While we know it's a bit more complicated than Kimmel makes it sound, a handful of stars are celebrating their first Oscar nominations after years of honing their craft in the business. That group includes Lion's Dev Patel, Hacksaw Ridge's Andrew Garfield, Loving's Ruth Neggaand Moonlight's Naomie Harris.
"It still hasn't fully sunk in," Patel told E!'s Giuliana Rancic of the nomination on the SAG Award red carpet. "I am overwhelmingly grateful and just freaked out equally."
"I am truly humbled by the news this morning, and I thank the Academy for this recognition," Negga said in a statement to E! News. "Today, to be among such extraordinary women - my fellow nominees, my peers with films this year, and the legendary performers whose work of years past has long inspired me...this means a great deal to me."
