“Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this recognition. We are so humbled and honored that our show has struck a chord with audiences around the world. We are constantly inspired by the tireless, phenomenal work of our cast and crew, and we are particularly excited for Winona, who created an indelible performance that viewers won’t soon forget.” — Stranger Things creators and executive producers The Duffer Brothers and executive producers Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen 

“Huge thanks to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association and the Russian hackers that made our nominations possible.” – Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Veep

“The Globes always lead the industry in recognizing the new, the subversive, the wild frontrunners. What an honor it was for me to wake up and see that TRANSPARENT continues to be part an important and lauded part of our culture. How thrilling, also that Jeffrey Tambor’s marvelous and gorgeous portrayal of Maura Pfefferman is getting love. In this post-Trump America, intersectional voices are the future of the taking our power against patriarchy. I am especially so excited to see Issa Rae and Donald Glover nominated for how they are reinventing artistic protagonism as artists and actors. This morning I’m on the set on a mountainside with the I LOVE DICK cast and crew in Marfa, Texas and we’re celebrating for Amazon and Topple. Artmaking — and the revolutionary power of art as a method of political explosiveness — are my rallying cry and my current reason to live these days. This morning puts so much more gasoline in my engine.” – Jill Soloway, Transparent

“The single drama which celebrates great writing and great performances is an endangered species. The Dresser’s nomination is a tribute to the HFPA’s support for this important and beloved form. This nomination is a testament to Ronald Harwood’s brilliant writing, Richard Eyre¹s glorious direction and a masterclass in acting by Anthony Hopkins and Ian McKellen, along with all the support we received from Starz and the BBC.” – Executive producers Colin Callender from Playground and Sonia Friedman from Sonia Friedman Productions, The Dresser

“It’s nice to be invited to the party, thank you HFPA. I am especially pleased to share it with my acting partner Riz Ahmed. And of course, our indomitable leader Steve Zaillian and Richard Price.” – John Turturro, The Night Of

“I am so excited and proud that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association has recognized our show, The Night Manager, as well as the outstanding actors Tom Hiddleston, Olivia Colman and Hugh Laurie, and the genius behind it all, John LeCarre. I am incredibly happy by this tremendous honor.” – Susanne Bier, Executive Producer and Director of The Night Manager

“I am thrilled with the nominations for The Crown. Delighted of course for Claire and John, but this was a massive team effort, and the Best Drama – Television nomination really reflects that. I am proud of everyone involved. Thank you so much to the HFPA.” – ​Peter Morgan, writer/producer of The Crown

“I am so delighted by the nominations The Crown has received today! The whole experience has been wonderful. I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to bring Peter Morgan’s Princess Elizabeth to life; she is a gift of a role and a challenge I am so grateful for – a young woman trying to navigate a path through an extraordinary situation. I must thank the HFPA for this nomination, it’s such an honour. More than anything I am so happy that people have enjoyed the show the way they have and recognised the hard work of the truly brilliant ensemble cast and crew. I would also like to congratulate John and everyone on The Crown for their nominations today.” – Claire Foy, The Crown

“What a great morning for everyone who worked so hard on THE PEOPLE V. OJ! Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press for the recognition, and congratulations to my incredible producing partners and amazing actors. This project is easily one of the most satisfying of my professional life. I am feeling very blessed and appreciative today.” – Ryan Murphy, The People v. O.J. Simpson

“I’m very grateful to the HFPA for recognizing Black-ish and also mine and Anthony’s work on the show, in a year of such incredible work. So many of the projects that I love in film and television were acknowledged, and I’m honored to be a part of this great class of nominees. I’m thrilled to be included in a category of talented women of all different ages and races, each telling such different stories. As an actress, I’ve dreamt of being at the Golden Globes since I can remember – it seems like the best party of the year. I’m 44 years old, third series in. This is a thrilling moment, and I couldn’t be prouder that it’s because of Black-ish.” – Tracee Ellis Ross, Black-ish
