It's the most wonderful time of year for actors and actresses: awards season. With Golden Globe nominations announced Monday, the day was particularly good for the TV and film stars who earned nods from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association.
There were surprises and there were snubs, but the pack is an impressive one. While we haven't heard reactions from the entire field, some of the nominees shared just how enthused they were on Twitter. Thanks to their tweets, we got to share in their laughter, tears, and emojis.
Some of the first-timers were particularly exuberant. (Can you blame them?)

Thank you, Golden Globes! As we speak, the entire Deadpool team is engaged in a grotesque, early morning tickle-fight. pic.twitter.com/l2LJT32tAi
