22 of 24: Amy Poehler of 'Parks and Recreation' on being nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series:

'I am so pumped about the [show's Outstanding Comedy nod]. I talked to [fellow Executive Producer] Mike Schur last night and asked him if he was going to watch [the announcement] live and he said, 'No, it makes me too nervous.' And I said, '[expletive] that, it's The Secret! Turn around and look at it in the eye -- it's going to happen!' I'm so excited. I've had, like, four sugar donuts and I'm eating Greek yogurt with honey and I'm about to blast out of here,' the actress said in a statement carried by TVLine.

This is Poehler's fourth Emmy nomination. She was nominated in 2010 for her role in 'Parks and Recreation' and earned two nominations during her time as a cast member on 'Saturday Night Live.'
