With her Oscar nomination for Best Actress, Olivia Munn was nominated for her performance in “The Next Steps.”
The Oscar-winning actress was one of three actresses nominated for best actress in a single category for her role as a transgender woman who is an expert at being a woman.
However, she was not nominated for the best actress award.
“I feel honored and grateful,” Munn said.
“We have a lot of great actresses in this field, and I just feel lucky to be in this category.
I’m so grateful to be nominated for a role like that.”
Munn also thanked her “super supportive” fans for their support.
“It’s just a really great honor,” Munen said.
The Oscar nominations were announced Monday by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
“The Oscars are a celebration of the achievements of women in film and television, and a time to celebrate the talent and creativity of female directors and actors,” said AIMA President Amy Pascal.
“There are more than 500 Academy members across the country who have been nominated to receive an Oscar.
And each year, more than 250 Academy members are selected to receive the prestigious honor of the Academy Award.”
The other nominees for best actor in a supporting role were “The Theory of Everything” and “The Good Place.”
Both women won Oscars for their roles.
The “The Wire” actress was nominated in the best supporting actress category, for her portrayal of Lenny Dykstra, a former FBI agent who now works as a cop.
“When you’re a young actor who is looking for your first love, and you’re playing a character that’s so complicated and has so much complexity, that’s what I was looking for,” Munny said.
