The nominations for this year's Oscars have been announced, and the nominees have been asked to respond! Some of their thoughts as collected by Variety:
- Glenn Close: ..."I’m so proud to be in a little film that has such great resonance with so many people. I’m especially proud to have shared the creation of this character with my beloved daughter Annie."
- Sam Rockwell: "Hot damn! I am so truly honored to be recognized by the Academy again this year...."
- Yorgos Lanthimos: "Having felt a bit like an outsider looking in, I am truly humbled about this morning’s nominations. They are a meaningful tribute to every person involved in the making of The Favourite..."
I’m always overseas when noms come out and I don’t watch. Instead my publicist slips notes under my door and I find them when I return. MUCH love from the @BealeStreet family to QUEEN @ReginaKing and my right hand @NicholasBritell on their Oscar Noms!!! pic.twitter.com/qds8u9N6jK— Barry Jenkins (@BarryJenkins) January 22, 2019

So stoked for the whole #FreeSolo team on the Oscar nomination. If you've seen the film you know it took a village. Chai, Jimmy, Mikey, Clair, and the whole crew did an incredible job capturing the beauty of Yosemite and my lifelong dream of soloing El Cap. pic.twitter.com/SZmMHFbWQe— Alex Honnold (@AlexHonnold) January 22, 2019
