Britton is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama at the 63rd Primetime Emmy Awards for portraying Tami Taylor on Friday Night Lights.
I was in fact asleep during the nominations – it truly is the ‘I’m in bed asleep’ story — ’cause, you know, I’m in L.A. and it’s freakin’ early, dude! Then my publicist called me and told me. I actually had a weird dream in the middle of the night that we didn’t get nominated and Kyle and I were talking, like, ‘Yeah, we didn’t get nominated.’ So I woke up from a series of bad dreams to have a very happy reality. Kyle called me and was like, ‘I just jumped in the pool with my wife!’ ‘Cause he’s in Austin, and he was thrilled. I told him he better not blow out of the Emmys early like he did last year.
