ABC NEWS – “I, Tonya” star Margot Robbie was nominated for her first SAG Award on Tuesday, and she found out during a taping of ABC News’ “Popcorn With Peter Travers.”
While talking about the acclaimed film focused on the life of Olympian Tonya Harding, Robbie turned to her publicist in the room and said, “Oh, my God! What?!”
It’s at that moment she found out about the great honor.
“That’s so exciting!” she added after congratulations from host Peter Travers. “Oh, my God, amazing. Oh, wow.”
The longtime Rolling Stone critic said that he “never got a reaction at that moment” when someone is overjoyed to find out his or her work is being recognized.
“Breaking news! That was, like, as immediate as it could be,” Robbie said. “When you make the film, you’re so worried about actually pulling it off and making it or even making the days or even getting everything shot so you can piece it all together to have a film that you kind of forget about the part when you show everyone and wait to see what they think. Yeah, it’s scary. So now everyone knows. Now we know that everyone thinks it’s good. That’s really nice.”
Margot talks about growing up in Australia, being around lots of venomous snakes, Outback Steakhouse, her first job at 10 years old, her new movie I,Tonya and she has a beer with Guest Host Chris Pratt.
Margot Robbie talks about getting recognized at Slipknot concerts when she went through a deep heavy metal phase and managing her nerves going into hosting Saturday Night Live.
