The nominations have been announced for the Oscars 2023 and Jamie Lee Curtis has received her first-ever nod.

The iconic screen star, 64, will be up for the best supporting actress gong at this year’s ceremony for her performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once.

Curtis marked the momentous milestone shortly after the full nominations list was announced on Tuesday, posting a photo of herself reacting to the news while also noting the achievement was ‘never even in my wildest dream box’.

In one social media post, Curtis explained that one of her closest friends and a fellow filmmaker text her shortly before this year’s nominations were announced and asked if she wanted company while watching the big reveal.

Looking at her TV, Curtis could be seen with her hand clasped over her mouth and explained the photo was captured at the exact time her name was read out.

In a second photo, Curtis looks at the camera with her mouth wide open, which she explained was her reaction to finding out her friend and Everything Everywhere All at Once co-star Stephanie Hsu had also received a nomination in the category.

‘As this is a movie about a family of immigrants and their struggles through life, immediately I’m thinking of my parents, children of immigrants from Hungary and Denmark, whose families came here and sacrificed for their children to achieve their dreams.’

Curtis concluded: ‘I can only imagine what it would feel like for them and their parents to hear that their daughter/granddaughter was nominated this morning for an Oscar.

‘I am stunned and humbled and excited for our little movie that could and did and based on today’s nominations, continues to do and do and do.’
