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)
