The Hollywood Reporter has interview snippets with many of the Golden Globe nominees (but only one we care about). By the way, nominations are announced very early; some people reported getting their phone calls as early as 4:30 a.m.

“It was a very civilized 8 a.m. when I got the phone call,” nominee John Hamm said. “It’s a good way to wake up.” Hamm, who received his first nomination ever for the lead role in AMC’s “Mad Men,” said he’s been pleasantly surprised by the audience’s reaction to the series and his “strongly American” character, Don Draper. “You make these things and you hope people like them, so a positive response is gravy,” he said. “But (a nomination) is whatever goes on top of gravy.”
