FNL’s phenomenal leading actors — Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton — have both been recognized for their outstanding work. Kudos!

Friday Night Lights is arguably the best drama on TV and yet, after four, flawless seasons, it has never gotten any Emmy love…until now, that is.

Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton, who play married couple Eric and Tammi Taylor on the critically-acclaimed NBC show, both received their first Emmy nominations — leading actor and actress, respectively –- and it’s about freakin’ time!

Connie, 42, agrees! “It’s just exciting. We’re about to wrap the show—we’re two weeks away from wrapping the show—and it’s been really melancholy,” she told EW’s Michael Ausiello. “I’m just feeling it. I’m feeling it approaching—the end is near. So this just feels like such an unexpected surprise and present.”

Both actors are up against some very tough competition. Other nominees in the Outstanding Leading Actor in a Drama Series category include: Jon Hamm, Hugh Laurie, Bryan Cranston, Matthew Fox and Michael C. Hall.

Connie has to beat the legendary Glenn Close, as well as January Jones, Kyra Sedgwick, Mariska Hargitay and Julianna Margulies in order to take home the award for Outstanding Leading Actress in a Drama Series.
