Annette Bening On Oscars: I'll Vote For Myself For An Academy Award

Posted: Updated:

She's up for Best Actress, but Annette Bening is pulling no punches about her Oscar vote.

As a four time Academy Award nominee, Bening is a member of the Academy and an Oscar voter. She's up this year for her work in "The Kids Are All Right," and in an interview with Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, she made clear who would get her vote: herself.

"Absolutely," she said. "You'd have to be a fool."

Bening is buzzed about as a potential spoiler for frontrunner Natalie Portman, star of "Black Swan."

The pair talked more about the Oscars -- no surprise, she feels honored and lucky to be there -- as well as her on-screen children.
