Charlize has some stiff competion for the Award. She will be up against Scarlet Johansson, Renee Zellweger, Saoirse Ronan and Cynthia Erivo.
She spoke to CNN Entertainment about the feat. “Making Bombshell is one of the great highlights of my career. I wish that the story in this film never needed to be told, but I am so proud of the entire team on this film for telling it with such grace, sensitivity and humanity,” she said.
She spoke about sexual harassment in the workplace. “I think that is a human right that we should all have. We should be able to go to work and live in a world where we’re not threatened, we’re not power-played and we’re not sexually harassed. We’re not sexually assaulted just to provide for our families or for ourselves.”
The Benoni born beauty now has three nominations from the acting Academy. In 2003 she received critical acclaim for her work in Monster and ended up winning Best Actress at the Academy Awards.
