However the Academy rates his work in The Messenger, Woody Harrelson has already earned one very special endorsement: that of his mother Diane.
In an interview set to air Wednesday, Harrelson, 48, tells Ellen DeGeneres that his mom was thrilled that he received a Best Supporting Actor nomination this year.
"I got a note from my mom, and she said, 'You finally arrived. You've been nominated in the same category with Christopher Plummer,' " Harrelson says on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "So, I got my mom's approval, which is enough, you know what I mean? I don't need a statue."

Woody Harrelson turned a night of honoring Javier Bardem into an opportunity
to roast his No Country for Old Men costar instead.
"When I first met Javier, he was doing some funny thing with his voice, and I realized at the SAG Awards... he's Spanish!" cracked Harrelson. "I always thought he was Mexican. No, I'm kidding. I thought he was Argentine."
Harrelson was on hand Monday night to help present Bardem with the Montecito Award at the annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival, which goes to a performer who has given a series of standout performances.
