LOS ANGELES (AP) - Reactions to the 70th annual Golden Globe Awards nominations, announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, Calif.:

_ "Don't ask me what I'm gonna wear. I don't know. I'll throw up." _ Helen Hunt on getting dressed for the ceremony, where she's nominated for supporting actress for "The Sessions."

_ "I'm celebrating by not doing a darn thing. That's my way of celebrating right now. ... My whole day is really about Christmas and packing up stuff and not much more than that, which believe me, with kids and grandkids and all of that is plenty." _ Sally Field, on how she plans to celebrate her supporting-actress nomination for "Lincoln."

_ "I can't wait to see Daniel Day Lewis. I'm wondering if he'll still be in character as Lincoln." _ Julia Louis-Dreyfus, nominated for her lead role in "Veep," on attending the Golden Globe Awards.

_ "It actually proves to be quite humorous sometimes because it will get to a point where people have had one too many cocktails and go up for an acceptance speech, and it ends up being very interesting." Hayden Panettiere, nominated for her supporting role on TV's "Nashville," on why the Golden Globes are her favorite awards show.

_ "It really wasn't on my radar. ... The film came out in March in a tiny, tiny release, and I wasn't even sure anyone had seen it." _ Rachel Weisz, on her surprise at being nominated for her leading role in "The Deep Blue Sea."

_ "We've both always felt that if we achieve anything, it's always for us. She's been nominated in the past and won, and I've shared that with her, and I share all my moments with her, too. The difference today is it's an actually literal `us.'" _ Keith Urban, co-writer of best original song nominee "For You," on sharing the Globes nominations experience with wife Nicole Kidman, who is up for two awards.

_ "To actually go there, it's still something, for me, that kind of blows me away... I like to go and watch all the movie stars. I get star struck and they're all in the room and I see Clint Eastwood or something and I still get a complete thrill out of it." _ Bradley Cooper, nominated for his lead role in "Silver Linings Playbook."

_ "This is a good way to wake up." _ Max Greenfield, who was awakened early Thursday with news that he was nominated for his supporting role on TV's "New Girl."

"It's very exciting to find out that there was a woman at the center of the greatest manhunt in history, and there are so many parallels for me between Kathryn (Bigelow) and (my character) Maya because of that. These are two people that are so insanely good at their jobs, but they never stop to complain about the glass ceiling in their fields. They never take their attention away from their jobs to do that." _ "Zero Dark Thirty" star Jessica Chastain, nominated for lead actress.

_ "On the Tuesday I got the script, on the Wednesday I wrote the song, and on the Thursday the head of the studio called and said, `This is probably the best song you've ever written.'" _ Jon Bon Jovi, nominated for his original song "Not Running Anymore" from "Stand Up Guys."

_ "Quietly, but we cheered." _ "Life of Pi" composer Mychael Danna, who is fighting the flu along with his wife but on the mend after learning about his first Golden Globe nomination for the film's score.

_ "It cannot be stressful. It just has to be fun. There are many, many things to stress for in this life _ not getting ready for a red carpet." _ Marion Cotillard, speaking by phone from Paris, about preparing for the Golden Globes, where she's nominated for lead actress in a drama for "Rust and Bone."

_ "I'm in a van on my way to Queens to do `30 Rock.' I heard the news this morning right before yoga. I was just about to shut off my phone. Unfortunately, I knew the nominations were being announced, so I was worried." _ Julianne Moore, nominated for her lead performance in the TV movie "Game Change."

_ "We'll have cheers and lots of high fives and maybe toss around some haggis and maybe drink some Scotch." "Brave" director Mark Andrews on celebrating the film's animated feature nomination.

_ "It's probably the only way you could wake me up early and not make me mad." _ Jennifer Lawrence, on receiving an early-morning call from her agent letting her know she'd been nominated for "Silver Linings Playbook."

_ "To be honest, I'll celebrate tomorrow when my wife gets home, because trying to do childcare by myself is very trying." _ Ben Affleck, on delaying celebrating his best director and best picture nods for "Argo" until wife Jennifer Garner gets home.
