Although a ton of people got snubbed this morning when the 2011 Oscar nominations were announced, a lot of great actors finally got the praise they deserved.
The King's Speech led the nominations with 12 total nods, and stars like Natalie Portman, Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman are on cloud nine today after the announcement. Here are their reactions:
"I am truly honored for this nomination. And deeply thankful to the Academy members for their trust and support. Also to all of those who showed their support to my work in "Biutiful" I express my heartfelt gratitude. I am very happy for Alejandro and everyone who has made possible the special movie we made together. It's really a huge honor to have been nominated in a non-English speaking performance and in the name of all my colleagues in Spain and mine I want to show my gratitude to the Academy for support and a recognition in this nomination for the movie "Biutiful."'

"I am so honored and grateful to the Academy for this recognition. It is a wonderful culmination of the ten-year journey with Darren to make this film. Making "Black Swan" is already the most meaningful experience of my career, and the passion shown for the film has completed the process of communication between artists and audience. I am so thankful for the support we have received and I share this honor with the entire cast and crew of the film, especially Darren Aronofsky."
