Nominations for the 70th Primetime Emmy Awards were announced Thursday morning and the nominees are feeling the love.

Here’s a roundup of some of the best reactions:

Jeff Daniels, outstanding limited Series for “Godless”

“My genuine gratitude to the Emmy Voters. ‘GODLESS’ was Scott Frank’s triumph. Thrilled to be a part of it. Plus I got to ride a horse.”

Sarah Paulson, outstanding lead actress in a limited series or TV movie for “American Horror Story: Cult”

“I am incredibly honored to have been recognized by the Television Academy, and want to thank Ryan Murphy and the entire cast and crew of ‘AHS,’ with a particular shout out to the magnificent Evan Peters, who inspires me and makes me want to be a better actor.”

Claire Foy, outstanding lead actress in a drama series for “The Crown”

“I am so grateful for and honoured by the Emmys continued support for ‘The Crown.’ I am so proud to have been part of such an extraordinary cast, crew and production team and I share this nomination with them. To be nominated alongside such incredible actresses is a true honour thank you Emmys….see you in September!!!”

John Legend, outstanding lead actor in a limited series or TV movie for “Jesus Christ Superstar”

“Being a part of ‘Jesus Christ Superstar’ was one of my favorite experiences in my career. Such a wonderful show, such a wonderful team. I couldn’t be more proud of what we all did together and I’m so grateful for the opportunity to do this.”

David Harbour, outstanding supporting actor in a drama series for “Stranger Things”

“It’s very very nice. I have to say to be acknowledged by my peers to even count them as me peers is a dream I never dared to dream five years ago so the fact that I’m in this category of people and playing on this level is a dream come true. I’m grateful for the crew, cast, writers, directors – I feel my performance is augmented and dependent on all the other departments so much and I can’t do it without them and less about me and more about the 500 people that work on ‘Stranger Things.’ I’m glad I can be representative for that excellence. I don’t take it home by myself, I share it with everyone.”

Samantha Bee, outstanding variety talk series for “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee”

“It’s been an interesting year for the show to say the least and none of it would have been possible without each person on my staff and each suit at TBS (it’s ok to say that–they’re very nice suits!). TBS bravely put a woman over 45 on TV and in turn I only got yelled at by the president once. We have some seriously special people on our staff and hearing them go crazy in the office right now is just the medicine this world needs.”

Ryan Murphy, outstanding limited Series for “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”

“Of course it’s thrilling to see this series attract so much recognition, and I am forever grateful to Tom Rob Smith for his brilliant take, to my producing partners Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson and Brad Falchuk for their collaboration and friendship, and to our talented cast who breathed such humanity into these characters. This was a heartbreaking story to tell, made more so by the fact that we continue as a culture to grapple with homophobia and shame and intolerance.”

Ted Danson, outstanding lead actor in a comedy series for “The Good Place”

“It’s truly an honor to be nominated, and especially nice not to be the oldest person in the category. Thanks, Larry.”

Elisabeth Moss, outstanding lead actress in a drama series for “The Handmaid’s Tale”

“What a morning! So grateful to the Academy for recognizing my work on ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ but I am completely BLOWN AWAY by the 20 nominations the show has received! I’m so proud of my amazingly talented castmates who were recognized - Ann, Alexis, Yvonne, Joe, Samira, Cherry and Kelly - and equally elated for our wonderful crew who work tirelessly to make the show so special. Working on ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ has been such a rewarding experience. To have it acknowledged in this way makes it all the more sweet.

Sandra Oh, outstanding lead actress in a drama series on “Killing Eve”

“I feel tremendous gratitude and joy with this nomination. I am thrilled for Phoebe Waller Bridge’s nomination and for the entire cast/crew of ‘Killing Eve.’ I share this moment with my community. PS. I think my mother at this moment may actually be satisfied.”

Allison Janney, outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for “Mom”

“I’d like to thank the Television Academy once again for this wonderful honor. I’m looking forward to getting back into production on Season Six of ‘Mom’ and playing with Anna, Jaime, Mimi, Beth and all of our amazing cast on the show. Congratulations to all the nominees this morning!”

Jason Bateman, outstanding lead actor in a drama series for “Ozark”

“I couldn’t have asked for a more talented, dedicated and tasteful group of people to work alongside on ‘OZARK.’ Every person, in every department, has a hand in earning these Emmy nominations and we are so grateful that the Academy, and the public, has found and embraced our show. A big thank you from all of us.”

Regina King, outstanding lead actress in a limited series or TV movie for “Seven Seconds”

“It feels amazing to be recognized for ‘Seven Seconds.’ It tells an important story which shines a light on truly relevant societal issues. The subject matter could not be timelier. I am incredibly proud of the work that our cast and crew put in.”

Henry Winkler, outstanding comedy series for “Barry”

“On the one hand I’ve been here before and I know not to get too excited…on the other hand I’m filled with HAPPY and so thrilled for Bill, Alec and the whole company.”

Tiffany Haddish, outstanding guest actress comedy series for “Saturday Night Live”

“OVERJOYED to be nominated for an #Emmy for when I hosted @nbcsnl!! I might even splurge for a new dress for this one!! Thank you everyone for your love and support!”

Jessica Biel, outstanding lead actress in a limited series or TV movie for “The Sinner”

“The news this morning was both shocking and completely wonderful! I’m beyond grateful to the Television Academy. I’m in awe of the talented women on television and the amazing storytellers we got to see this year and I’m truly thankful to be a part of that group. This recognition is so meaningful to me and my longtime producing partner, Michelle Purple, as well as the phenomenal creative team that wrote and nurtured this character and everything that is compelling about ‘The Sinner.’ I’m also proud to be producing ‘The Sinner’ season 2 with Bill Pullman, Carrie Coon and their amazing cast who are bringing their intriguing mystery to the small screen once again.”

Millie Bobby Brown, outstanding drama series for “Stranger Things”

“12 nominations for our show!! I love this cast and crew so much and I’m beyond thrilled to see how much ‘Stranger Things’ has been embraced by our peers and The Academy. It’s incredibly special and rewarding. I’m the luckiest girl….”

Tatiana Maslany, outstanding lead actress in a drama series for “Orphan Black”

“This is completely unexpected and a wonderful surprise to be remembered. As always, this nomination is dedicated to the Clone Club for their loyal and rabid support! This is an amazing send off for our final season. It meant so much to all of us who worked on the show for it to resonate with people. Thank you very much to the Academy for the recognition.

Betty Gilpin, outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for “Glow”

“Greetings from a shock and denial paralysis on my living room floor. Thank you to the Television Academy for making me throw my phone across the room as if it was made of lava needles. I am so overwhelmed and grateful to be a part of a show where women are allowed to be their weirdest, loudest, bravest selves. I’ll probably self-sabotage in a bold and creative way before the ceremony, so I hope everyone has a lovely autumn. Thank you, thank you, thank you. What. Is. Happening.”

The Duffer Brothers, outstanding drama series for “Stranger Things”

“We are grateful to the Television Academy for their amazing recognition for ‘STRANGER THINGS.’ This year’s nominations celebrate incredible shows and we feel honored to be alongside them. We’re so pleased for all of our cast and crew. Millie is a force of nature and a supernatural talent, and we are thrilled that she has been recognized. And David is a genius who has beautifully honed his craft - it’s a true privilege to work with him. ‘Stranger Things’ is, above all, a massive collaborative effort, so it makes us particularly happy to see so many of our ‘Stranger’ family recognized by their peers. As we work to finish our new season, nothing could give us a bigger boost.”

Gerald McRaney, outstanding guest actor in a drama series for “This Is Us”

“I am so honored and humbled to have received a second Emmy nomination for a show that I love dearly. The writing is spot on perfection and working with the actors on the show is a total joy.”
