Stars react to their 2021 Golden Globes nominations

It took quite a few delays in the face of a global pandemic, but awards season is still happening as it usually does with the Golden Globes setting the tone for what films could lead to Oscars, and what new TV shows could be Emmy contenders.
Nominations were announced live early Wednesday by Sarah Jessica Parker and Taraji P. Henson. As they sped through the list of names, it became a big day for projects like Promising Young Woman, The Crown, and Mank. See the nominees' reactions below — we'll be updating as the day goes on — and check out the full list of nominations here.

Ozark (Best Television Series – Drama)
Chris Mundy (Showrunner)
"If the last year's taught us anything, it's how lucky we feel just to get to make the show. So, thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the extra reason to feel good. It's great to be in the company of all these amazing shows."
Laura Linney (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama)
"Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press for recognizing Ozark! What a thrill to be nominated during this locked-down, memorable, crazy, upside down, challenging year. I am so proud to be included in this amazing list of nominees. And special congratulations to Regina King!!!!"
Ratched (Best Television Series – Drama)
Sarah Paulson (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama)
"Bringing Mildred Ratched to the screen was a labor of love, and today's nominations are the cherry on top. I am thrilled for Cynthia, and am proud of our entire brilliant cast and tireless crew. Much love and gratitude to Mr. Ryan Murphy and to the HFPA for this honor."
From an additional interview with EW:
"Here I am on the morning of the Golden Globe nominations being recognized for my work at 46 years old. It feels like, for the fourth time now from the HFPA, it's an enormous honor. I don't ever want to lose that part of me that thinks this is a very lucky, rarefied air to be breathing and to really just hold onto my gratitude about it because I have so many extraordinarily talented friends who do not get to make a living doing what they love and the fact that I get to, this always has to just be frosting on a very, very delicious cake."
Cynthia Nixon (Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television)
"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."
The Crown (Best Television Series – Drama)
Peter Morgan (Creator)
"All of us on The Crown are thrilled to be recognised in this way by the HFPA. This season really seems to have resonated with audiences of all generations all around the world, and we could not be more grateful or more proud."
Josh O'Connor (Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama)
"Mind blown. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press! What an honor to be recognized by this group, and among these incredible artists. I share this acknowledgment 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."
Emma Corrin (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Drama)
"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. It has been a privilege to be part of The Crown family and to portray our version of Diana... "Well, You Know, By Being A Mad Tree."
Gillian Anderson (Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television)
"I am so thankful to the HFPA for this nomination and for recognising me alongside these extraordinary women, and also to the fans of The Crown for supporting us this season. It was an honour to be a part of it. I owe a lot to Cate Hall and Amy Roberts for their collaboration, vision and genius in making our Thatcher come to life."
    My happy face for my @goldenglobes nomination! Proud to be alongside such talented women #JuliaGarner, @annefrances @CynthiaNixon & #HelenaBonhamCarter.
    And congrats to @TheCrownNetflix for all your other well deserved nominations! 🎉 pic.twitter.com/YobqFkti4K

Helena Bonham Carter (Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television)
"It's a pleasure for me to be included in the Golden Globes this morning but it's particularly gratifying to see so many of my co-stars nominated as well, including the show itself. It's been a great and happiest of jobs and I hope we have provided some diversion in this bonkers time. I miss my fake Royal family. Now that our tenure is over, I couldn't have asked for a nicer retirement present."
Better Call Saul
Bob Odenkirk (Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama)
"I'm knocked out! I spent two weeks in the desert for one episode and I'm still rehydrating! Our fifth season was the best yet. Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press!"
Emily in Paris (Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy)
Darren Star (Creator/Showrunner)
"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."
Lily Collins (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy)
"Words cannot express how extremely grateful and excited I am to be nominated for my role in Emily in Paris and for the show's nomination! 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!"
    So honored to be nominated for a #GoldenGlobe! I’m beaming for my #EmilyinParis family (my first project as a producer!).... What a wild morning! Ecstatic and grateful doesn’t even begin to cut it... pic.twitter.com/SLmDr6JQXZ

"What a way to wake up! We are so proud of the entire cast & crew of Schitt's Creek, and we are thrilled to celebrate the end of this series with the show's first Golden Globe nominations. Thank you to the HFPA!"

Ted Lasso (Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy)
Bill Lawrence (Co-Creator)
From an interview with EW:
"This kind of stuff is always fun. I'm just so happy for Jason, because he's kind of a voice and leader of the show. And I'm sure those guys can all use a pick me up."
The Flight Attendant (Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy)
Steve Yockey (Creator)
"Thanks so much to the HFPA for recognizing our show and Kaley's incredible performance. I'm overwhelmed by the response. It's honestly a little surreal. And it's a credit to everyone involved who worked like mad to bring The Flight Attendant to life, especially our cast and crew who delivered during this pandemic under the wildest conditions."
Kaley Cuoco (Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy)
"OMG! My heart is still pounding and the tears won't stop flowing! Thank you HFPA for these incredible nominations. This is truly the highlight of my entire career and I couldn't be more excited and proud to share this recognition with the most incredible cast and crew. This feels like a dream!"
