Ellen Page 'Suprised' And 'Humbled' By Oscar Nod
The 20-year-old, who plays a pregnant teenager in the movie, is shortlisted in the Best Actress category at next month's Academy Awards and admits the news came as a complete shock.
She tells MTV.com, "We were coming from Paris on the train and just getting to London when I heard. It was exciting.
"Winning awards was something I was trying to keep out of my mind (but) it's a surprise and very humbling. It just blew me away."
Page insists the film's screen writer Diablo Cody was always confident that she would receive a nod for the part.
She adds, "She (Cody) texted me when the Oscar nominations came out saying: 'I told you so.'"
Page will take on Cate Blanchett, Julie Chritie, Marion Cotillard and Laura Linney for the award at the prestigious ceremony.
