“Thank you thank you! I am truly honoured to be named amongst a group of such talented and inspirational women! Working on The Crown was the most magical experience in no small part thanks to the incredible cast and crew that supported and helped guide me through, including my wonderful friend, Josh O’Connor who has so deservingly been recognised today as well.

“I’m overwhelmed and humbled that the Hollywood Foreign Press has recognized both ‘The Trial Of The Chicago 7’ and ‘Borat Subsequent Moviefilm’. These nominations are a tribute to the talented creative teams that led and supported both films from inception to this moment. I especially want to congratulate the visionary of ‘Chicago 7’, Aaron Sorkin, and ‘Borat”s Tutar, the incredible Maria Bakalova. These two films are different, but they share a common theme—sometimes we have to protest injustice with our own farce. Thank you to the HFPA for this ridiculous amount of nominations. I’m so honoured — and in the event that we don’t win, I promise to hire Rudy Giuliani to contest the results.” —Sacha Baron Cohen

Kelley’s imagination to Susanne Bier’s visionary direction of every episode to Hugh Grant (!!!), Donald Sutherland (!!!), Edgar Ramirez, Lily Rabe, Noah Jupe, and Noma Dumezweni to audiences who embraced ‘THE UNDOING’ all over the world and now to this… these Golden Globe nominations mean more than you could ever imagine. And ‘THE PROM!’ All the love to our incredibly talented director Ryan Murphy. I am simply thrilled, elated and grateful. Thank you, thank you, thank you.” —Nicole Kidman

I’m beyond thrilled the series was recognized and I feel so lucky to be in a category including such incredible women who have kept me laughing and smiling all year long. The greatest gift of playing Emily has been providing a sense of escapism and fun during a time when we all needed it most. I’m so proud of this show and so thankful to the HFPA, Netflix, Darren and the entire cast and crew without whom Emily would be truly lost. I’m also incredibly proud of my MANK family and sending them so much love as well! I’m overwhelmed with happiness. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Bisous!” –Lily Collins

Now that our tenure is over, I couldn’t have asked for a nicer retirement present.” –Helena Bonham Carter

I share this acknowledgement with our entire cast and crew, our researchers, producers and of course Peter Morgan. Truly, a family I’m honored to be a part of.” –Josh O’Connor

It was a gift given to me by Darius Marder’s daring genius, and the radical empathy of my teachers Jeremy Lee Stone, Leighton Grant, Guy Licata, Gregory Berger-Sobeck. Special thanks to all those in the Deaf community I was privileged to be guided by, as well as Paul Raci, Olivia Cooke, and all our cast and crew.

It’s so exciting to share this with David and the cast and crew of Mank.” —Amanda Seyfried

I share this recognition with James McBride, whose words continue to inspire me, and the whole cast and crew who made the series the triumph that it is.” –Ethan Hawke

“Whaaaaaat?! I am completely honoured to have been nominated today alongside such immensely talented actors, some of whom I have grown up idolising and am so grateful to have worked alongside my now dearest friend Paul Mescal. Playing Marianne was a beautiful and complex journey and she is a character who I will always treasure close to my heart, and indeed fringe!” –Daisy-Edgar Jones

“I am truly honoured to be nominated for ‘Pieces of A Woman,’ and so grateful to the HFPA for recognising the film in this way. This film has always been about the mothers and families who have lost, giving a voice to their stories, and breaking the silence around something so rarely spoken about. Thank you to Netflix for making it possible for so many to experience, and to the HFPA for supporting this story of female courage and resilience, in the face of a grief which at times, connects us all.” –Vanessa Kirby

She is one of the most talented filmmakers I’ve ever worked with.

“Despite a stressed pandemic year, there is a comfort of sorts in embracing traditions, perhaps it is a hopeful sign that we will get out of this eventually. The Golden Globes are such a sign of both tradition and normal. So, not to trivialize the current state of affairs, it remains a tremendous honor to be recognized by the Hollywood Foreign Press. I am proud to be included with my fellow artists, and incredibly proud at the recognition Mank has received across the board today.” –Gary Oldman

“Unbelievably thrilled and honored for ‘Promising Young Woman’ to be among so many incredible nominees at this year’s Golden Globes.  Thank you so much to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this amazing recognition!

It’s impossible to truly express the depth of my gratitude without swearing so I’d better stop here.” –Emerald Fennell

“On behalf of the couple of hundred people who made The Trial of the Chicago 7, we’re grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the recognition they gave us this morning, and we’re humbled to be in the company of such distinguished nominees. We thought the movie was relevant enough last winter when we were making it. We didn’t need it to get more relevant, but it did.” –Aaron Sorkin

“I am proud and thankful to be an artist this morning. I am thankful for collaboration. ‘One Night in Miami,’ ‘Hamilton,’ and ‘Music’ all represent a great deal to me on a deeply personal level. They represent the type of variety and complexity I hoped was possible when I was a younger actor. I am grateful and thankful to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for shining a light on these films today. When I consider the projects altogether, I think they also might say something about what we create as an artistic community—as a family of creators—that may be essential. Art can heal. It can fortify. It can be there for us, giving us heart and encouragement to go on, when we need it most as it has been over the past year.”  –Leslie Odom Jr.

“I’m thrilled. Just thrilled! For all of us, dear Nicole[Kidman] and Hugh [Grant]. I loved doing The Undoing with them under the eye of Susanne Bier. She was terrific and the character written by David E. Kelley was a joy to play.” –Donald Sutherland

“That Druk has made it through the eye of the needle at the Golden Globe Awards, is an enormous honor and more than we could dream of.  Thomas has made his most beautiful film to date at the most difficult time of his life, and this nomination brings joy in hearts and especially Thomas’s. We are so very grateful.” –Mads Mikkelsen

“I’m thrilled and deeply honoured to be ‘in the room’ with my fellow nominees who have done such exquisite work this year. Thank you, Ron Howard, for giving me the chance to play Mamaw, to the hair and makeup team whose artistry helped me realize her, and to Amy Adams for her fearless, heartbreaking performance.” –Glenn Close

“I am so happy the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has recognized our Small Axe family today. We had such a brilliant crew and cast across the anthology series, some highly experienced actors and craftspeople as well as a lot of exciting new talent who made it onto a set for the very first time. I’m just thrilled.” –Steve McQueen

“We’re excited and grateful to be recognised by The Hollywood Foreign Press with this morning’s Golden Globe nominations.

“Thank you to the HFPA for this amazing honor for EMILY IN PARIS. We had such a great time making this show in Paris with our amazing French crew. I also want to thank MTV Studios and Netflix for their unwavering support and separately congratulate Lily on her much deserved nomination – there is no one better.” –Darren Star

“Oh what a beautiful morning. Once again, thanks HFPA. It never gets old. Congrats to my fellow nominees and ALL my ‘Black Monday’ family. This is for (and because of) ALL of us.”  —Don Cheadle

“I’m on set in London and just heard the brilliant news. A big shout out to Jeff Daniels — the yin to my yang and the finest scene partner in any Oval Office. A big thanks to Billy Ray, James Comey and all the cast and crew…and to Showtime for airing this timely series. I’m thrilled and honored by this recognition.” –Brendan Gleeson

“I knew when Ryan Murphy asked me to play Gwendolyn that it was going to be one of the highlights of my career. I am so honored that the HFPA chose to recognize RATCHED and Sarah Paulson’s and my performances in it. I have been over the moon about the way audiences embraced ‘Midolyn’ and shared Ryan’s excitement at the idea of having two queer women play these queer characters. I share this recognition with Sarah, the rest of the incredible cast, Ryan Murphy, our crew, and Netflix.” –Cynthia Nixon

The Comey Rule wasn’t just a project. It mattered and continues to matter. In an important election year, I knew some people might have said “shut up and stay out of politics,” but the reason I couldn’t is simple: I’ve got kids and grandkids, and I wanted them to know that I was on the right side of history. In a divided country like ours, you might risk losing half an audience with these choices, but this was just too important. Thank you to the HFPA for this honor, to Showtime for their support, and to Billy Ray for his tenacity. Also to the cast – half of my performance has always been in the other actors around me, so this nomination is as much yours as it is mine.” –Jeff Daniels

“Thank you HFPA for the Golden Globe Nomination. I am very very very honored! Holy, wow — I’m excited!!!!” –Jane Levy

“I’m so grateful to be recognized again by the HFPA, and I can’t wait for awards night. Everybody knows the Golden Globes throw the best Zoom.” –Ramy Yousssef

“I’m honored that the HFPA has recognized our song ‘Tigress & Tweed’ [from ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’] with a Golden Globe nomination, as well as Andra Day’s brilliant portrayal of Billie Holiday. Her musical legacy remains vital and powerful, and co-writing the song with Andra gave me the opportunity to pay homage to Holiday’s enduring artistry. I am truly blessed to work with Day, director Lee Daniels and the team that brought this chapter of Billie’s story to the screen.”–Raphael Saadiq

“What a tremendous honor for ‘Over the Moon’ to be recognized today with a Golden Globe nomination. We truly hope the message of our film touches those who need inspiration to open themselves up to love–especially in the darkest of times. From Audrey Wells’ beautiful script to our mighty songwriting team, unforgettable acting performances from our cast, to the artistry and heart our crew poured into this film everyday…we literally lived each moment of Fei Fei’s journey as if it were our own. On behalf of the entire Over the Moon family, a huge thank you to the HFPA for this recognition!” –Glen Keane

“This 12th Golden Globe nomination leaves me speechless and grateful to all the members of the HFPA, and to Grant Heslov and George Clooney. It all comes down to George’s virtuoso direction and to his desire for me to write not only a score but a ballet, filling the silent space and conveying the unspoken emotions of the characters. It is a great honor.” –Alexandre Desplat

“Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press. It’s an honor that a film about embracing life should be embraced by you in this trying year. I am grateful to my amazing collaborators both behind and in front of the camera, especially the great Mads Mikkelsen, who with the other actors, did his very best to make me laugh, and succeeded.” –Thomas Vinterberg

“Now this is pretty cool!! THANK YOU #goldenglobes! ..and of course my amazing collaborator Celeste for helping make HEAR MY VOICE happen… AMAZING!” –Daniel Pemberton
