  • The 2021 Golden Globes nominations were announced Wednesday morning.
  • Kaley Cuoco burst into tears when she learned she was nominated for "The Flight Attendant."
  • Cuoco was never nominated for "The Big Bang Theory."

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.)
