Gina Wilhelm Actress – Actresses React to Their First Oscar Nominations
Viola Davis and Taraji P. Henson both received their first nominations for Academy Awards this year for “Doubt” and “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button,” respectively.
Both actresses, nominated in the supporting actress category, reflected on the new honors.
Henson screamed silently so as not to wake her baby. She also says costar Brad Pitt (also nominated for an award) was more excited for her than she was.
Viola Davis, who was in a single scene with with Meryl Streep, had her script for four months.
It sounds like the practice paid off.
