Transcript for Brie Larson Reacts to Academy Award Nomination
? Easing us back in with the mus music the morning of the Oscar nominations. Spreading the wealth all around to a bunch of different movies this year. You see any possibility that one movie runs the table? I think "The revenant" would be your bet. The cinematographer is likely to be a three-time consecutive winner and could be a big night for "The revenant." What about director? I think -- I think inarritu is your best choice right now but could go in a number of different directions. Should be pointed out it's a whitewash in the acting category, 20 nominations. That is interesting and one of the nominees on the phone right now, brie Larson for "Room." Congratulation, how are you feeling this morning? Thank you. I'm shaking right now. I'm really confused. Ah, what a week you're having, you won the golden globe on Sunday and what a performance, I have to say, such a powerful performance. Great to have you here last week. So did you wait up all night for the call or get woken up by that phone? Oh, I stayed up. I'm in Australia right now, so I just got off work in time to basically come home and have a bit of dinner and then watch the nominations come out. Such an incredible performance you gave and because so much of it happened in that confined space, every gesture you made mattered. Yeah, exactly. It was a film that took a lot of research and a lot of time. I spent eight months preparing for it so that the movie could look like it was effortless. Your work goes back to "13 going on 30" I think, brie from way back when. What is this moment like. Something you dreamed of your entire life I'm sure being an Oscar nominee. I mean, it's the highest form of flattery in my field. It's unbelievable and the nominations mean so much because it comes from your peers. It comes from fellow actors. I was homeschooled and I never really felt like I was part of any group. To be included with people that I respected so much since I was a kid is just absolutely incredible. Lenny Abrahamson, getting nominated. The director of "Room." Tell us what he was like to work with. He's just an inspiration. I could not have done this without him. He is the most compassionate and care of any director I've worked with. I'm so incredibly happy for him. I think he deserves it so much. The film is what it is because of him, because of his skill, because of his humanity, his understanding, his depth, his love and I think this is such a well-deserved nomination. Hey, brie, who is the first person you call when you hang up with us? Yeah, exactly. Probably my mom. Yay! Good answer. Well, congratulations and enjoy the day, enjoy everything. You deserve everything you're going to get coming up. Brie Larson, thanks very much. Thanks so much. I look forward to hugging you all soon. Oh. Sweet. That's nice.
