Chenoweth said on Tuesday that she's superstitious - she doesn't usually watch the nominations. "I think I would be so heartbroken watching and then not getting called," Chenoweth said. She said both times she was nominated that her manager had to call her.

"It's great," she said of receiving the news that she'd been nominated in the past.

Chenoweth said many people were celebrating, but that others are sad. "I've been on that end too," she said.

When asked about this year's crop of nominees, Chenoweth said she's excited for the cast of "Once." The musical is in the lead with 11 nominations.
