Charlize Theron’s children are not too excited about her Oscar nods.

The actress learnt on Monday she was nominated for the best actress for her role as Megyn Kelly in the Fox News-drama Bombshell. And two days later, during an appearance on Jimmy Oimel Live, Theron revealed that her children in August (4) and Jackson (8) were not very enthusiastic about the honour – especially since she recently lost at the Golden Globes and Critics ‘ Choice.

‘ It was an exciting couple of weeks, ‘ said Theron (44). ‘ I was nominated for a Golden Globe. I have been nominated for a critics choice. … Spoiler alert: I did not win. ”

The star, who won an Oscar for sample in 2004, said her children felt a mixture of very sad and kind of evil when they learned that she had not won the two awards.

‘ They were upset, ‘ she continues. ‘ The little one was like ‘ Well, I really wanted you to win ‘, like evil, and my 8-year-old was just a sheer disappointment. ‘

‘ When the Oscar nominations were thus dawning, it was the third time that they were like… Now they’re suspicious, ‘ says Theron lamorning. ‘ They’re just like ‘ will you win this time? ‘ And I said: ‘ You know, listen, there is a good chance that I probably won’t win. ‘ And my eldest said only, ‘ well, it sounds like a waste of time. ‘ ‘

In the best actress, Theron is named after Renée Zellweger (Judy), Scarcojohansson (Marriage story), Saoirse Ronan (small women) and Cynthia Erivo (harreed).

During an interview with NPR last month, Theron opened about her decision to adopt August and Jackson.

‘ I wanted to believe that my child would find me in some way or another as we were just meant, ‘ the actress explained. ‘ So I was not specific to something. … In whatever country they would grant that I could adopt as a woman, it was where I applied. And it is just so that both my children have become American. They were born in the United States and they were incidentally Afro-American. ”

Theron added: “Everything I hoped would happen during my aannemingsproses, happened because these two babies were meant in my life-and they are my children. “
