LOS ANGELES — Stars react to Tuesday’s 71st Primetime Emmy Award nominations:

———

“I was watching it live on my phone. I was in a restaurant with some of my friends from high school. My manager and my mom were on the way. We were having breakfast together. … It was a big mistake meeting in a restaurant, because the second we found out, we went crazy. I’m talking glass breaking and falling. People were freaking out thinking that somebody had passed out on my table. It was hilarious,” — Jharrel Jerome, up for outstanding lead actor in a limited series for “When They See Us,” in an interview.

“I’m in South Africa filming ‘The Kissing Booth 2,’ and I’m sitting in my transport vehicle with my producer. We just watched the livestream together and I’m on my (expletive) hotspot on my super old computer. This is like the greatest (expletive) moment of my life” — 19-year-old Joey King, who earned her first Emmy nomination for outstanding lead actress in a limited series or movie for “The Act,” in an interview.

“I’m at the dog park this morning with my fur children and started getting a lot of texts and phone calls all at once. I’m so excited to learn that the ‘Maisel’ family has been invited back to the party. This category is ridiculous. I can’t believe I get to be a part of anything with these amazing women.” — Rachel Brosnahan, up for outstanding comedy actress for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” in an interview.

“I was reading an essay about mathematics in bed with my dog. If you’re wondering if I’m a big math fan, I’m not. It was very hard for me to get through. It was talking about prime numbers, but it was just dull and thought provoking enough that it was distracting,” — Natasha Lyonne joked in an interview about what she was doing moments before finding out about her outstanding actress in a comedy series nomination for “Russian Doll.”

“This nomination is a tribute to Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Raymond Santana, Korey Wise and Yusef Salaam. Let’s all say their names. Yusef’s mother, Sharonne Salaam, is nothing less than a warrior for her son and a survivor of an emotional violence few of us will ever understand. I am utterly grateful to her. Thank you to the visionary Ava DuVernay and Netflix for giving me the blessing to be a part of this act of restorative justice” — Aunjanue Ellis, up for outstanding lead actress in a limited series for “When They See Us,” in a statement.

“I had just gone into my room to lay in the fetal position, when the phone started ringing. I knew it was Jen, my publicist, and I thought I wouldn’t answer it. Not even realizing today was the day,” — Giancarlo Esposito, who woke up not feeling well, said of his nomination for outstanding supporting actor in a drama series for “Better Call Saul” in an interview.

“It didn’t hit me that today was Emmy nominations day. I had a really early call time before the Emmy noms came out, and then it really hit me. All of a sudden, my nerves started kicking in. I told myself, ‘I have to put my phone on airplane mode. I can’t deal with this while I’m working. I have to focus on my work.’ Which I did. But then I got the nomination, and I was like ‘Oh my God.’ Having being nominated is beyond, it’s beyond. … I feel really grateful. Very lucky” — Julia Garner said while on set filming the third season of “Ozark.” She is up for outstanding supporting actress in a drama series for her role on the Netflix series.

“I’m feeling really jazzed. It might be the coffee I just had. But this feels so much sweeter because it’s the last time around for this show” — Anna Chlumsky, up for outstanding supporting actress in a comedy series for “Veep,” in an interview.

“This morning, my dad and I were out getting supplies. We did a little Irish jig, embarrassing ourselves, I’m sure” — Chris Sullivan, outstanding supporting actor nominee for “This Is Us,” said while on a break from working on a classic car at his parent’s house in Sacramento.

“It’s been getting a lot of buzz. That’s been a surprise. Obviously we believed in what we were doing. It was really great material, and everyone believed we were doing great work when we were doing it. There’s so much choice now, for one show to capture the conversation now is pretty rare,” — Jared Harris, who woke up to the news of him outstanding actor in a limited series or movie nomination for “Chernobyl,” in an interview.

“I’d been at a family reunion here in Wisconsin, near where I grew up. I didn’t have my phone with me when the announcements came out. I checked in with it about 45 mins later, because there’s so much activity here. So, it was something I had to clear a number of things out of the way in order to get back to it. It already was a beautiful day here otherwise, and this made it extra special,” — Tony Shalhoub, nominated for outstanding supporting actor in a comedy series for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” said in an interview.

“I’d had some coffee, was getting ready for an audition, feeling bad about myself, just another Tuesday. Now I’m trying to figure out where to go for Taco Tuesday. I’m sure there will be some champagne involved,” — Luke Kirby, who is up for outstanding guest actor in a comedy series for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” said in an interview.

“I was dead asleep and my phone rang and it was Joey King on FaceTime crying. But she was crying happy tears and I said “Did you get nominated?” And she cried and I said “What is it? Did you get nominated?” and she shook her head yes and then she said “We both did!” It was such a great feeling to see her face and feel her joy she is so damn talented and she kept saying “I couldn’t do it without you.” But she could have because she is an incredible talent. Then my boyfriend came in and told me about all the nominations for ‘Escape at Dannemora’ too. Then Ben Stiller texted me. So it was a pretty amazing morning,” — Patricia Arquette, who is up for outstanding supporting actress in a limited series for “The Act” and lead actress in a limited series for “Escape At Dannemora,” in a statement.
