"To be directed by Clint Eastwood every day and to sit across the table from Morgan Freeman and watch him do what he did was a dream come true. I'm so grateful that this role came my way."

• Ever-humble Matt Damon reacts to his Oscar nod from set in London where he is shooting another Eastwood flick, The Hereafter.

Damon was previously nominated for Best Actor in Good Will Hunting, for which he won an Original Screenplay Oscar.

The 82nd annual Academy Awards, to be co-hosted by Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin, take place Sunday, March 7, and will air live on ABC starting at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
