The program was also nominated for Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program, Outstanding Cinematography for a Reality Program, as well as Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured or Competition Reality Program.

The Emmy nominations are a little sweeter for Van Ness, who, in addition to his work on Queer Eye, was nominated in the Outstanding Short Form Variety Series category for his work on Gay of Thrones, which he executive produces along with Ross Buran, Kate Lilly, Erin Gibson, and Matt Mazany.

"Oh my god," Van Ness said on Twitter, showing his gratitude. "I can't even."

Oh my god. I can’t even. Thank you sooo much @funnyordie @netflix I’m so grateful

And it wasn't just the Queer Eye gang who got emotional. Fans were feeling the love too.

anyone else tearing up watching the queer eye guys react to their emmy noms on instagram? no? just me? ok

Others were just as thrilled as the guys. Maybe even more so. "BITCH IM SOBBING INTO MY SHEETS I LOVE MY BABIES SO MUCH THIS IS EVERYTHING" said one highly enthused fan.

Funnily enough, the new Queer Eye is following in its predecessor's footsteps in more ways than just format. The original show won an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program in 2004.
