Originally posted 07/16/2015 05:50PM

Tituss Burgess was rendered speechless on Thursday morning after receiving his first Emmy nomination – an exceedingly rare occurrence, he must admit.

Burgess, 36, scored a nomination for best supporting actor in a comedy series for his portrayal of flamboyantly endearing would-be musical-theater actor Titus Andromedon on Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

"I was uncontrollable," the actor tells PEOPLE upon hearing the news. "I sobbed, and I couldn't believe it, and I'm usually so brilliant at always having something to say."

Amy Schumer on Sexism in Entertainment: 'I Think People Hate Women'

Originally posted 05/27/2015 05:50PM

Amy Schumer has a theory about the inherent inequality of women in show business: "I think people hate women."

In a roundtable of comedic actresses assembled for The Hollywood Reporter's latest issue, the Inside Amy Schumer creator and star adds, "I don't think they want to hear a woman talk for too long. A lot of people project their mom yelling a them."

Schumer continues, "My [career] has been about tricking people into listening. I'm not saying all men hate women, but there's such an aggression."

For the magazine's June 5 issue, THR sat down with Schumer, Lena Dunham, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Ellie Kemper, Jane the Virgin's Gina Rodriguez, Black-ish's Tracee Ellis Ross and Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon to discuss the struggles of being a woman in entertainment and the sexism they've encountered throughout their careers.

If you spent the weekend binge-watching Netflix's Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, there's an excellent chance that the theme song has burrowed its way into your brain.

For the uninitiated, the theme song is a play on the viral phenomenon that was Antoine Dodson's "Bed Intruder" song – you know, "Hide yo' kids, hide yo' wife."

Following the rescue of the Indiana Mole Women (including Ellie Kemper's Kimmy Schmidt) from the underground bunker in which they lived, the reaction of a man named Walter Bankston (Mike Britt) was taped on the local news.

What's another weekend eaten up by a Netflix binge? Your laundry can wait.
