Roll out the red carpet—awards season has officially begun!
The nominations for the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced this morning, and the stars are already sounding off, thanking the voting committee and their fans for the support and recognition.
From heartwarming to quirky to absolutely ecstatic, the celebs always have lots to say on SAG day, so let's take a look at what stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard, Alec Baldwin and more are saying!
Anne Hathaway, Les Misérables: "What an honor and a thrill to get love from my fellow actors. I couldn't feel happier or prouder to be in this cast- special congratulations to Hugh! Vive Les Mis! and all the SAG nominees!"
Jennifer Lawrence, Silver Linings Playbook: "It's so rewarding to have fellow actors recognize my work with this nomination, and to be included in the company of the talented women nominated this year. Finding a great female character to portray is a very fulfilling experience, and I had that with Silver Linings Playbook, and in working David O. Russell and Bradley Cooper. So I guess all that terrible dancing was worth it?"
Helen Mirren, Hitchcock: "I am very honored to be nominated with my fellow rogues and vagabonds."
Naomi Watts, The Impossible: "I could not be more excited. The recognition from your peers is beyond valuable. I'm truly thrilled. It's an honor to be a part of Maria Belon's story and of course the countless others whose lives were so profoundly affected by the tsunami."
Marion Cotillard, Rust and Bone: "Thank you so much to the Screen Actors Guild; it's an enormous honor as an actor to be recognized by your peers. I'm thrilled to share this nomination with the incredible Jacques Audiard and Matthias Schoenaerts and the entire Rust and Bone team, and especially Tom Bernard and Michael Barker at Sony Pictures Classics for bringing the film to U.S. audiences."
Sigourney Weaver Political Animals: "Thank you fellow SAG members. It means so much to me to be recognized by my peers. Political Animals was very dear to my heart and it's a great honor to receive this kind of recognition."
Ty Burrell, Modern Family: "Thank you to the Screen Actors Guild for this nomination and for recognizing Modern Family for the ensemble award. I'm so lucky to work with such great material thanks to our incredible creators Christopher Lloyd and Steven Levitan and our entire writing staff. This is an honor I obviously share with my fellow cast mates who make coming to work a dream. Actually, working with any regularity on anything was always my dream so getting to be on this show, and being nominated for a SAG award, is a daydream wrapped in a rainbow delivered on a cloud pillow by a gentle Yeti."
Alec Baldwin 30 Rock: "Of course, I am deeply flattered to be nominated for another season of 30 Rock."
Julianne Moore, Game Change: "Wow - I am so thrilled this morning! To be acknowledged by your peers is the ultimate compliment, and I am so happy to be sharing this thrill with Woody [Harrelson] and Ed [Harris]."
Ben Affleck, Argo: "I am thrilled and grateful that Argo was nominated for Best Ensemble. On behalf of the more than 120 actors in Argo with speaking roles and the thousands of extras, I want to thank the Screen Actors Guild. I'm also thrilled that SAG has nominated the brilliant Alan Arkin, he is truly one of our great actors. As a SAG member for the last twenty-five years I know first hand the commitment, artistry and dedication universal to my fellow actors. Each actor in Argo made an important contribution in bringing the real life story of these unsung heroes to the screen. We are humbled by this honor from the Screen Actors Guild."
Betty White, Hot in Cleveland: "This nomination, which is much appreciated, is for all four of us at Hot in Cleveland, not just me."
Javier Bardem, Skyfall: "It is a real honor to be recognized by my peers for what was a truly wonderful working experience - Sam Mendes created such a great environment, and is a master at his craft. It's been an enormous privilege and lesson being able to work with such amazing fellow actors as Daniel Craig and Judi Dench, along with the wonderful cast of Skyfall. Barbara Broccoli and Michael J. Wilson have been the leaders of this team, always supporting Sam and all of us on set. Skyfall was as fun to make as it is to watch. I truly thank to my fellow actors for recognizing my participation in such a fantastic movie."
