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.’”

Awkwafina Addresses Oscars 2020 Snub: 'There's Always More Work to Be Done'

Awkwafina has had an incredible year, and she isn’t letting anything get in the way of that.

While promoting her upcoming show Nora From Queens at the 2020 TCA press tour, the 31-year-old actress reflected on all the success her film The Farewell has received – despite not being nominated for an Oscar for her role.

“We had a couple of text messages but everything [was] just about how appreciative we all are of how long this run has been,” Awkwafina said via Entertainment Tonight. “The Farewell came out last January at Sundance and we really didn’t know where it would take us. To see all the attention that it’s gotten, that feels like a win.”

Awkwafina added: “Bottom line, there were some amazing performances this year. I think all of them were warranted as they should have been. That’s not also to say that we can’t ignore the fact that there are some incredible movies that were women-helmed, including mine, The Farewell. Me personally, I feel very grateful for where I am and where we’ve come.”

“My emotional reaction to all of this really is that I’m grateful for this journey. We didn’t know that The Farewell would literally have a home,” Awkwafina continued. “We didn’t know if anybody would buy The Farewell, that it would be on the screens. To express that as far as we’ve come, it’s so much more. It’s the journey. For that, me personally, I think there’s always more work to be done. Of course.”

Earlier this month, Awkwafina made history as the first Asian American to win a Golden Globe for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her role in The Farewell.

“I’ve had a pretty exciting ride and I think with this show and with the movies that we’ve seen this year, representation existed in those movies and that’s what I know,” Awkwafina said. “In terms of anything else, I can’t be more grateful to do what I love to do and to be recognized, to be a little bit for that, is enough. It’s great.”
