Kyle Chandler’s reaction to his Emmy nomination is my new favourite thing, celebrating with a sandwich sounds terrific, from The Hollywood Reporter:
“I was out front throwin’ the ball with the dogs and my wife came out, gave me a big hug and said congratulations. I said, what about Connie [Britton]? What about Connie? And she goes, ‘Yup.’ I was like, ‘Yes!’ And she shoved me in the swimming pool. That’s how the day started,” Chandler told THR. ”This show has changed not just my professional life but how I look at how things work. I’m just so damned fortunate to be part of that — not just writers, producers, directors, from the very bottom to the very top.” Chandler, who was also previously nominated forGrey’s Anatomy shared his celebration plans: “I’m going into town to get myself what I call a ‘success sandwich.’ On my first show Tour of Duty I’d go up to Valencia on a motorcycle because I had no car, it was November, windy and cold, and I’d make myself a bagel with onions, cream cheese, lox, whatever I could put on that damn sandwich. For me that sandwich is still to this day the taste of Hollywood, the taste of success. My wife said, ‘How are you gonna celebrate?’ I said that. She said, ‘You’re so weird.’ ”
