“SMILF” star Frankie Shaw felt like she’s living a fantasy when she found out that her Showtime series scored two nominations for next year’s Golden Globes.

In a tweet, Shaw revealed that she felt like she’s in one of the fantasies of her “SMILF” character Bridgette when she learned that she’s nominated for best performance by an actress, and the show earned a nomination for best television series in the musical or comedy category.

Shaw, who created and also exec produces the show, added that she’s “overwhelmed” by the recognition the show received and “excited” for what would happen at the actual awards ceremony. The 31-year-old actress ended her post by giving credit to the show’s cast and crew who all worked hard to make the show great.

Shaw told Entertainment Weekly that she heard the great news while she was being interviewed by a Boston radio station she grew up listening to. “It was pretty incredible,” Shaw told the news outlet after recalling how she asked the host of the radio program mid-interview if the Golden Globes nominations were already out after noticing that her publicist and agent had been trying to call her. The host then told Shaw and the station’s listeners that “SMILF” got two noms.

Soon after the nominations were announced, Shaw received congratulatory messages from her co-stars Samara Weaving (Nelson) and Raven Goodwin (Eliza). Meanwhile, Rosie O’Donnell (Tutu) as well as the Reimer twins (Larry) expressed how proud they are of Shaw. See their social media posts below:

While Shaw and her co-stars were thrilled by the Golden Globe nominations “SMILF” received, the Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights doesn’t think that the show deserves any recognition.

“Much to the approval of Showtime, women are treated as sexual toys by Hollywood moguls and actors. Indeed, [the network] basks in the sexual exploitation of women,” Catholic League for Religious and Civil Rights president Bill Donohue said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter on Monday. “[Its] twisted show [‘SMILF’] upped the ante a few weeks ago when it suggested that the Virgin Mary was raped and forced to give birth. Last night it depicted a homosexual priest sexually embracing a drunk.”

“Women [on the show] are objectified, Christianity is trashed and homosexuality is flaunted. No wonder ‘SMILF’ was just nominated for the 2018 Golden Globes ‘best comedy’ show. But it is not sure what Hollywood likes best: inviting men to see women as harlots, or bashing Christianity,” Donohue continued.

“SMILF” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. EST on Showtime.
