Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas were the proud announcers of the list of nominees for Oscars 2021 on Monday. The Jonas couple unveiled nominations in all 23 categories and called it the coolest work from home day. Priyanka’s own film, The White Tiger, bagged a nomination for Best Adapted Screenplay.
Priyanka later posted a funny photo where they are seen picking up a large installation of the Oscar trophy, joking that they are determined to win an Oscar one way or another. “One way or the other… Congratulations to all the nominees. And thank you @theacademy for the opportunity. @gregwilliamsphotography you fit right into our manic Monday. Thank you for the pictures,” she wrote in the caption.
On Twitter she shared, “My very own Oscar! It was so lovely to share this moment with you @nickjonas. I love you. Catch the oscars on April 25th! #OscarNoms.”
Earlier, she expressed her excitement at her film getting a nomination, tweeting, “We just got nominated for an Oscar! Congratulations Ramin (Bahrani, director) and team #TheWhiteTiger. Somehow announcing the nomination myself made it so much more special. So so proud.”
