We have a feeling that 2017 is going to be one of Justin Timberlake's best years yet. Ever since Timberlake's song "Can't Stop the Feeling" was released, it blew up everywhere—giving the singer a Golden Globe nomination and a huge win at the People's Choice Awards. Yesterday, the Academy Award nominations were released, and more good news danced its way over to JT—he got his first Oscar nomination! How did he find out this exciting news? From wife Jessica Biel!
"I was recovering from a late night at the studio so when I woke up there was a whirlwind of emails and texts, but my wife broke the news to me which was even sweeter," he told Deadline. "We were just giddy this morning, and I'm still like in a tornado. I'm just really honored and grateful they recognized the song. I've honestly been walking around today thinking, 'Did that happen?'" What better way to find out this news than from the person you love!
There was no doubt that the catchy beat, which was inspired by their son Silas, would gain some recognition. "I'm humbled by the whole thing," he continued. "I think most of all, I was excited the whole year that people responded to the song….For the Academy to recognize this song? Wow. Yeah, I'm pinching myself."
What can't this man do? Now we know why Jessica is still searching for any flaw he may have (spoiler alert: there are none). Congrats on your first Oscar nomination JT, we're excited to see you and Jessica on the red carpet!
