First, the actress took the time out to send a congratulatory message to all Emmy nominees. She also recognized all the crew members of the Television drama she was nominated under in a special shootout.

She wrote: “CONGRATS to ALL the nominees. SPECIAL SHOUT OUT to the @insecurehbo fam, the @insecurewriters, @the_a_prentice for our first Emmy nomination, and to our fearless leader @issarae for the OUTSTANDING LEADING ACTRESS that she is!!”

For her second post, the 36-year old shared a video that captured the moment she broke news of the nomination to her parent who are based in Nigeria. In the video, Orji’s parent could be seen reeling in joy as they praised and prayed for their daughter.

“Meeeeeeaaann. My heart is so full. Had to call the parentals…and they DID. NOT. DISAPPOINT. They had jokes, prophesies and praises ,” she captioned the post.

Orji played ‘Molly Carter‘ in the TV drama series ‘Insecure.’

She will be contesting with other actors for the ‘Best Supporting Comedy Actress’ category in the next Emmys Awards which is scheduled to hold later in the year.
