And… we are happy to announce that Natalie won The Actress in a Leading Role Oscar for her performance in ‘Black Swan’. This is what we all were waiting and hoping for, and this is a huge thing for Natalie and all her fans. It is Natalie’s first win in two nominations and follows her supporting actress nomination for “Closer,” which was made in 2004. Here’s what Natalie said in her speech:
Thank you. Thank you so much. This is insane! I truly and sincerely wish that the prize tonight was to get to work with my fellow nominees… I want to thank Luc Besson, who gave me my first job [in 'The Professional'], ['Closer' director] Mike Nichols, who has been my hero. And to everyone who’s ever hired me!… Darren Aronofsky, you are a visionary. I am so blessed to have gotten to work for you… I want to thank my parents for giving me the opportunity to work from such an early age. My beautiful love, Benjamin, who has now given me my most important role of my life. Most importantly, my family, my friends, and my love, thank you so much.
