"What an honor"–Johnny Depp reacts to his Golden Globe nomination for SWEENEY TODD

Asked to comment on his Golden Globe nomination as Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy for SWEENEY TODD, Johnny Depp said he was “super-flattered and immensely thankful,” reports People.com. “What an honor to even be mentioned alongside such a talented bunch.” Referring to SWEENEY TODD’s other Golden Globe nominations for Best Director, Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy, and Best Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy, Johnny said he is “[v]ery excited for Tim and Helena and the film!”

Tim Burton’s reaction mirrored Johnny’s: “It’s a great honor to receive this nomination from the HFPA,” Burton said. “I couldn’t be more thrilled for Johnny, Helena and the film.” Said Helena Bonham Carter, due to give birth any day now, “I’m very happy! I am fairly globular at the moment as I am about to have a baby. Tim wants to paint my belly gold!” Added the actress, with her usual candor, “It’s just nice to get some praise. Anything to get through the contractions.”

SWEENEY TODD producer Richard Zanuck told Variety how delighted he was with SWEENEY TODD’s awards nominations: “You can’t get enough of this recognition. I’m very proud of this picture. It’s so unique and was so unlikely to be made as a movie,” Zanuck said. “I’m especially thrilled for Tim, whose vision encompassed this entire endeavour. He’s wanted to make this movie for over 20 years and this is a great tribute to his passion and hard work.”
