Congratulations are in order!

Joey King, who is set to return in “The Kissing Booth” sequel as Elle Evans, just nabbed her first-ever Emmy nomination, and we couldn’t be prouder. Nominated for her role in Hulu’s “The Act,” the talented 19-year-old will be up against some of Hollywood’s biggest hitters — Amy Adams, Patricia Arquette, Aunjanue Ellis, Niecy Nash, and Michelle Williams — in the “Actress in a Limited Series or Movie” category.

To celebrate her incredible accomplishment and to share the news with fans and followers, Joey took to Instagram with a tearful video reacting to the 2019 Emmy Awards announcement:

This is me in South Africa on my way to set in the car live steaming The Emmy nominations announcement from the hotspot on my phone also known as the best moment in the world. My work on The Act was the most fulfilling and challenging work I’ve gotten to do as an actress thus far. To be nominated for an Emmy in a category with such INCREDIBLE nominees by my side, especially Patricia is the most surreal feeling. I haven’t stopped crying. Gettin to call Patricia right after and share this moment with her is something I’ll never forget. Thank you to everyone who made this possible, there’s so many people who are behind The Act that I couldn’t have done this without and I can’t wait to call all of them!!!! OH MY GOD I CANT BELIEVE IM NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY
