Margot Robbie has said she is feeling “all the feels” after she bagged her first Oscar nomination for her role in I, Tonya.

The actress plays disgraced figure skater Tonya Harding in the biopic, which also landed a supporting nod for Allison Janney, who plays her mother.

Robbie shared a photo on Instagram of herself embracing her younger brother Cameron at the Australian premiere of the film.

She captioned the picture: “Me & my lil bro just 15 hours ago. No better place to receive such exciting news – with my closest friends and family in my home country. All the feels right now.”

Call Me By Your Name star Timothee Chalamet, 22, who is the youngest best actor nominee since Mickey Rooney in 1939, wrote: “okay quick #GRATITUDEPOSTbecause I mean holy shit what a day.


He shared a string of photos including  one with his Call Me By Your Name co-star Armie Hammer, a shot of his director Luca Guadagnino and another of his Lady Bird director Greta Gerwig and co-star Saoirse Ronan.

Rachel Morrison, who became the first ever female nominee in the best cinematographer category for her work on Mudbound, celebrated her nod by thanking the film’s director Dee Rees.

She wrote on Twitter: “Today’s Oscar nom couldn’t have seemed further away not long ago so I hope it tells all the dreamers out there (especially the young girls with cameras in their hands) that ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

“Thank you to Dee Rees and to the Academy for making my dream a reality.”

The Big Sick writer and star Kumail Nanjiani, who is nominated in the best original screenplay category for his film about how he met his wife and fellow writer Emily V Gordon, revealed he had lost a bet with Baby Driver director Edgar Wright.

Wright wrote on Twitter: “I told  I told @kumailn that he and @emilyvgordon would get a best screenplay nomination and that if I was right, he had to eat a bowl of brussel sprouts.”

Nanjiani replied: “Edgar loves brussel sprouts. I hate brussel sprouts. Tonight I will be eating a bowl of brussel sprouts and enjoying it for the first time.”

The Shape Of Water leads the Oscar nominations with 13 nods, followed by Dunkirk with eight.

British stars Gary Oldman, Sally Hawkins, Daniel Day-Lewis, Daniel Kaluuya and Lesley Manville have all landed nominations.

The Oscars will be hosted by Jimmy Kimmel at the Dolby Theatre on March 4.
