Roberts excited about sixth Globe nod

NEW YORK, Dec. 17 (UPI) -- Despite previously winning three Golden Globe awards, Hollywood actress Julia Roberts said she was excited to be nominated for another of the prizes last week.

Asked if being nominated for her sixth Globe was "ho hum" by now, Roberts told "Today's" Matt Lauer: "I didn't realize I had done that much. That's great. No, it's exciting. I mean, you know, usually the triumph of my day is everybody making it to the potty. So, yes, I think it's thrilling."

The married mother of three young children was nominated for her performance in "Charlie Wilson's War," which is based on the true story of how a playboy congressman, a Houston socialite and a rogue CIA agent led a covert mission that contributed to the fall of the Soviet Union, Universal Pictures said on its Web site.

"A lot of people didn't know anything about this story or these people and how this really came down, and it's pretty fascinating," Roberts said. "The three characters that are portrayed in the movie ... the ones that I play and Tom Hanks and Philip Seymour Hoffman (play,) they're not slouches. They're such fully realized characters. And Aaron Sorkin wrote this great dialogue."
