Oscar Nominations Bypass Jennifer Aniston

  • Written by 

Hollywood star Jennifer Aniston was not nominated for an Oscar this morning for her performance in Cake; nominees were announced at 8:30 a.m.

Many in the industry had forecasted that the sunny entertainer would be included in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role list. The Greek-American actress whose family originally hails from Crete, disclosed to E! News that she didn't plan to wake up early this morning to find out the results, "I'll be in bed...I'll be in bed with my beloved [Justin Theroux] and my dogs dreaming wild little dreams."

Aniston added, "I'm not going to torture myself...My phone rang yesterday at five o'clock in the morning and I was like, 'What's happening? Who's dead? Is today Thursday?'" The Hellenic Hollywood actress received an extreme makeover for her upcoming role in Cake and stars as a grieving mother who is enduring extreme back pain, as a result of a fatal car accident. The 45-year-old entertainer was seen with a dominant facial scar on her right cheek, dark hair and baggy attire on the movie set. It's a different look for the spunky fresh faced and blond leading lady.

Cake costars Sam Worthington, Anna Kendrick and Chris Messina. According to a press release, the Greek-American plays, "...the acerbic, hilarious Claire Simmons, a woman who becomes fascinated by the suicide of Nina, a woman in her chronic pain support class. As she uncovers the details of Nina's suicide and develops a poignant relationship with Nina's husband, Claire also grapples with her own very raw personal tragedy."  The movie hits theatres January 23rd.
