Following is Brian's statement upon hearing about the nomination:
"My life, my love, my Melinda – God only knows what I’d be without her. She was the inspiration for “One Kind of Love” and just woke me to tell me the song has been nominated for a Golden Globe — my mind is blown! Thank you Hollywood Foreign Press and everyone involved in telling my story. And a huge hug to Paul Dano for his nomination this great morning! I’m now going back to bed for some sweet, sweet dreams."
– Love & Mercy, Brian Wilson
