Happy Golden Globes Monday!

The Hollywood Foreign Press Association unveiled the official nominees for the 2018 Golden Globes this morning, with Big Little Lies leading the pack in the television categories with six nominations total.

Shawn Levy, executive producer of Stranger Things, nominated for Best Television Series – Drama:

“While all of us working on STRANGER THINGS were grateful for the success of our first season, we were also vigilantly determined not to rest on that. We wanted to make a second season that would feel authentic to our show and characters, but strive further in cinematic scope, emotion and depth. We are so grateful for the reception of STRANGER THINGS 2 and the recognition of the HFPA with this second Golden globe nomination.”

Noah Schnapp of Stranger Things, nominated for Best Television Series – Drama:

Nicole Kidman of Big Little Lies, nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television:

“We are all aware of how rare it is for a show and it’s cast to be honored in such a huge way, and we are all incredibly grateful. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for giving the show so much love. It was made with love, guided by the incredible David E. Kelley and Jean-Marc Vallée as well as my partners in passion Reese Witherspoon, Per Saari and Bruna Papandrea. The character Celeste is so precious to me and the recognition is deeply appreciated.”

Jessica Lange of Feud: Bette and Joan, nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television:

“It was wonderful to find out about the Golden Globe nomination this morning. It was truly great to work with the brilliant Ryan Murphy to tell the story of Joan and Bette.  It was an honor to embody the legendary Joan Crawford. Even though it’s a period piece, their stories and the issues that they faced are as relevant today as they were at the time. Congratulations to everyone who worked on the show and all the other nominees.”

David Harbour of Stranger Things, nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television:

“Thank you HFPA for the great honor of being nominated for a supporting TV actor Golden Globe award this year, and for nominating Stranger Things in the best TV drama category as well. It’s gratifying to be seen for my work and to be in a category with such esteemed colleagues. The work I do on ST has been the most satisfying of my career, due to the brilliance of all departments but of course most especially the writing and directing of the Duffer Brothers and the directing and producing of Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen and the generous license to play that Netflix gives us. My co-stars are all so inspired and inspiring to work with on a daily basis, and I surely wouldn’t be nominated without the special chemistry I had this past season with Millie, Winona, Finn, Noah, Sean, Paul and all the rest. Their work makes me shine. They make it easy for David and Hopper to look good.”

Hannah’s story resonated with so many people, and I feel truly grateful to Netflix, Paramount TV, Brian Yorkey, Tom McCarthy, Selena Gomez, and all of our tremendous producers…and to our incredibly talented cast – who are also my dear friends, and our wonderful crew for bringing this story to life. Most of all, my sincere hope is that the recognition continues to shine a light on so many of the important life issues and struggles we portray in 13 Reasons Why.

“Aziz and I and the whole team behind the show are thrilled and honored by the nomination. We’re especially excited to eat dinner in a big ballroom with some of our heroes, like Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep, and the fish man from “Shape of Water.” Very curious to see which entree he’ll order, the chicken or the steak. Pretty sure it won’t be fish, because that would be weird. We’d also like to thank Netflix, Universal, and of course the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the recognition!”
