Lynskey replied, “You could rightfully say all of these things to any one of these amazing women (apart from ‘I love you’, please) ❤️❤️❤️.”
The actress later gushed about her husband’s sweet reaction to her nomination. “He’s so excited. We had a little cry. I mean, it’s really sweet,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “He made some toast for me while I was in the middle of talking to people. He made some toast that he cut into the shape of the word ‘Emmy,’ which took a lot of time I think. And it was really cute. So yeah, he’s really happy. And it’s nice [that] he’s not the only Emmy nominee in the house anymore.”See Full Gallery
