Kaley Cuoco has a big reason to celebrate: She finally has her first Golden Globe award nomination.
Cuoco is among the nominees for best performance by an actress in a musical or comedy TV series for her leading role on HBO Max's "The Flight Attendant."
The actress shared a video of herself Wednesday bursting into tears as she learned the news.
"Oh my God. I can't believe it," she told her husband, equestrian Karl Cook, who filmed her reaction.
"The Flight Attendant," produced in part by Cuoco's Yes, Norman Productions, stars the actress as a flight attendant who gets caught up in a murder mystery.
The series, which has already been renewed for a second season on HBO Max, was also nominated for best musical or comedy series.
Cuoco shared videos of her reactions to both nominations on Instagram.
"Thank you @goldenglobes #hfpa I will never ever forget this moment and I can't stop crying ... so proud of my entire team @flightattendantonmax ✈️ !!!!! YES NORMAN! ," wrote Cuoco, giving a little shout-out to her beloved dog, who died in January. (Cuoco coined her production studio after him in 2017.)
