In 1991, Kyle MacLachlan won the Golden Globe for his role in David Lynch’s cult classic Twin Peaks. This year, history may repeat itself as MacLachlan is nominated for the same role that has become iconic since its inception.
“I’m truly thrilled and humbled by the nomination this morning. What a surreal experience to be nominated today for a role that I was so lucky to win this award for 26 years ago,” said MacLachlan in his official statement regarding his Golden Globe nod. “I am so grateful to the HFPA for this acknowledgment, and to David Lynch for creating this very special universe and allowing me [to] revisit it.”
In addition to making his “official statement” MacLachlan took to the official Twin Peaks Twitter account to answer some fan questions. One of them was what his first reaction was when he got word of his nomination.
MacLachlan said he received a call from his publicist about the nomination while he was in a cab bringing his kid to school. “I put her on speaker and she was so excited,” he said. “Unfortunately she said the F-word and my son turned to me and said, ‘That’s a dollar’.”
One fan asked how he would celebrate the nomination: as Agent Cooper, as Mr. C, or as Dougie? He didn’t play favorites with his answer: “I am going to celebrate as all three,” he said. “That means I’m gonna have a nice, hot, black cup of coffee.”
