Expressing her elation over the nomination, Michelle expressed, "I am overwhelmed and overjoyed with happiness! Every single person who worked on this film poured their heart and soul into it, and we are all so grateful to the Academy for recognizing so many from our EEAAO family."

"Playing Evelyn Wang has been one of the great privileges of my 40-year career. It is truly the role of a lifetime. Thank you to Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert for seeing me and for this opportunity, I will forever cherish this moment," she added.

On the other hand, her movie has also bagged ten nominations including Best Picture, Best Director for Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert, as well as two Best Supporting Actress nominations for Jamie Lee Curtis and Stephanie Hsu.
