Hugh Grant might be a little too excited about his Golden Globe nomination.

The actor was nominated for best performance by an actor in a limited series or TV movie for his role in A Very English Scandal on Thursday, and after hearing of the honor, Grant tweeted his NSFW reaction.

“Very, very kind of the Hollywood Foreign Press,” he wrote. “Am opening a jumbo jar of Vaseline in celebration.”

A Very English Scandal follows the true story of Parliament member Jeremy Thorpe (Grant), who was tried and later acquitted of conspiring to murder his ex-lover.

Grant is up against Antonia Banderas (Genius: Picasso), Daniel Brühl (The Alienist), Darren Criss (The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story) and Benedict Cumberbatch (Patrick Melrose) for the award.
