Jessica Jones has best response to show's Emmy snub


Netflix show Jessica Jones missed out on an Emmy nomination in the major categories but the cast were not about to let the snub ruin their day.

Krysten Ritter, who plays the superhero-turned-private eye, turned to the best form of therapy to cope with the slight, with a simple "Whatever" to the awards panel.

To be fair to the show, they did get nominated in two categories: outstanding main title design and outstanding main title theme music.

And there were no hard feelings, because, as they pointed out, the ceremony is still the perfect excuse to get drunk on the Emmys' dollar.

Those who did get nominated for their leading and supporting roles had slightly more effusive Twitter celebrations.

The stars of Game of Thrones, which got the most nominations, celebrated their supporting actor/actress in a drama series nods.

Emilia Clarke wrote, "NOMMY EMINATIONS! Oh no wait.... I mean EMMY NOMINATIONS!!! Now THIS is what I call the definition of GIRL.POWER! So honoured to be with my QWEENS!"

Downton Abbey's Elizabeth McGovern spoke for the cast as the hit ITV show was honoured with a nod for outstanding drama series for its farewell season.

James Corden could barely believe his two nominations.

Other big nominees shared their happiness.

Lead actor in a mini series nominee Courtney B Vance, who starred as defence attorney Johnnie Cochran in the second highest-nominated show The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, said he was proud his family were able to see the nomination.

He wrote: "When we finished the incredible journey of creating this groundbreaking project, The People v. OJ Simpson, we all knew we'd created something incredibly wonderful and special together!

"To receive an Emmy nomination today is the continuation of this phenomenal journey and is indeed a true blessing and honor."

Amy Schumer added for her multiple awards: "Thank you for the Emmy nominations, I am so grateful and proud today."

But perhaps the best response goes to Tituss Burgess, who let his Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt character do the talking/singing when he found out about his nom for supporting actor in a comedy series.

"Ahhhhhhhh I was just nominated for my second Emmy. #giggling #cannotbelieveit #pouringadrink #unbreakablekimmyschmidt #titusandromedon," he posted.
