Issa Rae is officially a Golden Globe nominee.

The actress picked up her first Golden Globe nomination on Monday morning for her role on Insecure, a series also created by the Los Angeles native. “I am surprised at the passionate response. Everybody strives to make a show that’s successful,” the 31-year-old recently told HipHollywood when asked about the success of the HBO comedy.

She continued, “We wanted to make a show that was vey real and relatable where people would watch it and be like, ‘I know who that is’ or, ‘I am that person’ or, ‘I don’t ever want to be that person.'”

Rae, best known for her web series Awkward Black Girl, added, “You relate at the end of the day and it feels like people are relating super hard.”

Following the announcements, Issa not only thanked the academy for the nomination, but also expressed joy regarding the diversity in this year’s nominees. “How I feel today seeing all these mela-nominations. Thank you everybody,” she wrote on Twitter, including a clip of Wale’s “Lady” freestyle, Black Is Gold.

50 Cent Talks Wage Gap: “I’m The Star Of The Movie … They Shouldn’t Get The Same Check!”

Scheming, coniving, calculating … this group of guys will do whatever it takes to get the job done in the new action flick Den Of Thieves.

While Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, Pablo Schreiber and O’Shea Jackson Jr. try to pull of an elaborate bank heist, it’s Gerard Butler that trys to stop them in their tracks. They may be at odds on the big screen but it was all bro love off screen … so much so that Fiddy so graciously showed them his sex tape!

All jokes aside, the camaraderie amongst these guys was evident, but it was the diversity amongst the all male cast that made Butler most proud. “This is the most diverse cast and everybody in the movie is fantastic and it’s just great,” the A-lister stated while beaming.

And in addition to the team being diverse, their paychecks were also substantially different … but Fiddy’s take on the wage gap is an interesting one. “I’m the star of the movie, so I have to be paid … those other guys shouldn’t get the same check,” Jackson revealed. But, of course, he said it with a smile.

Den Of Thieves hit theaters Friday, January 19th … get ready for a crazy ride with a twist ending! Oh, and here’s a look at some pics from Tuesday night’s premiere.
