Reactions to Golden Globe nominations

Celebrity reactions to the 71st annual Golden Globe nominations, announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif. The awards will be given Jan. 12.

n “There is not a molecule in my body that isn’t humbly grateful. From the second we made ‘The Fighter,’ it’s been a journey that began from a low point for me to a new period that I feel my life was leading up to, which is these films that are now being made. To receive those actors and the privilege of working with them and to have them work on multiple films is very exciting for me. If it’s exciting for audiences, then that’s wonderful.” — David O. Russell, nominated as best film director and screenwriter for “American Hustle.” The movie was nominated for best picture, musical or comedy.

n “I haven’t called anyone. I’m too overwhelmed! I’ve done a dance of joy in my hotel room. All of these nominations hopefully mean that more people will go and see it, and that is really exciting because I feel this film is pivotal and just so good for the world.” — Lupita Nyong’o, nominated for best-supporting actress in a film for “12 Years a Slave.” She listened to the announcement over the radio in Paris.

n “I’m thrilled and so grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press. One question: Does this mean I need two dresses?” — Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who received two nominations for her roles in the TV series “Veep” and the movie “Enough Said.”

n “I feel great. I think it’s wonderful that a little film like this has an opportunity, has a light shone in its direction.” — Jared Leto, nominated for best-supporting actor in the film “Dallas Buyers Club.”

n “Joel and Ethan (Coen) have completely changed my life. There’s a reason why (this) happens to so many actors who are involved in their movies because they create a stage for people to do their absolute best work. Not only the actors themselves, but everyone involved” — Oscar Isaac, nominated for best actor in a musical or comedy film for “Inside Llewyn Davis.”
