Los Angeles - Zooey Deschanel thinks that being nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award is an "incredible honour".

The 32-year-old star of TV show New Girl - which airs on Fox in the United States and Channel 4 in the UK - was named as a contender for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series on Thursday.

She told Entertainment Weekly: "I wanted to be an actress since I was two years old. It's always been my dream and ambition. This is the kind of moment you dream about.

"Never in my wildest dreams would I have imagined that I could have this incredible honour and recognition. It's just so exciting."

'An incredible gift'

Her costar Max Greenfield also received a nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.

Zooey added: "I have such a great job that's just such an incredible gift, and I always want to be doing the work because I love the work and not for some other reason. [But] it just means so much to have this nomination."

She shared her excitement on Twitter with fellow Outstanding Lead Actress nominee, Lena Dunham. 

She tweeted: "So excited for the #Emmys! @lenadunham - what are our nails going to wear?!!!"
