Queer Eye, the most wholesome show on television, has netted four Emmy nominations today. We are all here for it. Mainly because it was a beacon of self-love in this dumpster fire of a world.

Someone who had an amazing reaction to their nominations was Jonathan Van Ness. In addition to his work on Queer Eye, Van Ness was also nominated for his work on Gay of Thrones. The web series for Funny or Die sees him recapping Game of Thrones will all the sass, boundless energy, and sheer joy that we can expect from the grooming expert.

Gay of Thrones scored an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series. Queer Eye‘s nominations were Outstanding Structured Reality Program, Outstanding Casting for a Reality Program, Outstanding Cinematography for a Reality Program, and Outstanding Picture Editing for a Structured or Competition Reality Program.

A Netflix employee caught a video of the cast, which also include Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, Antoni Porowski, and Tan France, reacting to the nominations. Van Ness, however, had the most priceless reaction by bursting into tears and flipping his luxurious mane of hair.

It’s so sweet to see the other members of the Fab Five react with just as much excitement to Van Ness’ double nomination. It makes our hearts feel full.

Van Ness also took to Twitter to express his joy.

We hope Queer Eye and Gay of Thrones absolutely slay at the Emmys this year!
