Tracee Ellis Ross has long been our favorite girlfriend for years now and it looks like Hollywood is finally getting around to noticing it too.

The star of ABC’s black-ish received her first career Emmy nomination and she took to Instagram to share her thoughts (and banging manicure).

According to PEOPLE Magazine the first person she called was to mom Diana Ross.

“I got up and I ran and danced weirdly around my dining room,” Ross tells PEOPLE. “Then I opened my front door and I don’t know where I thought I was trying to go, so I closed the door and I called my mom. She was really cute and we screamed for a little bit.”

Her co-star Anthony Anderson was also nominated for outstanding lead comedy actor. Black-ish will also compete for outstanding comedy series.

The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on ABC in Los Angeles September 18, 2016.
