Here is what this Oscar nominee said when doing a brief press conference interview in the Oscar Nominees Luncheon’s press room.
Best Supporting Actress
This is your fourth Oscar nomination. Is there anything new to learn this time around?
I’m always saying, “I want to have fun,” but this year, I am having fun. It’s not a matter of I want to have fun. I don’t know if I’ll be back. Go willing. We’ll see, but four times is awesome, and I really want to enjoy it. I am enjoying it. It’s not like I want to enjoy it. I’m actually experiencing it.
Can you give a tease of what you’ll be wearing at the Oscars this year?
A dress. No girl ever tells you. Has a girl ever gone up here and said, “I’m wearing this by this designer and it’ll be this color”?
What do you ultimately look for in a dress for the Oscars?
This is such a boring answer. I think it’s different every year. It depends on my mood. This year, I’m going with the idea of having fun and just sort of fulfilling a fantasy of going to the Oscars.
