OSCAR Nominee Reaction: Natalie Portman

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

Jackie, the Fox Searchlight Film, from Pablo Larrain, earned Ms. Portman her third Academy Award nomination, for the gut-wrenching performance of Jackie Kennedy as she remembers Dallas, the three days following, and the inner workings of the White House.

The 89th Academy Awards nominations are always met with varied reactions and in a year like 2016, when it seemed everyone moved the bar up to single out only five performances and less in some categories as excellent or stronger is simply difficult. 

Below is Ms. Portman’s reaction:

“I am so honored by the Academy's recognition for "Jackie", and congratulate Mica and Madeline on their well-deserved nominations. I couldn't be happier to share this moment with our incredible Director Pablo Larrain and the entire cast and crew who worked so hard on this film. I am also humbled to join Isabelle, Meryl, Ruth and Emma - all incredibly accomplished women I admire very much. Jackie Kennedy was a study in strength, compassion, resilience and integrity and she provided hope for our country at a time when it needed it most. It was one of life's great honors to be able to portray her on film.”

The 89th Oscars will be held on Sunday, February 26, 2017, at the Dolby Theatre® at Hollywood & Highland Center® in Hollywood, and will be televised live on the ABC Television Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. The Oscars also will be televised live in more than 225 countries and territories worldwide.
