Amy Schumer: I can’t catch my breath!

Amy Schumer has reacted to her Emmy nomination, admitting she feels like she’s “just had the best orgasm”.

The 34-year-old comedienne has gone from a relative unknown to a household name over the past few months.

On Thursday, it was revealed Amy has been nominated for Outstanding Lead Actress In A Comedy Series at this year’s Emmy Awards for her role in Inside Amy Schumer.

And the blonde beauty admits she can’t quite believe her luck at receiving the prestigious nod.

“I feel like I just had the best orgasm,” Amy told Entertainment Weekly when asked how she felt about the nomination. “I looked at my sister’s face, she’s throwing up that I said that. Yeah, it feels like I just had the best orgasms I didn’t even know I was capable of having. I can’t catch my breath. We were jumping up and down on the bed screaming, we’re so excited.”

And talent clearly runs in the family, as Amy’s sister Kimberly works as a writer on the series and has also contributed to earning the show a nomination for writing.

Amy added to the outlet she will definitely be attending the ceremony, which takes place in September, alongside her sibling.

Back in April, Amy hit headlines when she hosted the MTV Movie Awards. And following such a successful 12 months, the comedienne admits she doesn’t really know where to go from here.

“This is it for me,” she said. “That’s it. It’s going to be the best year of my life, and then I’m going to gain a lot of weight and open a bed and breakfast and live in seclusion. That’s it. I’ll be a tour guide at the Lizzie Borden house.”
