Julia Roberts, who is nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture for August: Osage County, said: "Being a part of a film like AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY was a dream come true for me as an actor. To be able to take the brilliant words of Mr. Tracy Letts and bring them to life on screen - alongside such an astonishingly talented set of co-stars, no less - was a thrill and the challenge of my life."

"I'd like to offer my sincerest gratitude for your acknowledgement and for your continued support," the 46-year-old actress said.
