Here’s how Dolly de Leon found out about her Golden Globe nomination
Dolly de Leon admits her Golden Globe nomination felt surreal.
Dolly de Leon marked yet another historic moment in her decades-long career after getting nominated for the Golden Globe Awards for Best Supporting Actress (Motion Picture).
Dolly earned a nomination for her role in the acclaimed film Triangle of Sadness.
She joins equally-talented actors in the list such as Angela Bassett for Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Kerry Condon for The Banshees of Inisherin, Jamie Lee Curtis for Everything Everywhere All At Once, and Carey Mulligan for She Said.
In an interview with Karen Davila on Headstart, Dolly shared how she found out about her nomination.
“My daughter woke me up at 4 a.m. just to tell me I was nominated. [My children] take it very seriously,” she said.
“But at the same time, they want me to be grounded so they just make light of it and they don’t make such a big deal out of it. I don’t ever hear my children say, ‘Mommy ang galing mo.’ No, because they have to keep me on the ground,” she added.
Dolly also shared how she felt about her nomination, admitting she still couldn’t believe it.
“It’s just surreal. Most of the time I just can’t believe it. Although there are some moments where, ‘Okay this is real. This is really happening.’ And maiiyak na lang ako bigla,” she said.
Meanwhile, Dolly shared an inspiring message for all the people like her at the end of the interview.
“May this be an inspiration to everyone who is struggling every day in whatever your chosen industry is. Always remember that there is always hope as long as we keep trying to do our best and giving it our all in our chosen profession,” she said.
She went on: “Because our jobs deserve no less than our 100% heart and soul into it. If we win, this is for all us. Para sa ating mga kababayan ito. This is for every Filipino who is struggling in their day to day life. Para sa atin lahat ito. Tulung-tulungan lang tayong lahat. Para sa inyo ito.”
Apart from her Golden Globe nomination, Dolly also won the Best Supporting Performance award in the 2022 Los Angeles Film Critics Association (LACFA) Awards.
