Jessica Chastain's Oscar Nomination Reaction: Armani Crowd Applauds Surprised Star

While attending the Armani Prive show in Paris on Tuesday morning, Jessica Chastain got word that she had been nominated for her portrayal of Celia Foote in "The Help" in the Best Supporting Actress category. She was surprised, to say the least, putting her hand over her mouth in sheer joy.

In addition to celebrating with Cameron Diaz, who was sitting next to the actress, Chastain got a standing ovation from the crowd. Pretty good for someone who wasn't even walking on the runway.

Chastain had a banner 2012, between her roles in "The Help," "The Tree Of Life," "The Debt," "Texas Killing Fields," "Take Shelter," and a number of other films. This year should be equally big; she is slated for three 2012 films including "Mama," "Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted," and "Wettest County."
