Geoffrey Rush and Taura Stinson React to Their Golden Globe Nominations

0

It has been a busy day for many newly minted Golden Globe nominees. Throughout the day, as the news sinks in, many are sharing their reactions.

Geoffrey Rush, who represents NatGeo on their first trip to the Golden Globes, was nominated for his work in “Genius.” He said:

“This is good news for Albert Einstein.  I believe in science.  I also believe in the complexity of humankind.  I am honoured to be in the company of fellow nominees who, with their artistry, have strived to define the multiplicity of dimensions in the male experience.”

And songwriter Taura Stinson, who co-wrote the song “Mighty River” from “Mudbound” shared the story of learning she was a nominee early this morning:

At 5:30 this morning, my publicist, Ray Costa, called and told me I had been nominated. It was the best wake-up call I have ever had!  This is my first Golden Globe nomination.  I’m so honored to share the nomination with my longtime writing partner and friend, Raphael Saadiq and the amazing Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J. Blige!  This is the first time Mary and I have written a song together, but our second collaboration.  I arranged a song she sang for “Black Nativity.”  Mary brought the idea of a song for “Mudbound” to Raphael and he brought me on board.  Mary gave us a play by play of the film.  The inspiration for the song title “Might River” for “Mudbound” came from the idea of washing the mud from lives, both literally and metaphorically.  The song is about the redemption of the two families featured in the film.  It is a song about forgiveness and hope.  We wanted to use the song as a platform to inspire and affect change.
