More on Walton’s Reaction to Emmy Nomination

Here are a few more quotes from Walton about his Emmy nomination this morning.

Chicago Tribune:
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.
