Any planned weekend fetes are getting started early for some of Hollywood's major players as we cap off a week of nominations.
Over the past two days, films like "Lincoln," "Silver Linings Playbook," "Argo" and "Les Misérables" have reveled in nods while TV shows like "Homeland," "Downton Abbey," "Modern Family" and "Breaking Bad" have reaffirmed their status as critical favorites.
All of the recognition has left Jennifer Lawrence, a darling of critics and everyday fans alike, a little stunned. The 22-year-old actress has earned both a SAG and a Golden Globe nod for her work in David O. Russell's "Silver Linings Playbook," which is also up for the best comedic motion picture Golden Globe.
“It’s unbelievable. It’s crazy. I’ve really not had time to kind of stop and really think about it," Lawrence told CNN. "It just kind of feels like I walked into a job and it suddenly just keeps going up. It’s weird because you never get use to it. It’s easier not to think about it in kind of a weird way. You just go on with your day and try not to let it overwhelm you too much.”
Emmy-winner Damian Lewis, who entered both the SAG and Golden Globe race for best drama series actor this week, is planning to do that with a nice drink.
"Just so happy to have a really good reason to stop Christmas shopping for a day," Lewis said in a statement. "Opening a bottle immediately to celebrate my Golden Globe nomination for 'Homeland.'"
Lewis, who plays the dangerous and duplicitous POW and politician Nicholas Brody on the smash Showtime series, added that he's "thrilled" for his co-stars Claire Danes, who earned both a SAG and a Golden Globe nod, and Mandy Patinkin, who picked up a Globe nomination in the best supporting actor in a series, miniseries or motion picture made for TV category.
For his part, Patinkin said that "working on 'Homeland' has been one of the joys of my life. We have such gifted writers - I have to pinch myself every day that I get to be a part of this company." But, there's still a little something special he's waiting for before really cutting loose: the arrival of Danes' baby.
"When I get that call," Patinkin said, "the fireworks will really start.”
Both Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Don Cheadle, who are nominated in the lead acting on a TV comedy categories, tried to contain their excitement - but neither quite made it.
"The reason that I do this job is to serve, not to receive accolades and trophies," "Veep" actress Louis-Dreyfus began in her statement. "That said, I'm freakin' stoked. God bless America and the Hollywood Foreign Press, specifically."
"House of Lies" star Cheadle, meanwhile, is "over the moon for the nom. This is a great show and a great cast and this is a recognition of all of us... But mostly me."
