Before she left for work on Thursday morning, Taylor Schilling knew she had to take care of something.
"I was sitting in my apartment in New York, and I needed to go," the Orange Is the New Black star tells PEOPLE, "but I realized I also was going to need to acknowledge the Emmy nominations before I left."
Though her publicist had tried calling her earlier, Schilling had left her phone off – on purpose.

The ladies of Litchfield Penitentiary are back and better than ever.
Netflix released the trailer for Orange is the New Black's second season Thursday, and it finds the inmates full of sass and snark. The whole gang returns for round two – besides religious fanatic Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning), conspicuously absent after the season 1 finale's violent cliff-hanger. But Piper (Taylor Schilling) is in especially fine form, apparently put in solitary due to the scary altercation.
"Sadly, it's starting to feel like home in here," she quips of her white-walled cell.
She won't stay settled for long. A new prisoner, simply called "V", arrives to shake things up. She immediately incurs the wrath of Red (the two seem to be long-lost enemies) yet clicks with Crazy Eyes (Uzo Aduba).

Attention Orange is the New Black fans: The Ladies of Litchfield are back for a brand-new season.
"The beauty of this show is how we straddle the line between comedy and drama," Taylor Schilling, who stars as Piper Chapman on the prison-based series, tells PEOPLE. "It's a true ensemble. In season two, we'll see how Piper's story continues, but the show also gets wider and deeper to tell the stories of even more of the women."
In addition to Schilling, other fan favorites – including new dad Jason Biggs, Laura Prepon, Kate Mulgrew and Taryn Manning – will return, while newcomer Lorraine Toussaint joins the cast as inmate Yvonne "Vee" Parker.
