Oscar Nominees Statements: Lesley Manville, ‘Phantom Thread’ (Supporting Actress)

Below find the reaction from Lesley Manville, Oscar-nominee for her performance in Paul Thomas Anderson’s “Phantom Thread” from Focus Features:

I am rather giddy with excitement at the wonderful news and extremely thankful and grateful that the Academy have honoured Paul Thomas Anderson, Daniel Day-Lewis, JoAnne Sellar, Megan Ellison, Daniel Lupi, Mark Bridges and Jonny Greenwood alongside myself with nominations today. It is also quite a day for my son Alfie Oldman – having both parents nominated in the same year.”
