“Congratulations to my daughter Tracee Ellis Ross on her nomination for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series for her work on black-ish. So proud of you,” the message reads in the latest issue of The Hollywood Reporter before closing with “Love, Mom and the Ross family.”
When Tracee, 43, was nominated last month, her beloved mother was the first person she called.
“I got up and I ran and danced weirdly around my dining room,” she told PEOPLE that day. “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.”
Tracee joins costar Anthony Anderson, who was nominated for lead actor in a comedy series, and black-ish was also nominated in the category of outstanding comedy series.
“I was really excited when Anthony got nominated, then I was really excited when I got nominated, but the truth is that my thrill and over the moon-ness came from the show getting nominated,” she said.
The 68th Primetime Emmy Awards, hosted by Jimmy Kimmel, will air live on ABC from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles this Sept. 18.
