The 66the Primetime Emmy Awards are just around the corner and the official nominatins for the awards were revealed this week. While we saw some very pleasant surprises, there were also some disappointing snubs, as well as some of the usual suspects.
Former Friends star Matt LeBlanc has been nominated in the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series category for his performance in the hit series Episodes. Matt has opened up about the moment that he learned about his nomination, admitting that he was shocked by the news, as he was sleeping at the time.
LeBlanc was chatting to the USA Today newspaper, when he told them, "I sleep so heavily that I forget when the phone rings that something wrong hasn't happened. I panic, 'Is the house on fire? Is someone hurt? What happened?' It never fails."
While Matt LeBlanc was clearly shocked to get the call about his Emmy nomination, he has admitted that he is delighted that he and the show are getting the recognition they deserve. Matt says that, now the show has become so popular, they are going to have to work even harder now to make sure the show keeps on delivering.
LeBlanc then went on to add, "It's validating. It's a good feeling. It's almost like the bar is set, you've got to push even harder now. To keep the quality of the show as high as we can."
Episodes completed its third season on Showtime earlier in the year and has been renewed for a fourth season of the show, which will premiere on Showtime sometime early in 2015.
