Earlier in the week, Jennifer spoke out about the possibility of taking home an Oscar for her performance in the film.

“To wake up to that today was like, ‘OK!’ Obviously, I’m flattered. You work so hard your whole career. I’ve done so many movies and I’ve done so many roles that I’ve learned to not do them for anything except that I love doing them. Every movie that I sign onto and role I choose to play is about me exploring and being an artist, loving life and loving people. Having the opportunity to do that with my life is a pleasure. I learned that I don’t look at anything else,” Jennifer told the LA Times.

She continued, “When something like [Oscar buzz] happens it’s just wow. It brings tears to your eyes. It’s like, oh! Somebody liked what I did! I love doing this and it doesn’t matter, but it does matter — it does make you feel like all my hard work is being recognized, and that’s nice.”
