She added: "If I have to wear a trash bag, I'll belt it with rhinestones and make it work. "I'm not panicking because there are so many beautiful things out there, someone will not want to wear something and I'll get it!" The actress, who has been nominated in the Best Actress category for her role in dramatic film The Blind Side, said her inclusion was unexpected. "It was amazing. I literally was asleep when the phone rang," she recalled. "I don''t think anyone expects a nomination. I didn''t want to be one of those people who would be crushed when it didn''t come."
The stunner added that the Oscar nod has made her think differently about her acting career, reports The Mirror. "It scares me more than anything because I think ''what do I do next?'' she said. She added: "I've been thinking a lot about that. I don't know what could possibly compare to this moment or this energy so I've decided not to look at work until this is all over so I can make a real judgement. Judge the way I always have which is to produce interesting films. "I don't want to stop that. Because of this honour and what I've been given these last couple of months, I really feel an obligation to better my work."
