Playing Jennifer Aniston 'Not at All' Fazed By Potential Oscar Snub at 'Cake' Premiere

Jennifer Aniston has been one of 2015's most buzzed-about awards contenders, but the Cake star's dreams of Oscar gold were dashed on Thursday morning.

Aniston may have failed to score a Best Actress Oscar nomination, but she’s in good company. Golden Globes-winning Big Eyes star Amy Adams was also snubbed by the Academy, as was A Most Violent Year's Jessica Chastain.

Surprisingly, given her absence from all other major awards noms, Marion Cotillard scored a nomination for Two Days, One Night, while the other Best Actress hopefuls include the usual suspects: Reese Witherspoon for Wild, Rosamund Pike for Gone Girl, Felicity Jones for The Theory of Everything and Julianne Moore for Still Alice.

But if Aniston was nervous about her Oscar chances on Wednesday night, it didn't show. ET was with the actress on the red carpet for the Los Angeles premiere of Cake, where she told us her feelings about working on the film would "not at all" be impacted by a potential Oscar snub in the morning.

"Honestly, I mean the fact that any of this has happened is kind of just so unexpected," she said. "We're just all in awe of the whole thing. What's happened so far is incredible. I can't even process."

The 45-year-old uttered similar sentiments at the Globes on Sunday, speaking with ET's Kevin Frazier.

"Let me tell you, I've been doing it as long as I've been doing it [and] I feel still so excited that there can be exciting new discoveries," she said of her career. "It humbles me that I have such support."

Aniston certainly wasn’t the only star to be snubbed by Oscar. See ETonline's full list of snubs and surprises here.
