Marion Cotillard
“Today makes for a really great day. The Hollywood Foreign Press, who reach so many readers across the globe, have greatly recognized French cinema this year, with the inclusion of nominations for “Rust and Bone.” Working with Jacques Audiard was an extraordinary experience, and the journey of the characters he creates and cinematically guides, is a special thing — as an actor and a moviegoer. This nomination is truly unique for me, because I also share it with Rachel Weisz, Jessica Chastain, Helen Mirren and Naomi Watts, women who I respect as people and as talents who provide great inspiration to other actresses.”

“Awards — it’s not something I really think about when I’m working — but I’m excited about it. I’m so proud to be a part of ‘The Master’ — it came out a while ago and this brings people back to it.”

“I’m so incredibly thankful to the Hollywood Foreign Press for recognizing our little movie that could. Ewan and the entire cast and crew could not be more deserving of this honor, and I’m thrilled that I’m able to share this moment among such a fantastic group of nominees.”

Jennifer Lawrence
“Thirty minutes before my alarm was supposed to go off, my agent called. I got all panicky. Why would he be calling at this hour? Did the set burn down? Did somebody die? I was too tired to care and pick up, but then I just lay there wondering, ‘Maybe somebody did die.’ Then I looked at my phone and had 25 text messages and remembered.
“At this point, [writer-director] David [O. Russell], Bradley [Cooper] and I love each other enough not to text each other.”

Helen Hunt
“I’m going to movies every day and it’s a beautiful year for performances -- it’s very exciting to stand among them [my fellow nominees]. I’ve been knocked out by this year’s performances -- beautiful movies about real people -- rather than movies about spiders! I find it really refreshing; I relate more.”

“What an amazing and unexpected present! 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. Writing music for ‘The Hunger Games was a labor of love. I was a fan of the stories and the characters, and we all wanted the music to have an authenticity that matched the tone of the movie and the emotions expressed in the book. This is a huge honor, and I’m really excited and so flattered. THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association!”
