Our Favorite Stars React to Their Golden Globe Nominations!

The 72nd Golden Globe Nominations were finally announced this morning, with some pretty obvious choices (ahem, Benedict Cumberbatch) and we can't wait to see how it all shakes down on January 11—especially since Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are returning to host. Considering it's a pretty big deal to even be nominated, we always love hearing the stars' reactions to the news, and luckily we've got some good ones this year, from the dashing Eddie Redmayne and the incredibly talented Helen Mirren to the always hilarious Ricky Gervais. If you want to see the full list, because there are a lot of categories that span film and television, head over to the Golden Globes to check them out.
