Nominations for the 70th annual Primetime Emmy Awards were announced this morning, and while nominations for The Handmaid’s Tale and Killing Eve dominated headlines, Netflix’s Queer Eye reboot also received some love from the Television Academy.
The reality series received four nominations including Outstanding Structured Reality Program—14 years after the original took home its first Emmy for Best Reality Show.

Once the news broke of the reboot’s nominations, the Fab Five had the cutest reactions on social media—and what made it even better was that we know they were all together thanks to a video Jonathan Van Ness posted on his Instagram (JVN was not only nominated for Queer Eye, but also for his digital series, Gay of Thrones).
Can you believe? Check out their emotional reactions below.

Queer Eye nominated for 4 Emmys. Insanely grateful and proud of every associate producer, assistant, executive, production team member, casting, editors, show runners, and OG Fab Five for making it all possible. Oh, and @tanfrance @bobbyberk @KaramoBrown @jvn too duh. ❤️

The moment I found out about #gayofthrones , we all just had found out about @queereye 4 nominations, all my friends here are so supportive and excited for my success as much as theirs. Gay of Thrones was a baby idea @gibblertron and I had that literally was a pipe dream. This is truly out of my wildest dreams 💙
Of course the Queer Eye guys make us cry even when we are not watching their show. Congrats, boys!
