Academy Award nominations were announced this morning, and ever since, Hollywood has been buzzing with reactions from the chosen few. One actress, Anne Hathaway, shared her excitement with her entire family – including her dog – and may have caused some confusion in the process! Of her nomination, Hathaway said in a statement:
"It is such a thrill to be recognized in this category with these remarkably talented women. I was with my parents and my dog when I got the news and we were all overjoyed – although I'm not sure my dog knew what was going on. This is a great day to be an actress!"
