    You may know her from such works as Ramona and Beezus...

    20th Century Fox

    ...or The Kissing Booth...

    Netflix

    ...or, most notably and recently, The Act.

    Hulu

    Well, just this morning, our fair Joey was nominated for her FIRST-EVER EMMY AWARD for her role as Gypsy Blanchard in The Act.

    The only thing more amazing than this 19-year-old tour de force getting her first Emmy nom is her REACTION to getting said nom.

    First, we both broke down in tears:

    Then she called her mom, still in shock:

    Yes, Joey. We can.

    AND THEN she called her fellow co-star and nominee, Patricia Arquette.

    What a pure human. As they say in The Kissing Booth, "Always be happy for your bestie's successes!"

    I cannot deal.

    So three hips and a hooray for Joey King! Congrats on your nomination, JK! Hopefully this is the first of many!
