Hailee Steinfeld, nominated for best actress in a comedy or musical for her performance in "The Edge of Seventeen," released a statement about being recognized as a Golden Globes contender by the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn.

"I am overcome with excitement and joy to be nominated for The Edge of Seventeen," she wrote. "We set out to make a film that would resonate with men and women of all ages because the message of self-acceptance and embracing your truth is universal.  

Contrary to the reality that I face as a young actress on a daily basis, "Edge of Seventeen" isn't a film about a teenage girl wrestling with her identity and self-worth because of the influence of social media defining her popularity. Instead, it's an anthem for self-acceptance, and I'm so grateful to Jim Brooks and Kelly Fremon-Craig for granting me the opportunity to play such a complex and unlikely heroine."
