Frankie Shaw says Monday was always going to be a big deal for her, and that's before she learned she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award.
Shaw learned about her nomination, and another one for her comedy show "SMILF," while doing a live radio interview. It was with the Boston radio show "Matty in the Morning," which she listened to growing up and was excited to appear on.
Shaw's line started ringing constantly during the interview with calls from her publicist, agent and a show executive, so she knew something must have happened. While she scrambled to find out more, the show looked it up for her - all while on the air.
Afterward, she called everyone back for a tearful phone call.
Shaw, who created, writes and stars in the Showtime series, says "It was a great sort of big moment for a bunch of people."
The celebratory calls and texts keep arriving, even as Shaw spent her morning dropping her son off at school and fielding interviews. She says, "I'm just sort of processing it through everyone else."
Shaw says she's excited for more people to learn about the series, which she just finished shooting on Friday. She's still working on editing and other finishing touches.
She says, "It's all sort of lining up to take a little celebratory break."
It's a bittersweet morning for the songwriters of "Remember Me" from "Coco."
Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez learned of their Golden Globe nomination just as a bomb exploded on the New York City subway. The couple said they turned on the television to watch the Globe nominations when news of the Port Authority explosion broke Monday.
This is the second nomination for the songwriting pair, who were previously recognized for "Let It Go" from "Frozen."
Anderson-Lopez said they are now at work on "Frozen 2" and the Broadway version of "Frozen."
The couple says it's a "giant thrill" to be nominated, but they didn't plan to do much celebrating. Their cat is terminally ill and may be put down today.
Anderson-Lopez said they planned to sing "Remember Me" to him.
Fresh off hosting "Saturday Night Live," James Franco was planning to spend his Monday morning surfing. Instead, he awoke before dawn to watch the Golden Globe Awards nominations announcement, and was rewarded with hearing his film "The Disaster Artist" get nominated.
Franco was also been nominated for best actor in a comedy or musical for his film, which tells the story of the making of what is widely considered the worst movie ever made, "The Room." Franco plays Tommy Wiseau, who wrote and directed the cult favorite.
He says whether he attends the Globes with two key figures from "The Room," Wiseau and his co-star Greg Sestero, will be up to them. Franco says, "Well, you've got to give the people what they want. That seems to be what everybody wants, tuxedos and footballs on the red carpet."
He says he can't help but think of how Wiseau paid to keep his film in theaters to qualify for an Oscar run, only to have it ridiculed before it developed a cult following. Franco says of Wiseau, "The fact that his story is now getting this kind of recognition, I find it bizarre but I also find it really sweet and I do want to include them as much as I can."
As for celebrating the nomination, Franco says he plans to have dinner with his brother, who co-stars with him in "The Disaster Artist," and others later Monday. After a whirlwind weekend, Franco said he was tired, and surfing might have to wait.
Many awards season nominees learn they've been picked from their phones. Rachel Brosnahan says it wasn't her phone that work her up Monday, but her dog.
A quick check of her phone revealed that Brosnahan had been nominated for best comedy or musical television actress for the Amazon series "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel," along with Pamela Adlon, Alison Brie, Issa Rae and Frankie Shaw.
Brosnahan says being listed along with those actresses is stunning. She says, "These are women I am completely in awe of. 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."
For now, Brosnahan says she's planning to celebrate with a trip to the park - with her dog. And some coffee to help her wake up. She says, "That feels like a celebration."
Gary Oldman's nomination for best actor for his portrayal of Winston Churchill is well-timed - the actor learned the news while in London for the "Darkest Hour's" British debut.
Oldman says the nomination is "a bit of frosting on the cake."
The 59-year-old actor is also considered a front-runner for the best actor Academy Award for his portrayal of the steely British Prime Minister who navigated the country through World War II.
Oldman says it's tricky playing a real-life figure as opposed to someone fictional, and Churchill provided its own set of challenges. Oldman says, "With someone like Winston, the character is so mythologized and so iconic. It's both sweet and sour. "
