Oscar nominations: Natalie Portman's 10-year plan
Natalie Portman, a 2004 Oscar nominee for "Closer," devoted much of her life to the making of "Black Swan," for which she received a lead actress Oscar nomination. It seems that investment has paid off.
“I am so honored and grateful to the academy for this recognition," Portman said in a statement. "It is a wonderful culmination of the 10-year journey with Darren [Aronofsky] 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.”
