By his own admission, director Barry Jenkins' plans after learning about his Golden Globe nominations are not exciting — he's going to do his laundry.

But don't feel bad for him. Jenkins says he likes doing laundry, and it's a necessary chore after spending two weeks traveling. He jokes, "It's therapeutic and it keeps me grounded."

Jenkins is nominated for "Moonlight," which received the second most Globes nominations of any film and has the most nominations in the drama category.

The director says he's grateful for all the nominations, including a supporting actor nod for Mahershala Ali. He says, "It fills my heart."

"Moonlight" tells the story of a young man's life in Miami and has emerged as a strong Academy Awards contender. It won't compete head-to-head against the top-nominated film, "La La Land," at January's Golden Globes because the show bestows separate awards for dramas and comedies or musicals.

Isabelle Huppert's Golden Globe nomination is just one part of a whirlwind day.

The "Elle" actress says she was in the middle of interviews for her next film role when her phone started buzzing with congratulatory messages.

It was a welcome surprise in a jam-packed day, with Huppert speaking to The Associated Press while traveling from France to Luxembourg to perform in a play.

Somehow, Huppert still found some time to celebrate. She says she managed to have champagne with a couple of friends before heading to her gig.

Huppert heaped praise on "Elle" director Paul Verhoeven, who she says she had total confidence in. "Elle," which was also nominated in the best foreign film category, has received some criticism for its portrayal of a video game executive who seeks revenge against the man who raped her.

Lily Collins is sharing the moment she learned she had been nominated for her first major Hollywood acting award.

The "Rules Don't Apply" actress posted a photo on Instagram of her with one hand over her mouth in stunned surprise at Monday's announcement by the Golden Globes that she was nominated for best actress in a film musical or comedy.

She wrote that her mother snapped the photo and she was in disbelief. The actress wrote she is "Beyond honored, thankful, and proud. This can't be real!"

The image received more than 1,000 comments and has been liked more than 95,000 times an hour after it was posted.

Hailee Steinfeld, another first-time Globe nominee, also shared her elation online. Steinfeld wrote on Twitter that she was in tears — and aboard a plane that's about to take off.

Mel Gibson is back in the awards season mix after the Golden Globe Awards nominated him for best director for "Hacksaw Ridge."

The actor has largely been a pariah in Hollywood since his 2006 drunken driving arrest in which he launched into an anti-Semitic tirade. "Hacksaw Ridge" is the first film Gibson has directed in a decade, although he starred in 2011's "The Beaver" and other films since his arrest.

Gibson's conduct, including a separate rant against an ex-girlfriend, was mocked by Globes host Ricky Gervais in 2010 and the men exchanged barbs onstage at last year's ceremony.

Gibson won a Golden Globe for best director in 1996 for "Braveheart." He went on to win a pair of Academy Awards for the film.

"Hacksaw Ridge," which stars Andrew Garfield, has received widespread critical acclaim.
