— "It's a good day when you wake up and find out that your show is on a list with 'Game of Thrones.'" — Dan Fogelman, creator of "This Is Us," nominated for TV drama series.
— "I'm descending into nonsensical happy words because I am not, I can't believe it, it's just amazing. It's just amazing." — Greta Gerwig, nominated for writing "Lady Bird," which she also directed.

— "This is a Chanukah miracle." - Pamela Adlon, up for actress in a TV comedy series for "Better Things."
— "We are, in a few hours, we are about to have our London premiere of 'Darkest Hour.' Tonight. So this is sort of a bit of frosting on the cake." — Gary Oldman, nominated for actor in a drama film for his portrayal of Winston Churchill.
— "Issa Rae is a hero of mine. I'm going to try not to stalk her at the Globes. I nearly died when I heard my name and hers in the same sentence. I'm dweebing out pretty hard." — Rachel Brosnahan of "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," nominated alongside Rae for actress in a TV comedy series.

— "This is good news for Albert Einstein." — Geoffrey Rush, nominated for playing the scientist in "Genius."

— " I guess what I was really trying to do in retrospect is have a conversation about what it's like to be a woman in the world, and do it while playing a sex worker." — Maggie Gyllenhaal, nominated for her performance in the TV drama "The Deuce."

— "My morning plans are to do a little bit of chores around the house." — Guillermo del Toro, writer and director of Monday's top nominee, "The Shape of Water," on how he'll celebrate.
— "Today is my father's birthday, and my father has been dead for many years, but he was a huge supporter of me being an actor. I don't think he was crazy about it at the beginning. But it's really, really fabulous to have this happen on his birthday." — Richard Jenkins, a supporting actor nominee for "The Shape of Water."
