Oscar nominations: Hailee Steinfeld can get any autograph she wants now

Hailee Steinfeld nominated for best supporting actress While we're sure Javier Bardem is jubilant over his dark horse best actor nod, and imagine Mila Kunis is dancing her own swan song after her Oscars snub — the Ministry can't help but wince with happiness for Hailee Steinfeld.

The tough young thing in heritage gear more than held her own with Matt Damon and Jeff Bridges in the Coen Brothers' nominated flick "True Grit."

Over the past weeks of Golden Globes hoopla and much awards press, Steinfeld let it slip she had an awkward encounter with "Glee" actress Lea Michele. When she was on the Paramount lot auditioning for the film that's now given her a supporting actress nomination, Hailee asked Lea for an autograph and was denied.

"I walked up to her and asked for her autograph, but she walked by and a guy came and said, 'Sorry, now's not a good time!' " Steinfeld said in a magazine interview.

Michele quickly addressed the situation, saying, "The 'Glee' schedule is so jam-packed that the [production assistant] probably pulled me so that I wouldn't be late to set. I never meant to hurt her feelings. She's an extraordinary talent, and I look forward to meeting her one day."

All's well that ends well — but we dare say Steinfeld will get any autograph she wants now.

OMG. That 'snub' or whatever you want to call it was an accident. OLD NEWS. Why can't people give Lea a break? It seems the media loves to pick on every little thing that happens involving her and paint her in a bad light. What exactly did she do that was so wrong? She was at WORK. She was busy, and she isn't supposed to be signing autographs while WORKING. God people, give the girl a break.

Stop with this story already. Lea was at work and even Hailee said it was bad timing. Really stop it already Lea even apologized for but she was at work and as the PA said it wasn't a good time.

Hailee word of warning they are building you up now just like they built up Lea. But be careful the media may turn on you too if you get popular. Why they insist on trying to make Lea out like a devil is beyond me.

I guess Lea is the only actor who has been unable to grant an autograph due a busy schedule or other duties.

Time to stop picking on Lea. Congratulation Hailee sorry this writer felt the need bring this up yet again.
