Dame Helen Mirren said she was "delighted" to have been nominated for Best Actress for her performance as Alma Reville in Hitchcock.
This was a wonderful role, Alma Reville was more than Hitchcock's wife, in many ways she was his muse, his assistant, his editor and more, and I am proud to have had the opportunity to portray her.
There were many people involved in the making of the film, all of whom played a part in this nomination.
I would particularly like to thank my co-star Anthony Hopkins and our director Sacha Gervasi who helped me to shape Alma on to the screen.
