Jessica Chastain is gearing up for awards season!

The Zero Dark Thirty star, who has snagged a bevy of nominations for her performance in the acclaimed political thriller, is prepping for all of next month's big red carpets, and that means taking a break from her Broadway play The Heiress.

Chastain recently posted an update on Facebook giving fans a heads-up about her upcoming time off from the stage.

"I feel very grateful to have so much love in my life, and yes, that includes all of you," the 35-year-old wrote. "I wanted to give you all a heads up regarding the schedule for The Heiress. I will NOT be performing January 10th, 13th, and 27th, I'll be supporting Zero Dark Thirty at the Critic's Choice, Golden Globes and SAG Awards."

She also added: "My Fantastic understudy will perform the role of Catherine. If you've bought tickets for those dates, the theatre will exchange them for you. Sorry if this inconveniences anyone. Much love."

Chastain is up for best actress for Zero Dark Thirty at all three of the aforementioned awards shows, so it's no surprise that she'll be taking a few days off from The Heiress to be there.

She may also want to clear her schedule for Feb. 24: Hopefully, she'll be in Hollywood attending the Oscars as a nominee!
