“Scandal” star Bellamy Young received a wonderful surprise this morning (May 28) when she received the news of her Critics Choice Awards nomination live on air on the KTLA news morning show. 

During her appearance on the show, entertainment reporter Sam Rubin asked Bellamy to help read the nomination in all the categories, which she did brilliantly.

However, when she got to the best supporting actress in a drama category, Rubin only gave the actress five of the nominees to read, leaving hers off the list. 

Watch as one of our favorite fictional first ladies finds out the great news above. Bellamy’s initial reaction of “I have to call my mom,” is priceless. 

The 4th Annual Critics Choice Awards airs June 19 at 8p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
