  • Morgan Freeman's reaction to his nomination is at the Hollywood Reporter.

    Morgan Freeman received his fifth Oscar nomination -- he won once before for "Million Dollar Baby" -- for stepping into the shoes of Nelson Mandela in "Invictus." "I'd like to thank the Academy for this honor," he said in a statement. "Congratulations to Matt Damon on his nomination. I'm especially grateful to Clint Eastwood, 'Invictus' producer Lori McCreary, and the entire cast and crew of 'Invictus.' Most importantly, thank you to Nelson Mandela for his encouragement, his blessing and his friendship -- without which, this film would not have been possible."
