After working on Bridesmaids for "half a decade," Judd Apatow had every right to be proud that the movie he produced was nominated for a Golden Globe.

But despite calling the acknowledgment a "very exciting thrill," Apatow, 44, held back when it came to boasting about the feat to his family.

"Today was my daughter Maude's 14th birthday, so I didn't tell anyone in my family about the nomination," the doting dad told PEOPLE shortly after nominations were announced Thursday. "I didn't want to distract from our morning festivities. I thought it would be rude to make it all about me."





But that doesn't mean the producer – whose film is nominated for best motion picture, comedy or musical – is about to brush off the nod.

"I'll celebrate tomorrow when it's daddy's time to shine," Apatow said with a laugh. "The nomination is completely unexpected. It's very fun."

We hope he had a completely hilarious weekend!
