Actress Felicity Jones says she jumped out of joy on receiving an Oscar nomination for her performance in Stephen Hawking biopic ‘The Theory Of Everything’.
Jones is competing against Julianne Moore (‘Still Alice’), Reese Witherspoon (‘Wild’), Rosamund Pike (‘Gone
Girl’) and Marion Cotillard (‘Two Days, One Night’) in the category of Best Actress at the upcoming 87th Academy Awards.
Jones, 31, said on ‘The Jonathan Ross Show’, she was overwhelmed with the nod and left speechless.
“There were no words, there was just lots of hyperventilating and exclamations and screaming and jumping
around in my pyjamas!” she said.
Oscars will take place on February 22 at the Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center.
