Reactions:

Carlos Rafael Rivera on his first two nominations for Godless:
"What a privilege - I'm shocked to receive two nominations for the music and main title theme for Godless. Thanks to Scott Frank for believing in me and our team to help tell his story. Thanks to Netflix for their support for Godless and especially for supporting the music in the series. Thanks to the audience who took to the music and made the soundtrack release a reality. Thanks to my personal cheerleaders - the amazing Beth Krakower and her team to help raise awareness. And of course my wife Lisette, and my family for their support over the year and a half of work."

Jeff Beal on his 18th nomination for The Putin Interviews:
"Oliver Stone is one of my all time favorite film makers, and I'm honored to have received a nomination for our collaboration on The Putin Interviews. It was an exciting challenge to come up with a theme to encapsulate the real-life drama when these two giants (Stone and Putin) met face-to-face to discuss what was unfolding politically around us at the time."
