Burnett said, "I tried not to think of the Bible nominations. Roma was saying, 'I really feel it's going to get nominated.' But look, this did incredible numbers. One hundred million people in America saw it. It's the fastest-selling DVD in TV history. We just premiered in Australia and went No. 1 there. Sometimes those enormous numbers can backfire in terms of Emmy nominations. That's why I was trying not to think about it."
