Charlize Theron told OnTheRedCarpet.com that no, she was not woken up around 5 a.m. right after it was announced she is nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical for her role in the comedy film 'Young Adult.'

'People were actually really cool about just sending emails and texts,' Theron said about her Golden Globe nod. 'Not that I would have minded (if they called me), honesty. Btu it was lovely. It was a lot of love and a lot of excitement. Really a nice way to wake up.'

Theron won a Golden Globe as well as an Oscar for her role in the 2003 movie 'Monster.' She has been nominated for a Golden Globe four times in total.
