Reactions From Oscar Nominees

The Hollywood Reporter has compiled a list of notable reactions from the Oscar nominees. Read some of them below:
“I do believe some liposuction is in order, a very strict diet regime, and I will acquire a very light English accent. I was going to say that I should start wearing glasses, but I already wear glasses, so I am already sort of there.”
“Every once in a while, things going on in the bigger picture fuel the success of a film. People wanted to have something resonate on the positive side.”
“I’d always assumed that the road to Oscar was planned. I thought people chose projects that were considered ‘Oscar-worthy.’ No one wanted to make this film. I didn’t want to make this film for the better part of the year. Everyone is as blindsided — can I say that? — as I am.”
- Sandra Bullock, Best Actress nominee for The Blind Side

“I’m so grateful to have the honor of a fifth Oscar nomination, but to share this with my Crazy Heart colleagues T Bone and Ryan and my amazing co-star Maggie is truly special – this film is near and dear to my heart and theirs. I want to thank the Academy for being so kind to me for the past 40 years, and I want to thank my director Scott Cooper for helping bring Bad Blake to life, and to my wonderful wife Sue for being there for me the past 33 years. Today is filled with blessings”
- Jeff Bridges, Best Actor nominee for Crazy Heart

“Congratulations to Matt Damon on his nomination. I’m especially grateful to Clint Eastwood, ‘Invictus’ producer Lori McCreary, and the entire cast and crew of ‘Invictus.’ Most importantly, thank you to Nelson Mandela for his encouragement, his blessing and his friendship — without which, this film would not have been possible.”
- Morgan Freeman, nominated for Best Actor – Invictus

“This is more exhilarating than I could have ever imagined. What a tremendous honor from the Academy– a blazing stamp in the passport of an artist that can never be taken away and will always be cherished.”
- Jeremy Renner, Best Actor nominee for The Hurt Locker
