“So I’m sitting at home watching and it was hilarious,” the actress said of her experience witnessing her co-star Anthony Anderson read their nominations last month. “I screamed when Anthony, when he said his name, I was literally like a seal. And then, when he got to my category, I was like, ‘Are they going to go with the Ellis, or the Ross?’ And I was like, ‘Oh God, the E’s are done!'”

She continued, “My name came up and I jumped up, ran around my dining room table, opened my front door, went in my courtyard and was running around. I was like, ‘What am I doing? I have nowhere to go! Call somebody!’ I left my body. I was so excited.”
Tracee then revealed that she immediately woke her legendary R&B crooning mama, Diana Ross, to tell her the good news..

When asked what she’s going to do next, the TV vixen replied, “The Johnsons are going to Disney World,” referring to the show’s fictional family.

The 68the Primetime Emmy Awards is slated to air on Sunday.
