Any disappointment felt by Hailee Steinfeld for not snagging “Best Young Actor/Actress” at Sunday night’s Critic’s Choice Awards has quickly disappeared. Hailee learned of her first-ever Golden Globe nomination Monday morning and freaked out in a way that would make Demi Lovato, a first-time Grammy nominee, proud.
Hailee’s exciting achievement places her “The Edge of Seventeen” role in the running for “Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture-Musical or Comedy.” Her nomination joins an impressive category lineup that features Annette Bening, Lily Collins, Emma Stone and three-time Oscar winner Meryl Streep.
The 74th Golden Globe Awards will air live January 8 at 5pm PST on NBC.
Are you surprised by Hailee’s nomination?
