Lin-Manuel Miranda, who was recognized for his guest-starring role on HBO's "Curb Your Enthusiasm," responded to his nomination with a quip reminiscent of something Larry David's character on the comedy might say: "Pretty, pretty, pretty grateful," while Alison Brie, who stars in Netflix's "GLOW," reacted to her show's best comedy nomination by sharing a photo from set. "GLOW was nominated for an EMMY!! And so was our INCREDIBLE #BettyGilpin!!!" she captioned it. "So proud of all my girls and of our fantastic show."

And Tiffany Haddish, whose stint guest-hosting "Saturday Night Live" earned her her first Emmy nomination, added that she was "overjoyed." "I might even splurge for a new dress for this one!!" she tweeted. "Thank you everyone for your love and support! #sheready"

The 2018 Emmy Awards will broadcast live on NBC at 8 p.m. ET on Monday, Sept. 17. The ceremony will be hosted by "Saturday Night Live" stars Colin Jost and Michael Che.

Emmy nominee RuPaul issued a statement after the announcement:

“Making ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ is a labor of love. The fact that members of the Television Academy have recognized that passion by nominating us for 12 Emmy’s is a true honor. It takes a village, people. I want to recognize the hard work and dedication of my partners at VH1 and World of Wonder, our dedicated cast and crew, and most of all, the amazing queens that help us celebrate the heart and soul of drag. Condragulations to our fellow nominees.”- RuPaul Charles
