Last Thursday (14) the Television Academy unveiled the nominees for its 68th Annual Emmy Awards, and Fargo received an impressive and well deserved 18 nominations for its second installment, including Best Actress (to Kirsten), Supporting Actor (to Jesse Plemons and Bokeem Woodbine), Supporting Actress (to Jean Smart), Outstanding Limited Series, Outstanding Casting, Cinematography and Writing.

Kirsten talked to LA Times right after the nominations.

It’s a good day for “Fargo.”
Yes. We’re all texting each other: “So happy!” It’s a great group of people and I feel like what Noah [Hawley] does with “Fargo,” it’s so well-deserved and he’s such a genius. It’s just so nice to be recognized for something that you’re proud of, because that doesn’t always go hand-in-hand.

Are you celebrating?
I will later, I guess. I’m in Santa Fe. I’ll buy myself some turquoise, maybe. Go look at some art.

Peggy took an unexpected journey on the series.
That’s a tribute to Noah and his writing team. I knew from the beginning it was going to be special. The writing on that show is so great and the character was so unique. Things just don’t get written that often for women to play. It was just so fun and there was so much for me to do and play in that role.

The award ceremony will be held on Sept. 18 at the Microsoft Theater, and will air live on ABC, with Jimmy Kimmel acting as host.
