As per THR, "I turned my phone off the night before because I was like, 'If anyone's going to tell me I got an Academy Award nomination or didn't, I want it to be my mother. But I was also sleeping in because I had a tough case of COVID," she said.

Further talking, she recalled having to do interviews about the nomination while being ill and “dealing with one of the worst moments of my life.”
She said, “I didn’t want that to take over because clickbait and stuff like that.”
