But that wasn't all that made it special, as it turned out that her boyfriend Tom Pelphrey also picked up a nomination of his own, for Outstanding Guest Actor in Netflix's Ozark.
The star took to Instagram to share their reaction to the news in a video clip, which saw the two sit together and watch as the nominees in Kaley's category were revealed.
Once her name was announced, Tom immediately began to cheer while Kaley covered her face, getting emotional and breaking into tears.
He then leaned in to give her a hug as she exclaimed: "Oh my god." The reaction reads similarly to hers from the previous year, where she posted a clip of herself from home finding out about her nod.
