'I was sad, I was a little sad because there was a lot of buildup to it. There were so many articles, I got so many good notices - more than ever in my career - and there was a lot of: "She’s going to get nominated for an Oscar, it’s going to happen, if it doesn’t you’re crazy,"' Jennifer recalled.
'I’m reading all the articles going: "Oh my god, could this happen?" And then it didn’t and I was like: "Ouch," it was a little bit of a letdown,' she dished.
'Also I felt like my whole team - most of my team has been with me for years, 20, 25 years - and I think they had a lot of hopes on that and they wanted it too, so I felt like I let everyone down a little bit,' she continued.
The conjecture was that Jennifer would be nominated for best supporting actress, an award that ended up going to Laura Dern for Marriage Story.
