Actress Charlize Theron was over the moon when she was announced as a nominee at the upcoming Screen Actor’s Guild Awards and her excitement showed (and even led to a wardrobe malfunction, eek!)
It’s been an incredible month for Charlize, who scooped her second major nomination in as many weeks for her role in the star-studded movie Bombshell.
After receiving a nod at the upcoming Golden Globe awards, Charlize found out that she had also scored a nomination at the upcoming Screen Actors Guild Awards. She was nominated in the Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role category for her portrayal of American journalist Megyn Kelly.
Bombshell, as its title suggests, is a movie which tells the explosive story of the brave women who brought down the kingpin of a media empire. Taking place at the height of the #MeToo movement, Bombshell relives the 2016 story of how Fox News founder Roger Ailes (played by John Lithgow) managed to perpetuate and cover-up a culture of sexual harassment behind closed doors. He would eventually be toppled by three women; Megyn, Gretchen Carlson (Nicole Kidman) and producer Kayla Pospisil (Margot Robbie).
The film has made waves and it came as no surprise to see it dominating the nominations list. When she saw her name, and the names of her co-stars in the film, Charlize literally jumped up and down with excitement as she watched the nominations announcement from home.
Charlize, who was wearing nothing but a bathrobe at the time (the nominations took place in the morning), was so excited in fact that her robe slipped off and she accidentally flashed her friends as she celebrated!
Although she censored the video of her celebrations (and the incident itself), she admitted to her funny wardrobe malfunction when she wrote; “Whoops. Got a bit too excited about the Screen Actors Guild Awards nomination for our cast of Bombshell. Congrats all you beautiful humans! So grateful to have been a part of this journey with you.”
