It was a beautiful morning up in Silicon Valley: The HBO start-up comedy nabbed 11 nominations, including its third straight nod for Outstanding Comedy Series. And in a nice surprise, the show scored its first acting Emmy nom, as Thomas Middleditch was honored in the Outstanding Lead Actor category for his sharp, endearing portrayal of Pied Piper’s mousey, jittery, fired-then-rehired CEO Richard Hendricks. EW rang up Middleditch on Thursday to see how he downloaded the good news.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Congratulations. Were you feeling optimistic, pessimistic, nervous, anxious, or a little of everything going into this morning?
