It's an honor just to be nominated.
"Oscar nomination morning" is always an exciting day for the industry at large, as peers get nominated and careers are subsequently made (or reestablished) in the process. Just what would it be like to find out you were nominated for an Academy Award?
Well, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) have put together a heartwarming, rightfully overly excited montage of several of this year's nominees hearing that very news for the first time.
Gleeful and infectious, the video features personal footage, primarily shot via camera phones, as several first-timers (and two-timers) hear their names called on the Academy Award nomination broadcast. There's a ton of screaming and hollering apparent, and all feels sincere and a little bit of a relief to finally have heard your name called.
Watch the celebratory reactions below.
