The Golden Globe nominations were announced this morning and stars like Natalie Portman, Colin Firth, Ryan Gosling and Amy Adams were up early and excited about releasing their 'OMG thank you' statements.
Check out their great reactions below...
“I’m very honored by the HFPA nomination, and to be included in this group of actresses I so admire. The experience of filming “Black Swan” with Darren Aronofsky and our incredible crew is already the most fulfilling experience of my career. The audience appreciation of the film is only furthering how grateful and proud I am to be part of the film.”
--Natalie Portman, Black Swan
"To be selected with these extraordinary nominees is an honor and boy was I ready for some good news!"
“This nomination is an honor and I am thrilled to share it with my friend, my co-conspirator, and my favorite dance partner, Ryan Gosling. Thank you so much to The Hollywood Foreign Press, The Weinstein Company and of course to the inestimable Derek Cianfrance, whose vision led and sustained us all.”
--Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine
“I am very thankful to the HFPA for this honor. The prestige of the nominations draws attention to independent films like Black Swan and I think helps get these small films made. I am also so thrilled for my actors Natalie and Mila who gave me their spirits to film and risked losing toe nails every day.”
--Darren Aronofsky, Black Swan
"I am very grateful to the HFPA. I also would like to thank them for acknowledging Michelle Williams for her incredible performance. Without the 12 years of director Derek Cianfrance’s unwavering vision and commitment none of this would have been possible. I share this nomination with both of them."
--Ryan Gosling, Blue Valentine
“What an exciting morning for our film, especially when you consider what a terrific year it was for movies. Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this honor and also for recognizing Mark, Melissa, Christian and David’s great work. I am deeply proud of the film and to be honored for it is icing on the cake.”
--Amy Adams, The Fighter
“I’m truly grateful to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign press for this film, and euphoric to be in the company of so many of my colleagues.”
--Colin Firth, The King's Speech
“I’m especially grateful to the HFPA for this honor and I’m excited to see 127 HOURS being recognized this awards season. I’m happy for Danny Boyle and his team and our DP’s Quique and Anthony who were there with me down in the canyon! I am so proud of the film and that Aron Ralston’s story has been well received!”
--James Franco, 127 Hours
“It took more than four years to get our little movie off the ground, and to be recognized for my work in a film that means so much to me is truly such an honor. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for your continued support.”
--Nicole Kidman, Rabbit Hole
“Playing an Australian commoner called upon to teach an reluctant English King some life lessons for me was fascinating in itself. To have it embraced by American audiences and to be so honored by the HFPA only endorses how global this story has become. Seeing a small scale project play into an international arena makes this all the more worthwhile. I’m very proud to be a part of this film and thrilled for my colleagues who were also nominated in such illustrious company.”
--Geoffrey Rush, The King's Speech
