The Associated Press Published:

Celebrity reactions to the 71st annual Golden Globe nominations, announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif. The awards will be given Jan. 12.

--"I haven't called anyone. I'm too overwhelmed! I've done a dance of joy in my hotel room. All of these nominations hopefully mean that more people will go and see it, and that is really exciting because I feel this film is pivotal and just so good for the world." -- Lupita Nyong'o, nominated for best-supporting actress in a film for "12 Years a Slave." She listened to the announcement over the radio in Paris.

--"I'm thrilled and so grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press. One question: Does this mean I need two dresses?" -- Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who received two nominations for her roles in the TV series "Veep" and the movie "Enough Said."

--"I feel great. I think it's wonderful that a little film like this has an opportunity, has a light shone in its direction." -- Jared Leto, nominated for best-supporting actor in the film "Dallas Buyers Club."

--"Joel and Ethan (Coen) have completely changed my life. There's a reason why (this) happens to so many actors who are involved in their movies because they create a stage for people to do their absolute best work. Not only the actors themselves, but everyone involved" -- Oscar Isaac, nominated for best actor in a musical or comedy film for "Inside Llewyn Davis."

--"When the phone rang this morning, I silenced it and I thought, 'Ugh, who do I owe money to?'" -- Greta Gerwig, nominated for best actress in a musical or comedy film for her role in "Frances Ha."

--"This was a one-of-a-kind shooting for all us. You don't read scripts written that honest. We all had a good time. It was so relaxed. We really knew this was something special. I have done things onstage that have brought attention to my work, but this is as exciting as could be" -- June Squibb, nominated for best-supporting actress in a film for "Nebraska."

--"To get a film out there which is received the way it is, is really exceptional. This on top of that is an extraordinary addition to that. I think I'm just excited about that really, and not thinking about too much else." -- Chiwetel Ejiofor, nominated for best actor in a drama for "12 Years a Slave," on whether he's thinking about bigger nominations.
