Emmy nominees answer: What TV world would you hang out in?

Andy Samberg Brings Star Power to 2015 Emmys

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Most TV stars are also TV fans. That means the year's Emmy nominees all have their favorite shows, and some have imagined what it might be like to hang out in one of the alluring worlds of the small screen.

Here's what they have to say:

— "OK, 'Game of Thrones.' Oh my god. Give me a sword. Give me a sword and a dragon. I will sort out some stuff in that fictional world." — Ricky Gervais, nominated for his lead role in the Netflix series "Derek."

— "I'm obsessed with 'The Affair.' I love 'The Affair,' but the Hamptons is pretty close. ... I'm actually in the Hamptons right now, so I could totally go to the Lobster Roll, which is where Ruth Wilson's character works. I'm somewhat in 'The Affair' already." — Jane Krakowski, a supporting actress nominee for Netflix's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt."

— "I wouldn't mind being in the 'Game of Thrones' — somewhere where I wasn't about to be killed. I think I'd probably have to hook up with Khaleesi and fly that dragon. Me? Khaleesi? A dragon? That sounds good." — Queen Latifah, nominated for playing Bessie Smith in the HBO movie "Bessie."

— "I don't know, 'Downton Abbey'? I could be like the troublemaking American cousin who shows up and needs help; like I killed someone in America, so I had to flee to Downton Abbey." — Maggie Gyllenhaal, up for her lead role in Sundance TV's "The Honorable Woman."

— "Oh, as myself? As an actor, I can think of quite a few. As myself? Well, dramas — probably not that many because there's too much drama happening. For myself, I just want to go live in the Bahamas." — Joanne Froggatt, a supporting actress nominee for PBS' "Downtown Abbey."

— "That new show 'Ballers,' the one on HBO. I don't know that I'd want to hang out, but I think (the Dwayne Johnson character) would be a very useful friend to have. That's how I feel about that. He would be a good person to have on speed dial." — David Oyelowo, nominated for his lead role in the HBO movie "Nightingale."

— "This is weird, but I would love to be on a 'Poirot'-style, 1930s art deco, very, very wealthy British estate. Like in 'Poirot,' in the Agatha Christie TV movies that they do, all those specials that they've done since the '80s. Those are always so sumptuous and delicious, and there's always a new murder mystery to solve. As long as I'm not the one in trouble, there's probably at least good champagne." — Anna Chlumsky, a supporting actress nominee for HBO's "Veep."

— "I would only want to hang out if the 'Game of Thrones' cast were running the 'Mad Men' office. I think the 'Game of Thrones' would then have to be an entirely different cast. I think if the people in 'Veep' were running 'Game of Thrones' that could be really, really amusing." — Kevin Spacey, a lead actor nominee for Netflix's "House of Cards."

— "Nucky's hotel on 'Boardwalk Empire.' That place is glam. I like all the production design on 'Boardwalk.' That was a show that I really loved." — Andy Samberg, host of the 67th annual Emmy Awards.

— "I'd hang out in 'Futurama.'" — Tatiana Maslany, a lead actress nominee for BBC America's "Orphan Black."
