Golden Globes 2013: Jennifer Lawrence, Ben Affleck and more react to nominations
The Golden Globes nominees in the film and television industries have been announced, so you know what that means: It's time for the reactions from all the celebrities who were recognized. We've compiled some of the best responses below, though we're sure that it won't take long for everyone who is on the lengthy list of nominees to give their thanks in one form or another. For now, enjoy!
Jennifer Lawrence: "'Silver Linings Playbook' is such a beautiful film, and David O. Russell wrote and directed an incredible screenplay featuring characters that skew off center, have extreme ups and downs, and are so nuanced. I am grateful to be part of it, and for the opportunity to do this role. And now, to be in a category of other talents - Meryl Streep, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith and Emily Blunt - who have also portrayed independently minded and driven female characters....that's very cool. "
Anne Hathaway: "What a great way to wake up! I couldn't be happier or more grateful for this news. Congratulations to Hugh and everyone who worked on Les Miz for their contribution to the best picture nomination!!!"
Ben Affleck: "These nominations reflect the courage and determination of real life heroes in the US, Canada, Iran and across the globe. They honor more than 120 actors with speaking roles in multiple languages, thousands of extras in the US and abroad as well as hundreds of extraordinary crew members who poured their heart into the film including the great Alan Arkin, brilliant Chris Terrio and extraordinary Alexandre Desplat, who were nominated today as well and who have my congratulations and gratitude. Thanks again to the HFPA for their support."
Helen Mirren: "Alma thanks you from the bottom of her heart for the recognition of her contribution to film."
Nicole Kidman: "Can't believe it! Thank you to all the actors who nominated me and especially to John Cusack and Zac Efron, who gave me so much. I am in Europe filming Grace Kelly and I was completely taken by surprise. Love & hugs, Nic xx"
Julianne Moore: "I'm in a van on my way to Queens to do '30 Rock.' I heard the news this morning right before yoga. I was just about to shut off my phone. Unfortunately, I knew the nominations were being announced, so I was worried." (via Associated Press)
Jack Black: "OK...I'm only doing Richard Linklater movies from now on. I'm so proud of our little engine that could. Thank you HFPA!"
Mandy Patankin: "I am thrilled to be a part of this company. Working on HOMELAND has been one of the joys of my life. We have such gifted writers - I have to pinch myself every day that I get to be a part of this company."
Katharine McPhee: "I'm absolutely thrilled to be in such wonderful company and to be honored by the HFPA."
Sofia Vergara: "This is such an exciting week! I'm so grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this nomination. There's no one more fun to play then 'Gloria' and I feel lucky every day I get to be on set with my 'Modern Family.' I'm so happy for Eric and of course the rest of my cast for our nomination."
Hayden Panettiere: "I woke up to this news, cried and then made myself a grilled cheese. I am so honored!"
