Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones' Oscar Nomination Reactions Are Adorable!
By Katie Krause
The Theory of Everything scored five Academy Award nominations on Thursday morning, and the film’s leads, Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones, were both recognized in the Best Actor and Best Actress categories for their portrayals of Stephen and Jane Hawking, respectively.
ET caught up with Oscar nominees just after the big announcement – and they couldn't have been more elated.
“I was fast asleep,” Redmayne told ET’s Nischelle Turner, adding, “I woke up to this banging on the door!”
“Felicity and I old friends,” he explained. “We started in theater together in England… we challenged each other and she’s such a ferocious talent.”
Jones was equally thrilled by the news.
The 31-year-old-starlet excitedly told ET, “There was a lot of running around and screaming and hyper ventilating at the same time,“ calling the morning “of those moments you dream of.”
And speaking of dreams, the actress is already fantasizing about what to wear on Hollywood’s biggest night: “I'm just thinking I've got to try a ton of dresses, I want to find something that's enormous!”
