LOS ANGELES -- Filipino-American Robert Lopez and his wife, Kristen Anderson-Lopez, were among the people who woke up Thursday morning to find they had been nominated to the Golden Globe Awards.

Robert, award-winning cocreator of “Avenue Q” and “The Book of Mormon” - whose father is part-Filipino - and Kristen nabbed a best original song nod for their powerful ballad, “Let It Go,” sung by Idina Menzel from the animated film, “Frozen.”

“We are so grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA),” said the couple. “We put a lot of ourselves into ‘Let It Go,’ and working with Disney and Idina Menzel was a dream come true for us.”

As the nominations were announced early morning at the Beverly Hilton, one nominee screamed in Paris and another, wearing ear plugs, was awakened by his partner.

Those were among the nominees’ reactions as Olivia Wilde, Aziz Ansari and Zoe Saldana read the nominations at the Beverly Hills Ballroom. The presenters, along with Miss Golden Globe 2014 Sosie Bacon, daughter of Kevin Bacon and Kyra Sedgwick, were introduced by HFPA president Theo Kingma.
