Elizabeth Moss, star and executive producer of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” revealed that she learned of the exciting news thanks to a GIF of shirtless Anthony Rizzo!

“I woke up to a GIF from my publicist, Erica, of a shirtless Anthony Rizzo from the Cubs and knew it was good news (because a shirtless Rizzo is always good news) but 13 is blowing my mind!” Moss told TV Guide.

[It might be this one, but we cannot confirm.]


She admits that the 13 nominations, including a nom for her in the “Lead actress in a Drama” category, is a “shock” but continued by saying, “I’m so intensely proud of my cast and crew who put their blood, sweat and tears (literally) into this show. This is not a solo sport, and each and every one of them is responsible for helping make something we could be proud of.”

Dreams really can come true:) 💙💙💙@Cubs #joemaddon

The hit show is on Hulu and is based off the 1985 book by Margaret Atwood.

Can anyone recommend any good books to read? 😉
