When this year's Oscar nominations came out Thursday morning, there were several grumblings. Among them, that the noms were lacking any diversity, that the Lego Movie  wasn't up for Best Animated Feature, and that Jennifer Aniston didn't make the cut for Best Actress for her role in Cake
Access Hollywood asked Aniston how she felt about this on the red carpet for the Critics Choice Awards Thursday evening. "I'd be lying if there wasn't a little [aw], but after that there's a lot of, 'But look at tonight, look at the Globes, look at the SAGs!'" Aniston told the reporter.  "We're an embarrassment of wonderful riches [for] a movie that hasn't even been released and is teensy tiny. This is all just cherries on top of something that was really special to us. So we're really excited."
It gets better. She shared a story about the hours after the nominations came out. "[Reese] sent me such a sweet email, as did Julianne [Moore]. They are all amazing women, but you know, we're all rooting for each other and it doesn't take away the work that was done," Aniston told Access Hollywood. And that is how you respond to an Oscar snub, folks.
