Gabourey Sidibe insists she has "no nervousness" about being in the running for an Oscar this year.

The 26-year-old Precious star is nominated for Best Actress but she's taking all of the attention in her stride.

Press clamoured to talk to her at the ACE Awards in Los Angeles, honouring American Cinema Editors, but Gabby calmly told reporters on the red carpet: "There's nothing that can come from nervousness except bad stuff".

She added: "It's been a full year of 'I can't believe this is happening!' I'd like to be able to take a nap at some point but I do enjoy this."

"I was extremely excited and continue to be," the actress explained - referring to her nod at the prestigious movie awards.

"It's already a huge honour to be nominated but I don't think I need to think about a speech at all, I'm just excited to be nominated."

She says she's just looking forward to watching the show.

"I'm really excited that Steve Martin will be hosting with Alec Baldwin because I think they're both hilarious."
