Actor Matthew McConaughey is delighted to have been nominated for the Best Drama Series actor Emmy award for his role in True Detective.
“I am honoured to be nominated with such a talented field of actors,” the actor told ABC News.
“This is a tremendous category filled with some riveting performances. Thank you for this recognition.”
Scandal star Kerry Washington earned a best drama actress nod, and was just as excited as Matthew.
“I’m so honoured to be nominated. And so thrilled for Joe Morton and Kate Burton [co-stars and fellow nominees]! I’m crazy grateful that the TV Academy has acknowledged our show in these ways,” she said.
