See How Kirsten Dunst & More Stars Celebrated Their Oscar Nominations

“WOW!  I’m so overwhelmed!” the actress, who is nominated in the Best Actress in a Leading Role category for her performance in Being the Ricardos, said in a statement. “Just having breakfast with my family when the nominations came in. What a beautiful way to find out!  I share this with them, Javier [Bardem], J.K. [Simmons], Nina [Arianda] and with ALL the cast and Aaron Sorkin, as this is ours together.  This was the hardest role I’ve ever done and to be honored this way is deeply appreciated. And to Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr, thank you for trusting me with the opportunity to inhabit your mother.  Lucille Ball is one of Hollywood’s greatest icons.  She was ahead of her time.  From actress to producer to studio head, mother and wife, she’s an extraordinary inspiration! Thank you Lucille Ball.  And to everyone who worked on this film both in front of and behind the camera, our passionate and hardworking crew, Amazon, Todd Black, Aaron Sorkin, this nomination is ours to share!”
