Golden Globes 2012: ‘The Help’ Directer Tate Taylor On His Film’s Nominations
How does it feel to get your first nomination?
It’s a crazy cocktail of surrealism, exhilaration, nerves and being busy. But really, pride. Complete pride. I mean, just to think, this just doesn’t happen. A book nobody wanted to publish, a movie no one wanted to make with this director — understandably, on paper, I get it — and for me to get to go down there with my friends from Mississippi and bring Octavia down, my roommate; we met as PAs on “A Time to Kill” in ‘95 and came out to L.A. together, and to get to put her in a lead? C’mon, you’ve got to admit, this just doesn’t happen.
