In case you still haven’t heard the magical news, Matt Bomer is nominated for his first Emmy Award! Yay!
The actor received the honor thanks to his beyond stunning performance in The Normal Heart, and we’re just over here crossing our fingers and toes that he wins.
“I’m in New York and was getting ready to go to work on White Collar. I got a phone call from my husband and he shared the news with me.” I’m sorta sad they couldn’t be together because you know his kids would have bear-hugged himand it would have been adorable.
Matt also told Good Morning America that he couldn’t quite grasp the news at first.
“I couldn’t even speak for the first minute. I was overcome with gratitude, just the moment was so profound for me. I’ve been working in TV for 13 years and to have this moment, I was completely overwhelmed and had to collect myself for a bit. Simon knew firsthand how hard I worked on this role, how much we put into it, myself as an actor, and us collectively as a family. it was just really great to get to share that moment with him.”
This is magical. Check out the video above for some Matt cuteness (ignore the random part where the camera zooms in on him for no reason–or enjoy it) and check out more of what he had to say to Good Morning America. Good luck Matt! Socialite Life is rooting for you!
