Michelle Williams: Oscar Nomination Caught Me Off Guard

Michelle Williams: Oscar Nomination Caught Me Off Guard

Michelle Williams stops by the Ed Sullivan Theater to tape an appearance on The Late Show With David Letterman on Wednesday (February 1) in NYC.

The 31-year-old actress paired her Erdem dress with Giuseppe Zanotti heels and a Balenciaga coat.

Last week, Michelle was on the Today show where she shared how she got news of her Oscar nomination.

She had been busy getting 6-year-old daughter Matilda ready for the day, then headed to a friend’s house for breakfast, with the pal opening the door with, “Michelle, they just called your name on TV.”

“It was a very sweet way to hear that news … [the nomination announcement] slipped my mind, which is something that’s so great about having a kid. You get really absorbed,” Michelle said.

    Oh please Says:

    She’s such a phony. As if she got naked and talked about Heath Ledger to GQ just to forget about Oscar.

    REALLY Says:

    Oh yeah, she had NO idea the nominations were even coming out, of course not! Of course her agent didn’t call her! She’s a mommy! It’s gross the way she is using Matilda like this.

    Will she give it a rest with the preciousness and fake surprise, already! I can’t wait for the awards season to be done. Winning an Oscar is like the kiss of death for many a career….so hopefully Clooney and Williams win. Christ on a cracker!

    “Off Guard” really, they actively campaign for those awards.

    Her hustle is shameless but it sucks coz it will actually work.

    Kirsten Says:

    I used to like her but I HATE how she plays the game and uses Matilda/Heath for sympathy and promotion. She wears mature/motherly clothes, is never seen on the carpet with any man and she claims that she had no idea about the Oscar nomination. Please, her agent and a million other people would have called her around 5 or 6 that morning.

    Lying *****!

    c'mon... Says:

    She must be dense if she couldn’t guess that she’d be nominated for an Oscar after being nominated for the Golden Globes and other major awards competitions. That is always a foretelling of the Oscars. Why is she trying to grab the public’s sympathies lately? She was lucky to hook up with Ledger because that was her foot in the door.

    ha ha Says:

    let’s hope we don’t see her again after the awards for a long time, she’s supposed to take a break, of course, to be with her beloved Matilda! Heath’s child! Hope she was at least being honest about the break!

    Am not getting her old lady fashion lately.

    Rob Says:

    I think she’s a great actress, but that’s complete bull. As if she’s been campaigning so hard to be caught off guard by what she’s been trying to get for the last few months.

    Random Says:

    Clearly Michelle Williams is a very strong person for accomplishing all that she has… what I don’t get is why she is so afraid to show that side of herself in public. She’s be more interesting if she added more shades to her virtuous poetry reading little girl lost routine.

    She looks so sweet.

    Nano Says:

    I think she’s pretty, but her face has been looking plastic lately! How come?

    hate her Says:

    michelle is SO AFRAID to be seen with a man, to be in a relationship.

    because if she will be in a relationship, sha cant play the victim anymore.

    now, she plays the : “oh poor me, my man heath is dead and i’m left alone to take care of our child”.
    “poor, poor me, im still in love with heath, i cant be with another man, so i cant gve my child a sibling…..”

    she is one real lucky *****. she is not that great of an actress,but she was always on the right place and on the right time.

    if weinstein wasnt so heavy behind that ****** movie of hers marlyn monroe, she would only dream of an oscar nomination .

    but she would propaply have got an razzie award, that’s for sure….

    That is one ugly dress!! And who’s going to believe her fairytale of not remembering the AA nominations?? Puleeze…as if.

    Gimmme that Oscar!!!!! Says:

    Her shtick is really annoying and transparent. She can play the “Widow Ledger, Mother of the one and only Ledger heir” all she wants but she is far, faaaar from anything resembling a widow. He couldn’t even stand her at the time of his death because she was using the love for his daughter against him all because he dumped her and found somebody else. She has the nerve to say she likes to imagine she and he would’ve gotten back together. Ahhaha!!!! We’re supposed to forget about the ugly custody dispute and the lawyers? As if Heath would have ever wanted to patch things up with her clingy, frumpy, vindictive ass. Gemma Ward must laugh her ass off at that lame GQ interview. I can’t wait for Michelle to go back to dating nobodies like her and stop milking Heath Ledger’s name. Nobody would give two craps about Michelle Williams if she hadn’t “happened” to get knocked by Heath Ledger.

    I hope she goes away for a looooong time.

    Delphic Says:

    She’s a great actress, but this award season she has been bothering me. But when it comes down to it, she is an actress and I don’t really care what she’s like outside of her profession and it should be the same for everyone else. No wonder every celebrity sounds like PR robots. Gone are the days when Bette Davis was a *****!
