It's an honor just to be nominated, but everyone wants to win!
The stars nominated for Golden Globe awards on Thursday were grateful across the board. Angelina Jolie, whose directorial debut In the Land of Blood and Honey was nominated for Best Foreign Language Film, was quick to share the credit with everyone involved.
"I am grateful that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association is honoring our film," the 36-year-old actress turned writer-director said in a statement. "This was a true collaboration, and I am forever indebted to our cast and crew, who experienced their own personal tragedies in the Bosnian War and gave me an authentic perspective into the conflict. This nomination is a tribute to the collective talent and passion of this extraordinary cast."
Seth Rogen, producer and star of 50/50, was asleep at his home in L.A. when the nominations were announced. "The fact that any of us are getting nominated for anything is ridiculous," he told the Hollywood Reporter. (50/50 is nominated for Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical; the film's other star, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, is nominated for Best Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical.) "I hope it makes people who were afraid to see the movie realize that it is in fact a comedy."
Meryl Streep, who is nominated for best actress in a drama, motion picture, for her role in The Iron Lady, told the Hollywood Reporter she is "thrilled to be included in this beautiful group of actors and actresses."
Martin Scorcese, who is up for best director, motion picture for Hugo, told the Hollywood Reporter making the film was "an extraordinary experience" for him. "It allowed me to make a child's adventure, the type of picture that I loved when I was young."
