Actor Sterling K. Brown say he’s trying to remain as calm as possible about his first Emmy nomination after 15 years in the business.

Brown received was nominated Thursday for his portrayal of prosecutor Christopher Darden in FX’s hit limited series, “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.” Brown says he’s spent Thursday trying to be as supportive of his fellow nominees on the show as possible.

The show earned 22 Emmy nominations Thursday, including six acting nominations for the cast, including Sterling’s co-star Sarah Paulson.

Brown says, “I’ve texted with Sarah and we told each other how much we love each other and how excited we are for each other.”

Earlier Thursday, Paulson told The Associated Press that she was more excited for Brown’s nomination than her own, and she sent him a series of unintelligible texts in her excitement.
