Steve Yockey (creator), The Flight Attendant, Best Television Series — Musical or Comedy (To TV Insider)

“It’s a little surreal. I put my phone on Do Not Disturb. I woke up and did all my morning stuff before I even looked. We’re happy with the show either way, but it’s so weird to be in the conversation. It’s still sinking in. I haven’t really had a big reaction yet other than shock because we thought we were making this dark, funny, little thing that would find its audience but just be a show. The response to it has been so overwhelming and so positive.

It’s different than anything on TV right now and we took a lot of chances in terms of tone and style. It’s nice to see people recognizing that and obviously Kaley [Cuoco]’s performance and being able to carry all the comedy and then swing to those darker moments, I’m really thrilled people are recognizing what she did because it’s really impressive.” (Cuoco was nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy)

Emma Corrin, The Crown, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Drama

“Thank you thank you! I am truly honoured to be named amongst a group of such talented and inspirational women! Working on The Crown was the most magical experience in no small part thanks to the incredible cast and crew that supported and helped guide me through, including my wonderful friend, Josh O’Connor who has so deservingly been recognised today as well. It has been a privilege to be part of The Crown family and to portray our version of Diana… “Well, You Know, By Being A Mad Tree.””

Laura Linney, Ozark, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Drama

“Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press for recognizing Ozark! What a thrill to be nominated during this locked-down, memorable, crazy, upside down, challenging year. I am so proud to be included in this amazing list of nominees. And special congratulations to Regina King!!!!”

Sarah Paulson, Ratched, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Drama

“Bringing Mildred Ratched to the screen was a labor of love, and today’s nominations are the cherry on top. I am thrilled for Cynthia, and am proud of our entire brilliant cast and tireless crew. Much love and gratitude to Mr. Ryan Murphy and to the HFPA for this honor.”

Kaley Cuoco, The Flight Attendant, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy

“OMG! My heart is still pounding and the tears won’t stop flowing! Thank you HFPA for these incredible nominations. This is truly the highlight of my entire career and I couldn’t be more excited and proud to share this recognition with the most incredible cast and crew. This feels like a dream!”

Lily Collins, Emily in Paris, Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy

“Words cannot express how extremely grateful and excited I am to be nominated for my role in Emily in Paris and for the show’s nomination! I’m beyond thrilled the series was recognized and I feel so lucky to be in a category including such incredible women who have kept me laughing and smiling all year long. The greatest gift of playing Emily has been providing a sense of escapism and fun during a time when we all needed it most. I’m so proud of this show and so thankful to the HFPA, Netflix, Darren and the entire cast and crew without whom Emily would be truly lost. I’m also incredibly proud of my MANK family and sending them so much love as well! I’m overwhelmed with happiness. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart. Bisous!”

Don Cheadle, Black Monday, Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy

“Oh what a beautiful morning. Once again, thanks HFPA. It never gets old. Congrats to my fellow nominees and ALL my ‘Black Monday’ family. This is for (and because of) ALL of us.”

Eugene Levy, Schitt’s Creek, Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series — Musical or Comedy

Ethan Hawke, The Good Lord Bird, Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television

“Thank you to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for this honor. From its inception, The Good Lord Bird was a passion project for everyone involved and I am so proud of the final product. I’m thrilled to be nominated alongside all the incredible talent in this category. I share this recognition with James McBride, whose words continue to inspire me, and the whole cast and crew who made the series the triumph that it is.”

Jeff Daniels, The Comey Rule, Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television

The Comey Rule wasn’t just a project. It mattered and continues to matter. In an important election year, I knew some people might have said “shut up and stay out of politics,” but the reason I couldn’t is simple: I’ve got kids and grandkids, and I wanted them to know that I was on the right side of history. In a divided country like ours, you might risk losing half an audience with these choices, but this was just too important. Thank you to the HFPA for this honor, to Showtime for their support, and to Billy Ray for his tenacity. Also to the cast – half of my performance has always been in the other actors around me, so this nomination is as much yours as it is mine.”

Mark Ruffalo, I Know This Much Is True, Best Performance by an Actor in a Limited Series, Anthology Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television

Anya Tayl0r-Joy, The Queen’s Gambit, Best Performance by an Actress in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

“I am so thankful to the HFPA for this nomination and for recognising me alongside these extraordinary women, and also to the fans of The Crown for supporting us this season. It was an honour to be a part of it. I owe a lot to Cate Hall and Amy Roberts for their collaboration, vision and genius in making our Thatcher come to life.”

Helena Bonham Carter, The Crown, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

“It’s a pleasure for me to be included in the Golden Globes this morning but it’s particularly gratifying to see so many of my co-stars nominated as well, including the show itself. It’s been a great and happiest of jobs and I hope we have provided some diversion in this bonkers time. I miss my fake Royal family. Now that our tenure is over, I couldn’t have asked for a nicer retirement present.”

Cynthia Nixon, Ratched, Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television

“I knew when Ryan Murphy asked me to play Gwendolyn that it was going to be one of the highlights of my career. I am so honored that the HFPA chose to recognize Ratched and Sarah Paulson’s and my performances in it. I have been over the moon about the way audiences embraced “Midolyn” and shared Ryan’s excitement at the idea of having two queer women play these queer characters. I share this recognition with Sarah, the rest of the incredible cast, Ryan Murphy, our crew, and Netflix.”

Daniel Levy, Schitt’s Creek, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series, Limited Series or Motion Picture Made for Television
