Charlize Theron Jokes Her Kids Think Her Oscars 2020 Nomination is 'a Waste of Time'

Charlize Theron is being recognized for her role in Bombshell, but her kids aren’t finding it too exciting.

The 44-year-old actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! earlier this week where she talked about being nominated for the Best Actress award at the upcoming 2020 Oscars – but are kids aren’t too enthusiastic about it because she already lost at the Golden Globes and Critics’ Choice Awards.

“It’s been a thrilling couple of weeks,” Charlize said. “I was nominated for a Golden Globe. I was nominated for a Critics’ Choice…Spoiler alert: I didn’t win.”

Charlize went on to say her kids felt “a mixture of super sad and kind of angry” when they found out she lost at both awards shows.

“They were upset,” she continued. “The little one was like, ‘Well, I really wanted you to win,’ like angry, and my 8-year-old was just pure disappointment.”

Charlize continued: “So when the Oscar nominations came in, it was the third time that they were like … now they’re suspicious…They’re just like, ‘Will you win this time?’ And I said, ‘You know, listen, there’s a good shot I’m probably not gonna win.’ And my oldest just went, ‘Well, this sounds like a waste of time.’”
