“It’s always too early to say ‘Bazinga!’ no matter what time of day it is,” Emmy winner Jim Parsons said in regards to his Golden Globe nod for best comedy actor on television. This is The Big Bang Theory actor’s first Golden Globe nomination. It wasn’t his best actor nomination that made him the most thrilled, however, it was something more simple than that. “I’m really floored, and we all get to sit at that table together now. I won’t be sitting next to a stranger!”
Rabbit Hole actress and Hollywood veteran, Nicole Kidman, kept it classy and humble while thanking the Hollywood Foreign Press for her nomination of best actress in a drama. “It took more than four years to get our little movie off the ground, and to be recognized for my work in a film that means so much to me is truly such an honor. Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press for your continued support.”
Michael Douglas has had a challenging year personally, fighting his battle with throat cancer, but that didn’t stop him from doing what he does best — acting! The Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps actor was ready to just be happy and revel in his big screen nomination for best supporting actor in a drama. “To be selected with these extraordinary nominees is an honor and boy was I ready for some good news!”
