Nomination Reaction: Lisa Cholodenko

Director, 'The Kids Are All Right"

Technical difficulties didn’t stop helmer Lisa Cholodenko from enjoying the news that came at the crack of dawn informing her of the pic’s haul of four Globes noms, including a bid for comedy/musical picture.

“I actually woke up at 4 a.m. this morning because I was so excited but my Internet was down so after working on that for awhile I ended up going back to sleep — only to be woken up by a phone call telling me I was nominated,” she said. “It has been one of those great moments because (‘Kids’) took so long to write. I feel I have been running and gunning without a break for two years. It is so nice to finally see it get appreciated with this nomination.”
