Abbott Elementary and the show’s creator and star Quinta Brunson have been nominated for the 2022 Emmy Awards, and fans couldn’t be more ecstatic.

Brunson received a nod for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series, while the series received a nod for Outstanding Comedy Series. She also made Emmy history as the first Black woman to earn three noms in the comedy category in the same year, for writing, acting, and outstanding comedy.

Series co-stars Janelle James, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Tyler James Williams also received nominations.

James, who stars as Principal Ava Coleman, and Ralph, who stars as veteran teacher Barabara Howard, both earned a nod for Supporting Actress in a Comedy. Williams, who stars as fellow teacher Gregory Eddie, earned a nod for Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

The Emmy-nominated ABC sitcom is about a group of passionate elementary teachers in the underfunded Philadelphia public school system, who are determined for their students to succeed despite the odds being stacked against them.

Its revival of the sitcom mockumentary format – made popular by The Office and Parks and Recreation – quickly made its way into fans’ hearts, and many have celebrated the nominations on Twitter.

“So happy Abbott Elementary got nominations they deserve it so much,” wrote one fan.
