This morning (January 16), the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences unveiled this year’s Oscar nominees, and some of our favorite stars have weighed in on the news.
Leonardo DiCaprio gushed over his nod for Best Actor (Wolf of Wall Street), noting, "I am deeply humbled by this honor and even happier to share today with Marty [Scorsese], Jonah [Hill], Terry [Winter], as well as this entire cast and crew. The Wolf of Wall Street has been a passion project of mine, and I found the role to be one of the most challenging and rewarding of my career. Congratulations to all of my fellow nominees and thank you to the Academy for this extraordinary recognition."
It’s going to be another great year at the BAFTA Awards, and with the impressive field of nominees just announced, many of the honorees have shared their excitement.
“American Hustle” director David O. Russell gushed over the film’s 10 nominations, calling it “mind blowing.” “I am humbled and beyond grateful. It means everything to have our actors and our crafts people, who put their hearts into this picture, acknowledged."
Given that it’s the biggest James Bond 007 film of all time, it’s only fitting that “Skyfall” has been nominated for six trophies at the upcoming Empire Awards.
The British spy flick will compete for Best Film, while stars Daniel Craig and Judi Dench are up for Best Actor and Best Actress, respectively. Additionally, Sam Mendes snagged a nod for Best Director.
