Anthony Anderson Shared Emmy Nod News With His Mom


Anthony Anderson appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden last night (August 14th) and opened up about his recent Emmy nomination. Corden said, [“This is your 8th Emmy nomination. Do you still get excited about the news or are you just blase. No, I get excited. And it is no secret that my mother, you know, wanted to be an actress but she was a single mother. James: We have a photo of you both here. This is you and your mum right here, there she is. My mother wanted to be an actress and raised me as a single mother and put her dreams on hold of being an actor to raise an actor so I was able to share that moment with her this year."] SOUNDCUE (:27 OC . . . her this year)

The Black-ish star continued, [“I get excited. I have I yet to be confused with the winner. But no, it's always exciting to be nominated. James: Where were you when you heard the news this area. In year my mother and I were doing a little press because we have this little game show called To Tell The Truth. Thank you. So we were doing press together. And normally my mother calls me or I will call my mother after the nomination. But this was the first time that we heard the news together. We were able to share it.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC . . . to share it)
