The announcement of the 2019 Emmys nominations has been a rollercoaster of emotions: Game Of Thrones’  32 nods is causing controversy, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus is primed to become the most awarded actor in Emmys history.

It was also an emotional day for Julia Roberts, who was predicted to be nominated for her role in Homecoming, but was surprisingly snubbed by the Television Academy.

Rather than protest or complain at the lack of peer acclaim for her performance, the 51-year-old had a response that is worthy of some kind of award, if not an Emmy.

The actress shared a screenshot of her phone to Instagram that shows a push notification informing her that she’d been snubbed.

Roberts captioned the post:

“Well, I’m in exceptional company at least,” referring to fellow snubbed stars George Clooney and Emma Stone.”

In other Emmys related news, there’s been mixed reactions to Game Of Thrones earning a whopping 32 nominations. While the HBO series had plenty of fans, some are taking issue with the fact the show has been so highly praised given all the problems in the final season. Viewers were left disappointed by a disposable coffee cup accidentally left in one scene, and a water bottle in another, not to mention that overall it felt rushed.

But it’s undoubtedly a great day for Julia Louis-Dreyfus. The Veep actress is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series. She’s already taken home eight Emmys throughout her career, so if she wins this year, she’ll become the most awarded actor ever at the Emmys.

Louis-Dreyfus is up against Christina Applegate for Dead to Me, Rachel Brosnahan for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Natasha Lyonee for Russian Doll, Catherine O’Hara for Schitt’s Creek and Phoebe Waller-Bridge for Fleabag.
