I congratulate our wonderful composer, Hildur, and my fellow producers Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Bradley Cooper, who worked tirelessly with our amazing crew to bring this film to the screen.

"My deepest gratitude to the Hollywood Foreign Press for the great honor bestowed on me with this Golden Globe nomination! It is wonderful to be recognized by this esteemed group of international journalists, some of whom I had the pleasure to meet in LA, and to feel such strong ties between Europe and Hollywood. Congratulations to Todd and Joaquin on their Golden Globe nominations for their incredible work, I feel truly blessed to be part of this team. Helping find the internal voice of Arthur Fleck was an artistic dream. This is a year for outstanding and innovative music and I celebrate with all Best Score nominees and am happy for their nomination as I am for mine."
