Jennifer Lawrence (Silver Linings Playbook, Best Actress Musical/Comedy)
"I had no idea [the Golden Globes nominations were Thursday]. My agent called me at 5:30 and I thought the set of my movie had burned down, or Josh [Hutcherson] had died or something. I didn't realize! I was so tired! It's amazing. It was such an incredible part. All the blood, sweat and tears that everybody put in this movie, and how much it meant to everyone, we can all share it together. David and Bradley got the recognition they deserve. It's wonderful to be able to share it with everyone."
Wes Anderson (Moonrise Kingdom, Best Picture)
"I received this news by text message on the fast train to Berlin. The Hollywood Foreign Press has brightened a bleak snowy day in Germany for me. I could not be more pleased on behalf of our gang."
Ben Affleck (Argo, Best Director)
"I want to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for honoring 'Argo' with five nominations,' Affleck said in a statement. 'These nominations reflect the courage and determination of real life heroes in the US, Canada, Iran and across the globe."
Rachel Weisz (The Deep Blue Sea, Best Actress in a Drama)
"I am deeply grateful for this nomination, and in particular, for the HFPA's recognition of the hard work and passion that Terence Davies brought to this wonderful British indie. I am thrilled that this nomination might allow his beautiful work to reach a larger audience."
Hayden Panettiere (Nashville, Best Supporting Actress, Series)
"I am so shocked and thankful to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this nomination. Callie Khouri created such an amazing and juicy character in Juliette Barnes making her so much fun to play. This show is a dream to work on with this incredible cast. It's such an honor."
Nicole Kidman (The Paperboy, Best Actress Supporting Role)
"As an actor you look for roles that are rich, complicated, and that stretch you and this year I was blessed to find two,' she said in a statement. 'To have the chance to play them was a gift in itself and to then be acknowledged this way is icing on the cake. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press!"
Taylor Swift (song "Safe and Sound" featured in Hunger Games, Best Original Score)
"What an amazing and unexpected present!' Swift said in a statement. 'I'm blown away by my first-ever Golden Globe nomination, and so honored to be nominated with T Bone Burnett and The Civil Wars."
Steven Spielberg (director of Lincoln, which is nominated 7 times)
"Seven has never been a more lucky number than it is for me today. I was delighted to hear that the HFPA has chosen to recognize Daniel, Sally, Tommy, Tony Kushner, John Williams, Kathy Kennedy and me so generously. Bringing 'Lincoln' to the screen has been the opportunity of a lifetime and a distinct privilege... That's one reason why it's especially meaningful for me that the Hollywood Foreign Press has honored us with these nominations."
Daniel Day Lewis (Lincoln, Best Actor in a Drama)
"I'm very grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for so generously acknowledging us in a year of such powerful films and performances."

Are you happy with the nominations? Do you think anyone was snubbed? I was most surprised by the Ewan/Emily Blunt/Salmon nominations that came from nowhere. I'm of the majority who thinks SLP was overrated as a film and for JLaw's performance. BCoop stole the show.
