Reactions quickly started pouring in after the Emmy nomination announcements and we've got all the latest comments from your favorite stars.

"Mad Men" lead Jon Hamm: "I am beyond thrilled that our show has achieved such recognition from the Academy. It is testament to the hard work of all our cast and crew and indicative of the pride we take in making each episode. Additionally, I'm very excited to be included in such an amazing group of individuals for lead actor. All in all a great morning."

Jim Parsons: "Firstly, may I say how much more civilized it is to hear the nominations while on the East Coast, where they occur AFTER 8 a.m.? Secondly, I am over the moon that our show was nominated. I am so proud to be a part of 'The Big Bang Theory' always - so this chance for the whole team to be recognized and celebrate together is really thrilling. And, finally, I am so damn happy for Johnny Galecki. We have worked side by side for over four years now so believe me when I tell you how richly deserved this is for him."

Alec Baldwin: "I'm very grateful to the Academy and I'm looking forward to Season 6 of '30 Rock.'"

Kate Winslet: "I am completely beside myself with joy that 'Mildred Pierce' has received such tremendous acknowledgment!!!! I am incredibly proud to be a part of this great production. And especially thrilled for Todd Haynes today. All these nominations are thanks to his remarkable direction and generosity."

"Modern Family" star Ed O'Neill: "After all of these years in the industry, I am so touched and honored to be nominated for the first time for an Emmy Award -- especially on such a great show that I look forward to coming to everyday."

Jane Lynch tweeted: "'Glee,' Chris (Colfer) and me! Emmy noms. My birthday today as well. Imploding a bit here in Atlanta!"

Idris Elba: "This has been such an amazing morning for me! I am extremely honored to be nominated in two categories. 'Luther' has been such a passion project for me and working on (Showtime's) 'The Big C' was a great time. Also, my daughter told me I am going to be as famous as the guy from 'Twilight.'"
