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.”
