Zooey Deschanel has given her reaction to being nominated for a Golden Globe award for the first time. The actress has been nominated for her role as Jess in Fox sitcom New Girl, while the quirky series has also been recognised for ‘Best Comedy or Musical Series’.
She told the Los Angeles Times: “The fact that people like it and it’s getting these nominations, it’s like… like, cake and ice cream.
“I’ve been working a really long time as an actress – I know how special and rare it is to get recognised like this.”
New Girl began its first season earlier this year on Fox, and follows Jess as she moves into a new apartment with three men after breaking up with her boyfriend.
