Here are a few more quotes from Walton about his Emmy nomination this morning.
Walton Goggins was typically humble Thursday when reacting to his supporting actor Emmy nomination for “Justified.”
“At a time in television where such extraordinary performances are being given, I’m just grateful to be included, humbled and grateful,” Goggins told me via e-mail.
Palm Beach Pulse:
“Is it weird that I’m having champagne and eggs right now?” — Walton Goggins, nominated for supporting actor in a drama series for FX’s “Justified.”
Los Angeles Times Blog:
Congratulations on the good news.
I feel like I’m floating in a vat of liquid gratitude. It’s surreal. This may never happen again in my lifetime but to go through this experience now, it doesn’t get better than this.
Cable networks did very well this morning.
I’ve been with FX for a decade [first with “The Shield”]. I’ve been in the front row of everything they’ve accomplished. I’m pinching myself.
What has been the appeal of “Justified”?
People in this business were taken with this world, which is not exactly explored in entertainment. It’s like reading a novel. I think Margo Martindale had a lot to do with our show getting a lot more attention.
As I’m sure all Walton fans would agree with me by saying that this nomination has been a long time coming for Walt, and we’re very happy
it came this year. In addition Walton’s co-star Timothy Olyphant
was also nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Drama
as well as Margo Martindale
for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama
and the talented Jeremy Davies
for Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama
, all of which are for Justified. How great is that? Congratulations Walton!

This is the brief description from IMDB for next week’s Season 2 finale of ‘Justified’.
The quest for a missing person forces Raylan to wade into a war that has erupted in Harlan between Boyd and the Bennetts.
Raylan out for blood? Hm, sounds interesting!
lauren198: How about anything related to my favorite show Justified!
We never get tired of talking about how awesome Justified is. It’s so awesome! This week’s episode is no exception. We’ll admit we are suckers for bad boys and Boyd (Walton Goggins) is a bad bad boy. This week Boyd is staking his claim on the seedier aspects of Harlan County and in doing so he’ll be making some dangerous enemies. No doubt Raylan (Timothy Olyphant) will be out for blood when he learns of the latest tragic collateral damage. Oh, we can’t wait!
The ‘Justified’ finale is starting to look pretty good y’all!
You may have realized that we are a little obsessed with this show. OK, a lot obsessed. This week’s episode is so fantastic that you just have to watch for yourself. Seriously, you will not regret it. But if you need a little tease: There’s a good ole fashioned whoop-de-doo, Boyd (Walton Goggins) and Ava (Joelle Carter) dancing, a big death and what is sure to be Margo Martindale’s bone-chilling Emmy nomination clip. We’re going to go out on a limb and suggest that the events of this episode are so important they could launch a thousand bullets and propel us through to another amazing finale
