"It’s surreal,” said first-time nominee Matt Bomer. “What I’m most excited about is that so many were recognized. I saw first-hand how hard so many worked — Danny Moder, the cinematographer, wardrobe, editing. This play and this film has meant so much to so many people. Everybody really believed in the story. For me, it was a dream come true. I would have been happy doing it in a regional theater. It’ll take a week to kick in. Maybe it never will."
