Cynthia Erivo Called Her Mom From a Plane to Share Her Oscars News!

Cynthia Erivo paid a visit to Tuesday night’s (January 28) The Late Late Show with James Corden, where she talked about her 2020 Oscars nominations for her role in Harriet!

The 33-year-old Harriet star and singer revealed the first call upon finding out was to her mother while she was on an airplane, and her mother’s first reaction was a bit unexpected.

“I called my mom, except I wasn’t really supposed to be calling anyone because I was on a plane,” Cynthia recalled. “I said, ‘Mom, I was nominated for two Oscars!’ She said, ‘Oh, oh my goodness, what am I going to wear?! She I wear English or should I wear Nigerian. Which color I should wear?’”

Cynthia also talked about what it was like to attend the 92nd Oscars Nominees Luncheon, where you apparently don’t really eat.

That same evening, Cynthia Erivo stepped out for the Songwriters Hall of Fame – 4th Annual Oscar Nominee reception held at LA Film School in Hollywood.

FYI: Cynthia is wearing a Missoni dress paired with Casadei shoes and Foundrae necklace.
