The stars of Black-ish are having a golden day!
Not only was the hit ABC series nominated for Best TV Comedy at the 2017 Golden Globe Awards, stars Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross were both nominated as well.
To celebrate Anderson and Ross' first-ever Globes nominations, ET caught up with the Johnson family's patriarch and matriarch on Black-ish's Los Angeles-based set on Monday morning and found out how they shared their the great news with their families.
Ross confessed that while her whole family was congratulating her in their group text message chain, her mom, iconic singer Diana Ross, was particularly thrilled with her daughter's nomination.
"My dad was really excited. I got him on the phone. I got my mom on the phone," Ross revealed. "My whole family is very excited. My mom in the text said, 'I want this for you. I want this for you.'" Awww!
Anderson, on the other hand, was still waiting to see how his mother would react to his nomination news. "I just sent a group family text. I'm waiting on my mother to respond. My children have responded already. I 'm just waiting on my momma," the 46-year-old actor shared. "They sent emojis. Number one dad, number one all that -- they're excited for me."
Ross revealed that the icing on today's sweet Golden Globe surprise is the fact that she and Anderson are a part of such a diverse list of nominees.
"In light of everything that is going on with our country, looking at the nominations -- the full list of movies, television, everything -- the diversity this year and the acknowledgement of a lot of extraordinary work that's been out there, it feels wonderful to be a part of that company," she said.
"Diversity, not just being people of color, but age and all the different kinds of stories," Ross continued. "Even in just my category, I was really excited about the different age range, the different kinds of stories that are being represented and told. I thought that was very exciting."
