The actors who made the Emmy announcements Thursday received their own nominations.Chandra Wilson nabbed two nominations, one for the TV movie, "Accidental Friendship" and the other for "Grey's Anatomy."

And it was also a big day for "The Big Bang Theory's" Jim Parsons.

"Isn't that crazy? I really feel like I'm going to wake up from this. That sounds so weird. I was thinking, 'It kind of feels like Christmas,' but it also feels like a dream. I really feel like you don't expect it and it's so sweet," said Parsons.

When I asked Chandra how it felt to have five Emmy nominations she was shocked that she had that many.

"Oh listen to you. Is this five nominations? No, this is four. I can't even count. That is how messed up I am," said Wilson. "It does not change. There is nothing about it that makes you say, 'Oh, another one.' I am just as nervous, excited and elated today as I was the first time that it happened."

The host for the Emmy awards, Neil Patrick Harris, also received a nomination Thursday. This is his third. He received a nomination for his role on "How I Met Your Mother."
