Amy Schumer earned a best actress Golden Globe nomination on Thursday for her breakout role in Trainwreck.
But it was bittersweet moment for Schumer, who has previously said she wishes she never made the movie.
Back in July during a screening of her hit movie, a man opened fire in a Louisiana cinema killing two women and injuring nine others.

Speaking to the Hollywood Reporter, Schumer said :“When the shooting happened in Lafayette, and Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson died, I was just completely heartbroken.”.
She continued: “I was like, ‘I wish I never even made this movie.’ I was having these thoughts where I was just so upset. And then I was like, ‘No, this is a call for me to get involved and do what I can.’ It’s been really frustrating, but I really think we can end gun violence at the level it’s at. I feel like I’m helping, and I want to keep helping. I would rather not have to be involved and have everything be great already. But I’m proud to be saying what I believe in.”
Earlier this week Schumer joined other celebrities in a campaign video for Everytown for Gun Safety. Watch the video here: https://www.mygc.com.au/video-celebrities-join-obama-in-call-to-end-gun-violence/
