Jamie Lee Curtis had the cleanest reaction to her first Oscar nomination

Jamie Lee Curtis has received her first ever Oscar nomination, and her reaction to the news was incredibly healthy.

The “Knives Out” star was nominated Tuesday for best supporting actress for her performance in the sci-fi epic “Everything Everywhere All at Once.” Sharing photos of the moment she found out, the 64-year-old wrote: “THIS IS WHAT THE SURPRISE LOOKS LIKE!”

Curtis said the photos were taken by “one of my oldest besties”, Oscar-winning producer Debbie Oppenheimer, who had texted her that morning asking to watch the announcements with her.

“She came in and sat with me as I had sat with her the day she was on her way to the Oscar ceremony the year she won,” Curtis wrote. Oppenheimer’s “Into the Arms of Strangers: Stories of the Kindertransport” won best documentary in 2001.

“We were holding hands. I didn’t even realize she was taking pictures,” Curtis said. “The first thing is the moment I hear my name, then the excitement of my friend Stephanie’s name, and the rest of the ​​the nominations and then best of all, a loving hug from my husband.”

Curtis’ “Everything Everywhere All at Once” co-star Stephanie Hsu was nominated in the same category. The film could win 11 Oscars, including Best Picture, Best Actress (Michelle Yeoh) and Best Supporting Actor (Ke Huy Quan). Curtis is married to actor, writer and director Christopher Guest.

“WHAT MOMENT FOR YEOH!” she wrote, matching her energy levels at the Golden Globes, where she went viral for her exuberant reaction to Yeoh’s win.
