Thursday was a good day for some celebrities in Hollywood.
With the announcement of the Golden Globe nominations, some stars spoke with CNN about their reaction to the kudos from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
Here's what a few of the stars had to say:
Seth Rogen, whose film "50/50" was nominated for best motion picture, musical or comedy
Jonah Hill, nominated for best supporting actor in a motion picture for "Moneyball"
Octavia Spencer, nominated for best supporting actress in a motion picture for "The Help"
Kenneth Branagh, nominated for best supporting actor in a motion picture for "My Week With Marilyn"
Judd Apatow, director of "Bridesmaids" which was nominated for best motion picture, musical or comedy
"I—you know I was just excited to make a movie with Kristen [Wiig]. We didn’t even think about what type of movie it was or what it meant. I just thought, Kristen Wiig is one of the funniest woman I have ever seen, and then it evolved into this thing that seemed to have more meaning for people. But you know, at its core, it was just, what should we do for her?"
