LOS ANGELES - Attending the Emmy Awards as a nominee is the kind of heady experience that sends even veteran actors' and show-runners' tummies aflutter. But, of course, the show must go on.

Stars say they turn to booze, tunes and deep breaths to prepare for such moments. Here's what some of this year's nominees would prescribe for a case of Emmy-day nerves:

- "Oh, gosh. Maybe some vodka. A flask of vodka, I think. Don't you think? Oh, absolutely. Maybe a Quaalude. Perfect. There you go." - Jesse Tyler Ferguson of "Modern Family."

- "Oh, you mean pharmaceutically? Hmm. Baby aspirin. Baby aspirin and maybe just like a small children's pool of sangria." - Amy Poehler of "Parks and Recreation."

- "Champagne always makes a person happy. At least a bottle. Yeah. For myself." - Maya Rudolph, nominated for hosting "Saturday Night Live."
