POPSUGAR: How did you find out?
Greta Gerwig: I'm so surprised and excited and honored . . . I found out from a phone call, I was asleep. I didn't know that the nominations were announced today! I had read that you get a phone call really early in the morning and my phone rang and I thought I was in trouble so I ignored it and then got really anxious that I was in trouble. [Laughs] Then I looked at my phone and saw all these nominations — not nominations! Text messages, I only got one nomination! And that's how I found out. I'm verklempt, is that a word? Yes, I'm verklempt. It was totally a surprise, I feel like a cliche. I seem like I am acting too surprised!
PS: Have you given any thought to what you are going to wear?
GG: Yes I have . . . I get to wear a full-on gown and it's not going to be weird, it's going to be normal, so I'm excited about it. I've already started thinking about it in my head, it's so exciting because you usually get a special dress that's just for you. I am a total fashion junkie so I am really excited.
