Whether it's your best friend's wedding or the Emmy Awards 2018, having a supportive plus-one on your arm always makes the night a little better. Tonight, Justin Timberlake is taking on that supporting role for his wife Jessica Biel, who is nominated in the Lead Actress in a Limited Series or Movie category at the Emmy Awards 2018. And the "Man of the Woods" singer is taking his job very seriously—so serious in fact that he promises things could get "obnoxious" if Biel takes home the gold.

"It means everything to me to be nominated for the first time for this," Biel told E! of her nomination for the USA thriller The Sinner. "It's an absolute, massive honor and a dream and just wonderful. I'm very, very excited."

Justin Timberlake, who joined Biel on the Emmy Awards 2018 red carpet, couldn't help but gush with pride over his wife, claiming that he is even more thrilled than she is about the nom. "I’m more geeked out than she is," said Timberlake. "I saw how much she put into it. I'm just so proud to be here and see this happen for her."

And this hubby promised we'll see some serious—even obnoxious—fan-girling from him if Biel snags the award. "I might be obnoxious," mused Timberlake when E! host Giuliana Rancic asked what would happen if Biel wins the lead actress award. "I might do something obnoxious... I'm very good at obnoxious!"

Luckily, Biel is totally on board for her husband's over the top antics. "I would hope for nothing less than [something] like really inappropriate," she said. Supportive spouses for the win!

Here's hoping that Biel scores that gold statuette if only to witness Timberlake's "obnoxious" reaction to his wife's victory. Fingers crossed!
