Claire Danes: Being Nominated for an Emmy Is 'Like a Nightmare Come to Life'

"If you lose, you have to cope with that sting, and if you win, you have to get up and say something eloquent and charming, and remember to thank your husband or your wife," Danes tells PEOPLE. "It's always the vital person you forget to thank. It's terrifying. And then you see the clock ticking. It's awful, that particular part of it."
