It's been a morning of stars and filmmakers phoning in their reactions to the Golden Globe nominations. A smattering of the more entertaining responses:

“I think in Australia, because I’ve been around for 48 years, people think of me as a piece of old comfortable furniture. And now suddenly  foreigners like me." -- Jacki Weaver on her turn as the conniving Smurf Cody in "Animal Kingdom"

"You don’t expect late in your career to actually meet somebody that you form a very strong friendship and bond with. Which certainly happened with me and Colin [Firth] and Tom [Hooper]. It’s a rather embarrassing triumvirate of man love." -- Geoffrey Rush on the, er, chemistry on the set of "The King's Speech"

“A lot of tequila will run in our veins tonight." -- "Biutiful" director Alejandro González Iñárritu on his post-nomination plans

"I can remember when I found out that I had been nominated for 'The Full Monty' I was clearing cat sick off the floor. I really must get a more glamorous life one of these days." -- "127 Hours" screenwriter Simon Beaufoy

"I told [3-year-old-daughter] Nahla about [the nomination] and she said, ‘That’s great. Where are my eggs?’" -- Halle Berry on priorities in the Berry household

"The category is insane. It’s, like, what the hell is going on here?"-- Emma Stone on the nominees for best actress, comedy or musical, which range from her to Annette Bening to Angelina Jolie

"There will be a lot of ballet jokes. Last night Letterman made fun of the film. I think he said, ‘If you don’t want to celebrate Christmas, you can go see two Jewish girls make out.’” -- Darren Aronofsky, on how he expects the "Black Swan" ribbing to happen at the Globes and beyond

-- Steven Zeitchik, with additional reporting by Amy Kaufman, Rebecca Keegan, Chris Lee and Nicole Sperling
