Here's some of the reactions to the nominations via the Hollywood Reporter.
"I'm very grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for the nomination. This film, and working with Danny Boyle and our amazing cast, has been one of the most creative and amazing experiences of my professional life. It's lovely to be honored."
"I’m so thrilled. It doesn’t matter how many times I’ve been through this or how many years I’ve been doing this job, it is still so nerve-racking," she continued to THR. "I’m just very, very excited. It’s a big year, there are some amazing performances, particularly by women. I was by no means confident. I thought it would be really quite unlikely. I’m quite delighted, especially for this particular film. It was one of the highlights of my career, and a real personal challenge for me. The role of Joanna herself, it was a very complex and a difficult part to play. She’s nothing like me, she doesn’t look like me, she doesn’t sound like me. That sense of total immersion and the desire to really disappear fully into the character was something I was constantly nervous about. It was an amazing experience."
"Thank you, HFPA, for this personal honor, and for all four nominations for Steve Jobs. This has been a very special film for all of us involved as well as a brave choice for Universal, and we’re grateful for the support you’ve shown it today."
"I was looking through the fridge for something for lunch and I got this text for a friend going, 'Wow, congratulations!' and I was like, 'For what?' So probably the least Hollywood experience ever," the composer confessed to THR. "I like that we had the concept to do three acts in the film. And we wanted three different styles: Analog, orchestral and then digital. You have these intellectual conversations at the beginning of the [process] and they never come out that way, but I am really proud of the fact that we managed to do that."
