Thank you to each and every member of the Hollywood Foreign Press for this amazing honour.

And to David, the writers, producers, cast and crew of “The Good Doctor” – thank you all, and I can’t wait to spend the day celebrating with (most of!) you on set today.”

Shawn Levy (Executive Producer, Stranger Things): “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 are so grateful for the reception of STRANGER THINGS 2 and the recognition of the HFPA with this second Golden globe nomination.”

Claire Foy (Actress, The Crown): “It is such an honour to receive this nomination today! Thank you so much to the HFPA for their continued support of The Crown.

Katherine Langford (Actress, 13 Reasons Why): “Words cannot express my sheer excitement and gratitude for being nominated by the HFPA this morning for portraying ‘Hannah Baker,’ a young woman whom I have come to truly love and understand. 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. I’m forever grateful to have been given this opportunity and will continue to work hard to bring dignity, respect and grace to such a powerful character.”

Dan Fogelman (Creator & Executive Producer, This Is Us):“It’s a good day when you wake up and find out that your show is on a list with Game of Thrones. Thanks to the HFPA for recognizing us again – I am very happy for Chrissy and Sterling, and extremely proud of our entire cast and crew. Speaking for all of us: we’re just happy to be in the conversation, and will remain that way as long as we get to meet Jon Snow.”

Alison Brie (Actress, GLOW): “I am so honored and proud to be nominated by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. GLOW has been such a labor of love and I’m very excited that THE DISASTER ARTIST and THE POST also got recognized this morning.:
