"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."
