July 10, 2014

The nominees for the 2014 Emmy Awards are in and ET is with some of today's big nominees just moments after the announcement.

Among the leading contenders for TV's top prize is Orange Is The New Black. The Netflix series garnered 12 total nominations this morning including Outstanding Comedy Series and one for breakout star Uzo Aduba for her role as Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren. ET's Brooke Anderson caught up with the Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy nominee who was still in disbelief.

"I just kept saying, 'Are you joking? You're joking right,'" the OITNB star tells Brooke. "I called my mom who I knew was not watching or did not know and I called her and I was weeping."
