Jake Gyllenhaal: Golden Globes Nomination was 'Unexpected'

Jake Gyllenhaal: Golden Globes Nomination was 'Unexpected'

Jake Gyllenhaal grabs lunch at Angelini Osteria on Tuesday (December 14) in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old actor waited at the valet curb for his car before heading home from the Italian restaurant.

USA Today congratulated Jake on his Golden Globes nomination – then asked who his date for the ceremony would be!

“I didn’t think I was getting nominated!” Jake said. It’s going to be a long, slow burn for me. I’m not rushing into anything!”

“I was asleep. I didn’t wake up. It was pretty unexpected,” Jake added. “I got a call and then I checked my phone and I had 25 e-mails, and it was either disconcerting or exciting. In this case it was exciting.”

FYI: Jake is wearing Hoyle Jackson jeans.

    He’s gonna look so good on the red carpet. Wish you would bring Maggie or Anne as your date…please do not bring Taylor, although I know you aren’t dumb enough to do that!

  • rhonda

    its a shock to him? really? isn’t that why he’s sticking close to Taylor Swift and all those cameras?

  • Kaz simply amazing! Pretty!!!!!!!

  • i n f a m o u s l y c o o l

    @Amy: …what are you waiting for?! …the movie been out, go see it if he’s such a great actor.

  • saadGkhan

    Show your personal Assets and get nominated… I think that was Oscars Criteria? LOL

  • Whatever

    Golden Globes are a joke, and this proves it.

  • jd

    I guess all that publicity with Taylor is paying off. he’s not that good of an actor.

  • Wendy

    Why was he nominated? These award shows are a joke. His campaigning with his beard Swift is what got him the nod.

  • 50cent

    there you go jake ma man with your little baby you going for it know what im sayin but why you by yourself lunchin know what im sayin get that baby girl by your side or she be textin her sallygirl know what im saying be cool jake



  • Judithlee

    He did not deserve it. But thankfully he won’ t be nominated for an academy award since they don’t have that actor in a comedy/musical just actor in a leading role catagory. He definitely will not get considered for that.

  • Cole

    I was surprised to see his name on the nomination list even though I am a big fan. He did a good job in that film and it was one of those films that you can just sit and enjoy, but it didn’t seem like an award winning film to me at all..

  • Mandy

    Jake suks and can’t act. he should not have even been considered. What a joke.

  • Barbara

    Really? Boy the actors this year must be few and far between to nominate him for this. And Johnny Depp nom twice? LoL

  • janine

    well, we’re as surprised as you are Jake, it WAS unexpected&highly not worthy; I guess the Golden Globes trully lost all creadibility this year!

  • http://chazchazchaz chandni

    yes it was unexpected…just like your relationship with taylor! :@

  • LMAO

    You’ve got to be kidding? This guy’s life is one big showmance.

  • Golden Globes

    They are fake just like you Jake!

  • Dexter’s girlfriend

    so? who’s going to be his date? what did he answer jared?

  • Claudia

    Of course he did not expect it since these year’s nominations are a joke. Just like The Tourist his movie wasn’t exactly a comedy even if it was marketed like one.

  • psychic

    he was asleep and I was watxching him. hehehehe
    I’m his girlfriend not .Taylor

  • Paula

    Jake got nominated because he beards with Taylor Swift? Some of of the “Jake is gay” believers are crazy. There is no proof that Jake is gay and bearding, second I’m sure he deserved the nomination. I’m looking forward to see LAOD.

    Jake looks way better in candids than at award shows. I like his hair longer.

  • jakejakejake

    Love you and I am a guy and not ashamed to say it! Wish you were my BFF and more. Love, David

  • Lawrence

    Looking good Jake!.

  • Cheryl

    I think he and Taylor broke up that day when they were caught by the paps driving around LA. That’s why Jake got uncharacteristically angry with them. He was in the process of getting dumped.

  • Fran

    Yeah, he’s shocked that his PR firm was willing to spend the large amount if money needed to buy him a nomination. If his PR firm was willing to spend large amounts of cash for a Globe nomination, why didn’t they spend more money to get him a better fake girlfriend. This entire romance with Swift not only screams FAKE, but it’s just laughable and makes him look like a fool.

  • kelly

    Jake got nomination because he is great actor and this year there´s no a lot of great actors like him!

    He doesn´t need Taylor to get nomination. He has already got nomination to Oscar and all this bs is ridiculous!

    Probably he won´t win – may Paul Giamatti win – but he is young and has a long and sucessful way in his career.

  • Aquio

    Agree 100%. Angelina and Johnny nominated for The Tourist (which was meant to be a thriller/drama but sucked so bad they made it a comedy) was the biggest joke and Jake’s is, too. All they’re doing is marketing the crappy big budget films that tanked and need to make some money back. Angelina promised she would attend if she and Johnny got nominated to boost ratings. What a manipulator. The GG award shows are for suckers.

  • mindy

    @kelly: I agree Paul Giamatti is the best candidate

  • sweetgirl4ever

    You are my fav actor since I saw Donnie Darko < I wanted you to win the oscar for BBM but George Clooney was good too. I hope you make another drama so you can get nom for another oscar. It’s too bad but they usually don’t nom for comedy as much. Anyway love you Jake and good luck!

  • se

    I can beleive that Jake Gyllenhaal somtimes can see his own reflex in mirror…this film is completly idiot!
