Antoni Porowski Celebrated 'Queer Eye's Emmy Nominations With A BTS Instagram Post
For the second year in a row, Netflix's reality makeover series Queer Eye was nominated for multiple Emmys. And Fab Five member Antoni Porowski celebrated Queer Eye's Emmy nominations with a touching Instagram post, guaranteed to bring all fans to tears.
On Tuesday, July 16, Queer Eye picked up six Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Structured Reality Program, Outstanding Casting For a Reality Program, Outstanding Cinematography For a Reality Program, and Outstanding Directing For a Reality Program. And the reaction from the Fab Five to their Queer Eye Emmy nominations is almost more overwhelming then it was the first time around (which was hard to beat, since they were pretty damn emotional then, too).
Porowski's celebratory message was full of feels. The food expert shared a photo of what appears to be the Queer Eye cast and crew, with a "Kansas City" sign front and center. Their headquarters was in that city in Missouri, so odds are this was taken during filming of Season 3. "Today is a damn good day," he wrote in the caption. "This show changed my life and how I view the world I live in and its wonderful people & their stories." He honored commended everyone on set who worked on "this game-changer of a show." Ever the class act, Porowski made sure to thank the crew, the teams behind the scenes, and more. "We are all a part of this. ❤️ May we inspire others to create content that betters not only our lives but those of our fellows," he wrote.
Jonathan Van Ness also posted about the nominations on Instagram, though he shared a whole array of photos, which consisted of a screen-recorded video of his many nominations from the Emmys site. "HOLY SH*T 🤯😭🏳️🌈 SO PROUD of our #GayofThrones crew our third nomination & the @queereye crew with 6 NOMINATIONS 💙 I can’t believe 💕💕," he wrote in the caption.
In addition to his Queer Eye nominations, Van Ness' internet series Gay of Thrones is nominated for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series, making Tuesday an extra special day for the comedian and grooming expert. The short series, which began in 2013 pre-Queer Eye, recapped every episode of Game of Thrones after it aired, with a ton of signature Van Ness flair. It was nominated for the same category in 2016 and last year too. In a separate post, Van Ness admitted he couldn't wait to "plan these LEWKS" for the Emmys, sharing a throwback photo to the Fab Five on the 2018 Emmys red carpet.
Speaking of fashion, Tan France, aka Queer Eye's fashion expert, posted a video of the cast celebrating on his Instagram story, which was also reposted by culture expert Karamo Brown and designer Bobby Berk. The official Queer Eye Instagram also posted a cute video congratulating the cast on the six nominations, with a little compilation of hugs from the show.
Will the adorableness ever end? Probably not, and fans can get more content starting July 19, when Season 4 premieres on Netflix. Just in time to get you ready for the Emmys in September.
