Jamie Lee Curtis reveals extremely relatable reason for declining invite to Oscar nominees’ dinner

Jamie Lee Curtis needs her rest, and that’s precisely why she declined an invite to the Oscars nominees’ dinner.

Curtis, 64, shared with The Hollywood Reporter that despite it being the first time she was nominated for an Oscar, she wouldn’t be attending the invite-only event.

“Now you might say, ‘Jamie, you’re nominated for an Academy Award, you’re going to be in the room with only nominees for the Academy Award, and I have declined.’ Why? Because mommy goes to bed early.”

The actress is nominated for best supporting actress for her role in Everything Everywhere All at Once.

She told the outlet the event started at 7:30 p.m. which meant dinner wouldn’t be served until much later.

“‘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!”

The Halloween actress also spoke with People about her nomination and what it meant to be nominated in the same category as her mother, Janet Leigh.

“You know, I didn’t think about that,” she said. “I mean, I knew it, I was aware of it. I never thought that would happen. Like my parents and their fame and their stardom was so legendary that I’ve never felt like I would be anywhere near the level. It’s a beautiful link. It’s a lineage link.”

Note to all event planners: if you want Jamie Lee Curtis at your event, plan an early start time. The actress did attend an Oscar nominees luncheon in February.
