Singer-song writer Justin Timberlake revealed to Deadline.com that it was his wife, Jessica Biel, who first broke the news to him that he was nominated for an Oscar.
On Tuesday, it was announced that Timberlake’s Can’t Stop the Feeling, which he had co-written, was nominated for the Best Original Song category.
“I was recovering from a late night at the studio, when I woke up there was a whirlwind of emails and texts but my wife broke the news to me which was even sweeter. We were just giddy this morning, and I’m still like in a tornado. I’m just really honoured and grateful they recognised the song,” he said.
