During a recent appearance on Late Late Show in Dublin, Ruth opened up about how the new movie is generating Oscar buzz.

“It’s lovely to hear,” she said. “I don’t know anyone who does their job for the Oscar, but it’s a lovely thing to be acknowledged by your peers.”

Ruth, who has been nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for Loving, added she found the award ceremony to be very overwhelming.

“It’s very overwhelming,” she says. “It’s so different to acting because, while there is a certain amount of surrender, you do have an awful lot of control – but with this thing you don’t. And the scrutiny is uncomfortable.”

FYI: Ruth wore a Carolina Herrera candy pink puff sleeve dress. Andre is wearing Ermenegildo Zegna.
