Director Spike Lee: “I found out about these Golden Globe Nominations for BlackKklansman in between advising my NYU Grad School students because I teach on Thursdays. The first word that came to mind was âBOOM SHAKALAKA.â Thank you to the HFPA!”
Actor John David Washington: “Thank you, Hollywood Foreign Press Association, for this incredible honor and for your support of BlacKkKlansman. My deepest appreciation to the legendary Spike Lee — we stand on your shoulders, sir. Thank you to the most talented group of actors and the crew, and to Focus Features for their unwavering support. Most importantly — Ron Stallworth, you’re a hero. Thank you for allowing me to tell your story on screen. This is a surreal moment, wow. Thank you.”
What a morning to have had my phone on Do Not Disturb Mode till now… I’m ecstatic but also in shock! Thank you @goldenglobes !!!
— Constance Wu (@ConstanceWu) December 6, 2018 Growing up I always loved watching the @goldenglobes with family & friends, so just to be in the room is a thrill- but to be nominated is insane. What an honor to be included with such wonderful actors. Wow. Thank you, #HFPA . Congrats to @MrRPMurphy & cast and crew of @ACSFX !
— Darren Criss (@DarrenCriss) December 6, 2018 Actress Patricia Clarkson: “What a thrill and an honor to be nominated alongside phenomenal actresses. Today was a triumph for Sharp Objects. Working on this limited series was a remarkable process and Iâm grateful to have been a part of it.”
Producer-writer-director Janet Mock: “POSE has given those rarely reflected access to a mirror to see themselves more clearly. A cast and crew of unknown trans and gay actors have been given a chance to tell their own stories, as their own heroes. I am most overjoyed by this recognition of our show and the talents of our leading man Billy Porter because it has the potential to bring more people to POSE, convincing those who may not believe a family drama like ours is for them. Trust me, it is.”
We are going to the #GoldenGlobes , honey!!! I am overjoyed that a show led by mostly unknowns, a cast that is trans and gay, black and brown, where WE are our own HEROES, is nominated for best drama series AND best actor for @theebillyporter ! #PoseFX is Golden Globe-nominated! pic.twitter.com/jYvwEo1uY0

Actor Antonio Banderas: “Thanks to the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press for this recognition that I share with the phenomenal team of great professionals that National Geographic put together to create this complicated, controversial and amazing Genius. I would love also to mention my home town of Málaga, birth place of Picasso too, for its continual effort to become a referential city of culture.”
