2016 Golden Globe Nominees' Reactions To The Honor Are Surprised & Endearing

In case you’re not an early bird, the 2016 Golden Globe nominations were announced Thursday morning from the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills. And as always, there was lots of chatter on social media about who got nods and who got snubbed. But what were the Golden Globes nominees' reactions? One by one those honored in Thursday morning's announcement took Twitter to express their responses to the news.

Some of them, like Eddie Redmayne, will likely have tweeted about several nominations by early spring. Though the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards won’t air on NBC until January, ‘tis the season of award shows ... or nominations for that matter. On Wednesday, the Screen Actors Guild unveiled their 2016 nominees, and the Golden Globes have consistently predicted how the Oscars will unfold.

The 2016 Golden Globes will be hosted by Ricky Gervais, and the ceremony will take place on Jan. 10. We’ll definitely miss Amy Poehler and Tina Fey taking the reigns, but we know Gervais will do a good job — the fourth time around.

Though we are too ready to hear our favorite actors and actresses' sacceptance speeches, we got to see some of their gratitude and excitement today when the Golden Globe announcements dropped. Like any celebrity with Internet access, they tweeted about it. And as always, the Twittersphere was all ears:
