Earlier this morning, it was announced that Wizards of Waverly Place scored a nomination for an Emmy Award!!! A few of the cast members from the show called up JustJaredJr.com to chat about the good news:
David Henrie: “I’m super, super excited. It’s a huge honor. My mom called me this morning and she goes ‘Congratulations, David!’ and I was like ‘For what!?’ and she was like ‘YOU GOT NOMINATED FOR AN EMMY!’ I was freaking out.”
Jake T. Austin: “I found out from Twitter! I literally woke up this morning and I normally don’t check it in the morning but… (David interjets and yells, “Don’t lie!”) I’m dead serious. I woke up at 7 in the morning, got up, checked Twitter and found out about the Emmy from executive producer Peter [Murrieta]. Then of course, I ran up to ask my dad and asked if it was true and jumped for joy. It’s nice to know that all of our hard work is being rewarded. It’s not just the cast but the crew, the writers and producers, everyone.”
Jennifer Stone: “My publicist called my mom – and then my mom woke me up with the news. It beats an alarm clock, I’d say. It’s really exciting and totally an honor. It’s such a collaboration between writers, actors and crew. Everybody comes together and does their part — definitely a group effort.”
Selena Gomez (via Twitter): “What an honor, I’m speechless. I am so blessed! Can’t wait to celebrate with the crew today!”
Since WOWP is up against Hannah Montana, JJJ asked David, Jake and Jennifer which Disney Channel show they’d want to win. Of course they all chose Wizards!
Jennifer joked, “Well, I think Hannah had its time – come on now!”
Congrats to the cast and crew of WOWP!!!
