Open Post: Hosted By Jamie Lee Curtis Skipping The Oscar Nominee Dinner Because “Mommy Goes to Bed Early”

March 6, 2023 / Posted by:

Jamie Lee Curtis doesn’t give a fuck. See: the time she shit on every movie that wasn’t Everything Everywhere All At Once, her helpful reminder that Lea Michele doesn’t have a Tony, her 2019 beef with The Figi Water Girl, and the seven years she spent shilling yogurt that makes you shit. Last night, the Hollywood Reporter (via Insider) interviewed Jamie at the Independent Spirit Awards, and the actress dropped some piping hot Oscar tea: there’s a very exclusive nominee dinner this Thursday, it starts at 7:30 PM, and she’s not going. Why? Cuz “mommy goes to bed early.” And yes, JLC is mommy.

The Hollywood Reporter posted the interview to TikTok. The clip begins with Jamie announcing, “I’m gonna tell you a secret right now.” Then she gestures to her publicist, Heidi Schaeffer, off camera and says, “Heidi’s gonna be mad that I’m telling you this.” After she shares the deets of this top-secret nominee dinner (except the location, so we can’t crash), Jamie reveals she won’t be attending. She continues, via Insider:

“Now you might say, ‘Jamie, you’re nominated for an Academy Award. You’re gonna be in the room with only nominees for the Academy Award,’ and I have declined,” she said.

She continued: “Why? Because mommy goes to bed early. ‘Cause 7:30 is gonna be 9 before we get food, and you know what? There’s nothing good happening with me after 9 o’clock. Nothing. Zero!”

Here’s Jamie outing herself as an early-to-bed type:

Now, I thought the old saying was, “nothing good happens after 2:00 AM.” Or even midnight. But, at 64, mommy’s standards are a little different. I wonder what happens to Jamie once the clock strikes 9:00 PM. Does she go Gremlins-evil? Does her belly pop out? Or does she just immediately zonk out? One second she’s chatting to her fellow nominee/former Knives Out co-star Ana de Armas about what life was like in Cuba; the next, she’s headfirst in a bowl of soup, snoring like an old-timey cartoon character: “Hooonk, mimimimi. Hooonk, mimimimi…”
