Amy Schumer Reacts to Golden Globe Nod: I’m Proud of Myself but It’s ‘More About the Revenge,’ She Jokes.

Add a Golden Globes nomination to the long list of accolades Amy Schumer has racked up this year. The latest on the 73rd annual Golden Globes nominations announced Thursday in Beverly Hills, California, by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (all times local): Golden Globe nominee Bryan Cranston says he sees parallels between his film “Trumbo” and the rhetoric of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.”‘I wish I never even made this movie,'” she recalled thinking after the ‘Trainwreck’ theater shooting in July. “And then I was like, ‘No, this is a call for me to get involved and do what I can.'” Schumer, who was nominated for best actress in a motion picture comedy or musical for her breakout role in Trainwreck, says she hit the lowest of lows after a Louisiana theater screening the film became the site of a mass shooting in July that claimed the lives of two audience members and left another nine injured. “When the shooting happened in Lafayette, and Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson died, I was just completely heartbroken,” Schumer told The Hollywood Reporter. “I was like, ‘I wish I never even made this movie.’ I was having these thoughts where I was just so upset.Beverly Hills: Lesbian romance drama Carol led the Golden Globe nominations on Thursday with five nods, including the top category for best drama, while Wall Street misdeeds movie The Big Short led the comedy film categories with four nominations. Cranston was nominated Thursday for best actor in a drama film for his portrayal of screenwriter Dalton Trumbo, who was blacklisted in Hollywood for refusing to answer questions about his involvement with the Communist Party.

And according to Schumer, the nomination means that their friendship, which includes working on a screenplay together and dancing on Billy Joel’s piano, is officially done. “As soon as I saw that we were both nominated, I took her right out of my phone because our friendship is obviously over,” Schumer joked in an interview on Thursday morning. “It’s really every woman for herself at this point, and I don’t want her to kind of get in my head, you know?” Kidding aside, Schumer is excited for both Lawrence and Brie Larson, who played Schumer’s sister in Trainwreck and was nominated in the drama lead actress category for Room. “It’s just so nice! Cranston sees similarities today and tells The Associated Press, “It’s reminiscent of what’s going on now about the political or the ideology of some people and the fear mongering — like Donald Trump — who jumps on something and feeds the fire and creates incendiary reaction to things, scares people and they react and that’s why poll numbers are going up.” Cranston says “We just need to calm down and go back to what is foundational to this country and that is embracing differences and realizing that that’s a strength of ours and not a weakness.” The comedian watched as one of her friends, America Ferrara read the name of her film, “Trainwreck” Thursday. For Amy’s exclusive photo diary from her big year, along with all the other stars who made PEOPLE’s ’25 Most Intriguing People’ of 2015 list, pick up this week’s special double issue of PEOPLE, on newsstands Friday When Guthrie and co-host Matt Lauer ask for cameos in Trainwreck 2, Schumer is hesitant to just give away the roles – “We’ll look at your audition tapes but the demand is high, so I don’t know” – so Guthrie offers a nude scene from Lauer. 2015 has definitely been Schumer’s year: Besides writing and starring in the raved-about Trainwreck, the Inside Amy Schumer star also hosted Saturday Night Live, won her first Emmy, released an HBO stand-up special, campaigned for gun control and stripped down for the annual Pirelli calendar. Carol lead stars Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara both landed best actress nominations, and the movie also picked up nods for director Todd Haynes and for best original score.

But as you might have expected, the Golden Globes—historically the most fun awards show of the season—stepped up big time nominating not only Lawrence but her new B.F.F. My friends!” Schumer said before continuing to praise her friends. “Room blew me away,” Schumer said. “Brie’s performance in that just completely floored me and my sister, and I just love her so much.

But she always knocks it so far out of the park.” In addition to going up against Lawrence, Schumer will be competing against Melissa McCarthy, Lily Tomlin, and Maggie Smith, whom Schumer says should watch her back. “That’s right! The ladies will have competition from fellow Golden Globe nominees Melissa McCarthy (Spy), Maggie Smith (The Lady in the Van), and Lily Tomlin (Grandma). Netflix’s original programming had the most nominations with eight, followed by cable network HBO — home of nominees Game Of Thrones — with seven.

Regardless, we doubt a Schumer win would do anything to damage her friendship with Lawrence given how notoriously relaxed J.Law is about awards seasons. TV actors who got nods included Viola Davis for How To Get Away With Murder, for which she won an Emmy earlier this year, giving a triumphant speech on diversity in TV.

So even though Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will, sadly, no longer be representing fun female friendship at the Golden Globes, we can look forward to what Schumer and Lawrence might bring to the party in their absence. It should be noted that Lawrence and Schumer’s other good friend Aziz Ansari also landed a nomination for his stellar new Netflix series, Master of None. They are: Aziz Ansari, “Master of None”; Gael Garcia Bernal, “Mozart in the Jungle”; Rob Lowe, “The Grinder”; Patrick Stewart, “Blunt Talk”; Jeffrey Tambor, “Transparent.” The best actor nominees are: Jon Hamm, “Mad Men”; Rami Malek, “Mr. In terms of how the movie studios performed, Twentieth Century Fox leads the field with 12, followed by Universal Pictures and The Weinstein Company with eight each.
