Portman is nominated for Best Actress at the 83rd Academy Awards for portraying the dual role of Nina Sayers and The Swan Queen in Black Swan.
I am so honored and grateful to the Academy for this recognition. It is a wonderful culmination of the ten-year journey with Darren to make this film. Making Black Swan is already the most meaningful experience of my career, and the passion shown for the film has completed the process of communication between artists and audience. I am so thankful for the support we have received and I share this honor with the entire cast and crew of the film, especially Darren Aronofsky.
