Nomination Reactions

“I’m so proud of all our artists who worked so hard to bring our labor of love into the world. Thank you so much to the HFPA for this wonderful honor.”

– Tom McGrath, Director, “The Boss Baby”

“It has been an amazing couple of days for us! On Saturday we were honored by the European Film Academy by being voted Best European Animation Film. On Sunday we found out that quarter of a million people in China went to see our film on its opening weekend. And today we’ve been honoured with a Golden Globe nomination for Best Animation Film! It is a dream. Vincent said he dreamed his paintings and painted his dreams. Well, making this film was the dream of our life, and now we are living a dream because of this film. Wow, just wow!”

– Hugh Welchman, co-director, “Loving Vincent”

“We were doing an interview for Swiss television, and the interviewer probably thought I was a complete weirdo, because I had so much tension in me that I couldn’t focus at all, then I got a sign from someone off camera and the interviewer then must have been sure that I was crazy because I jumped out of my seat screaming with joy and started running around the studio! All captured on camera. Probably not the best interview for viewers, but absolutely the best interview of my life! I am so honoured we were nominated. I’m so happy. For me, for Hugh, for our producers Ivan and Sean, for our amazing cast and crew and of course for our astounding painters, that the work they put into those 65,000 oil-paintings is now being recognized.”

– Dorota Kobiela, co-director, “Loving Vincent”
