“Not even to sit in the audience, not to present, nothing — and I’m a member. I love the Academy Awards. I cheer on my peers, but it hurts,” Rosie admitted by being left out from the show.

She likens it to “like when your home team doesn’t ask you to come back into the stadium after you got up to bat and hit the home run.”

Rosie was nominated at the 1994 ceremony alongside Anna Paquin, Winona Ryder, Emma Thompson and Holly Hunter.

Anna won the Oscar, becoming the second youngest winner at the show.
