Nominee reaction: Janet McTeer

Supporting actress, 'Albert Nobbs'

Janet McTeer, a supporting actress nominee for “Albert Nobbs,” learned of her good fortune while waiting backstage at NBC’s “Today.”

“I watched it on the telly,” she said.

For McTeer, there was never a question of whether she would take the role of Hubert Page, a woman living as a man in early 20th century Ireland. The chance to work with star Glenn Close and helmer Rodrigo Garcia, was a “bundle of loveliness.”

In the coming weeks, McTeer will be working again with Close on the DirecTV drama “Damages.”
