After the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced the nominees for the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, the stars expressed their excitement over seeing their name on the list.

Emma Stone, for instance, thanked the H.F.P.A. for her Best Actress in a Motion Picture nomination for her work in the film Battle of the Sexes.

"Thank you to the HFPA for this honor and thank you beyond measure to the one and only Billie Jean King," she stated. "She is a brilliant, brave and game changing human being and I wish to be half the woman she is someday. I share this with the whole cast and crew of BATTLE OF THE SEXES, a film I feel very lucky to have been a part of."

Meryl Streep also released the following statement after receiving a nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture in the Drama category for The Post:

"I'm thrilled for the movie, for Steven and Tom, and for the incredible ensemble of actors who made this movie need its moment in history. Thanks HFPA."

However, these weren't the only celebrities excited to see their name in their respective categories. Tom Hanks, Margot Robbie, Hugh Jackman, Denzel Washington, Reese Witherspoon all shared their enthusiasm, too. To see other celebrity reactions, check out the following gallery:
