By Jackie Willis
Amy Schumer wasn't feeling so hot the day she found out that she was up for a whopping six Emmys.
Just hours before the highly anticipated awards show, the 35-year-old comedian shared a video of her reaction to the nomination news. "The day I found out I was nominated for six Emmys," she wrote. "I was so sick. And now they are tonight! #balmain."
After the nominations were announced in July, Schumer tweeted that she wasn't so confident that her show would be winning a primetime Emmy this year. "Thank you! We have a really good shot at beating [Beyonce's] Lemonade, right?" she quipped. "Hello?"
However, at last year's Emmy Awards, the Comedy Central show won for Outstanding Variety Sketch Series and Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics.
Prior to sharing this throwback video, Schumer revealed on Instagram that she had been hospitalized after getting food poisoning in Paris, France. The vulnerable moment made for a hilarious Instagram video. Take a look:
