I thought the announcements were 8 o'clock, but that was 8 o'clock Eastern.I went out and took a nice long run to soak in this day.”
"I am incredibly surprised and shocked, but I am thankful. This is amazing. Winning last year, we were this new show. To get nominated again the second year is just awesome," said Lea Michelle
Jane Lynch said, "I certainly don't expect it. I was thrilled and I jumped up and down and couldn't wait to get here to tell you."
"To prove how much I was not expecting this, I slept last night. Had I been expecting it, I wouldn't have slept. I would have been up all night wide-awake and miserable. Instead, he got a surprise wakeup call this morning. "It was very early, so I thought something had gone wrong. They told me and all I could say was, 'Shut up. Shut up.' Then I had to make sure I wasn't still sleeping,” said Chris Colfer.
In his statement he also said, “I'm so excited to be nominated! I've been extra high pitched and stutter-y all morning!"
Chris also tweeted, OMGG! I can't believe it! Am I awake? OUCH! Yes, I'm awake! I'm going to obnoxiously tackle everyone I see today!"
