The 39-year-old actress received her fourth Golden Globes nomination on Thursday, for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role as Claire Randall on Outlander. When the annual awards show airs live from Los Angeles next month, Balfe will go up against Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale), Sandra Oh (Killing Eve), Julia Roberts (Homecoming) and Keri Russell (The Americans).

"Wow, thoroughly shocked and completely ecstatic to hear I am among the nominees for this years @goldenglobes," Balfe, who was also nominated in the same category in 2016, 2017 and 2018, tweeted. "A HUGE thank you to the HFPA for their continued support and a HUGE congratulations to Julia, Elizabeth, Sandra and Keri, I am beyond proud to be in your company."

"Mostly, thank you to my incredible fellow actors and the wonderful team of writers, producers and crew on @Outlander_STARZ that push me to my best," she added. "#GoldenGlobeAwards."

Although Balfe's Outlander co-star, Sam Heughan, wasn't nominated for his own Golden Globe, he couldn't be happier for his onscreen wife.

"CONGRATS LOVELY!!!!!" he gushed on Twitter. "So deserved and what a catagory [sic]. Or should I say Caitagory... #BalfeForTheWin."

Actor Richard Rankin, who plays Roger Wakefield on Outlander, was also thrilled about Caitriona's nomination, telling ET, "That's amazing. She's incredible. She carries the weight of that show single-handedly. The fact that she's nominated, season after season, is a testament to her extraordinary talent."

Outlander airs on Starz.
