Amy Schumer Reacts to Golden Globe Nod: I'm Proud of Myself but It's 'More About the Revenge,' She Jokes
The Trainwreck star says her nominations are great revenge on her ex-boyfriends
Trainwreck is certainly not living up to its name.
“It feels so good. It’s like, it really feels good and I’m proud of what I accomplished, but yeah, really, it is more about the revenge,” Schumer responds to host Savannah Guthrie‘s asking if she’s calling ex-boyfriends to brag about the exciting news.
“I want to really thank the Hollywood Foreign Press, but more than that, there are people I want to say ‘no thank you’ to – how much time do we have left on the show?” Schumer jokes.
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.
“I picture Matt nude but still wearing his socks and loafers,” Schumer says. “Give the people what they want!”
Schumer also later took to social media to share her excitement over her nominations, posting a funny pic of her as a youngster that illustrates just how she’s feeling now.
“Me with my first globe predicting this moment #tbt Holy hell! Thank you Hollywood foreign press!! This is a dream,” she tweeted.
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. We can’t wait to see what 2016 holds for Schumer – the release of her much anticipated collaboration with pal Jennifer Lawrence, perhaps?
