Maggie Gyllenhaal is in Los Angeles, and it's been a whirlwind so far for the supporting actress nominee, up for playing a single mother in Crazy Heart. She never saw this coming.

"Because I didn't get any other nominations, I was so surprised," she says. "I was completely shocked and so excited. I love the movie and I feel so proud of it. I'm excited about celebrating it and getting dressed up. I haven't done work I'm more proud of."

One of the first calls this morning came from her on-screen love and best actor favorite, Jeff Bridges. "Jeff called me this morning. He was barely even making words. He was kind of singing and moaning. He was so excited. I feel thrilled," says Gyllenhaal.

Her day, thus far, has been all about family.

There's a sense of excitement at home, because her husband Peter Sarsgaard's film, An Education, is also up for best picture.

"We woke up at 5:30," says Gyllenhaal. "I've been up forever already. I just got up really early and had coffee with my brother (Jake Gyllenhaal) and my daughter woke up. I haven't had a second to breathe."

She might have a mimosa to celebrate, but her night is wide open. "I don't know what I'm going to do," says the actress.

i'm so happy for her.she's great in everything she does.
