Oscars: What the Nominees Are Saying

Producer Donna Gigliotti watched the live stream Oscar nomination reveal on Tuesday morning, but missed the old format. “I was watching online, which was a new and unusual experience. It’s efficient, I’ll say that. It’s a little more clinical than it has been in years past when I have been nominated. You kind of miss the publicists in the room “ooing” and “ahhing” over what’s being announced. But it’s efficient, so in that regard I guess it was a good thing.”

As for what she looks forward to most about attending this year’s Oscars, Gigliotti joked to THR: “What do I look forward to the most? Do you want the real answer? This is my fourth Oscar nomination and it’s a great honor. What I look forward to most is people lend me millions of dollars of jewelry. Somebody’s always giving you jewelry.”

As for Octavia Spencer, one of her film’s stars, garnering an Oscar nomination, Gigliotti said: “When her name was announced, I did have tears in my eyes. She’s making Oscar history. No African-American woman who has won has been nominated a second time. The nomination represents a real tribute to the actual people the movie is about. It pays tribute to their lives. Octavia was, for me, such an important part of getting the movie made. When I had that script she was one of the first people to read it, she came in to see me, she said, ‘I love this. I don’t know what part I want to play, but I have to be a part of it.’ She put the wind in my sails to confirm that this was a well-written script that had real value. She has great meaning to me personally because she was the first person to say, ‘I want to sign on.’”

With three Oscar nominations for the film, Gigliotti has her perfect idea of how to celebrate all of the recognition: “I’m going to crack open Vogue tonight and try to figure out what the heck I’m going to wear.”
