July 12-- "Queer Eye's" Jonathan Van Ness scored his second Emmy nomination Thursday morning-and he "can't even," as one of his famous taglines goes.

Van Ness also uses his self-care abilities and over-the-top personality with Fab 5 costars Karamo Brown, Bobby Berk, Antoni Porowski and Tan France in "Queer Eye."

"Oh my god," Van Ness wrote on Twitter Thursday morning. "Thank you sooo much @funnyordie @netflix I'm so grateful."

The Netflix reboot of "Queer Eye" received four Emmy nominations for structured reality program, casting for a reality program, cinematography for a reality program and picture editing for a structured or competition reality program.

"To be recognized in this way moves me to tears," Van Ness wrote on Instagram. "the gratitude, the love, gahhhhhh!!"
