Oscar nominee Patricia Arquette fears she will be overcome with excitement and faint at tomorrow night's Academy Awards.

The Boyhood actress is nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category at the prestigious ceremony which will take place in Los Angeles tomorrow evening (February 22) and reveals she is extremely nervous.

Speaking ahead of the event the 46-year-old star said: ''It's the grown-up version of going to Disneyland, like, 'Look at that big statue!'

''I just hope I don't faint.''

Arquette, who is dating artist Eric White, also spoke about the moment she learned of her nomination, she said: ''I was at a restaurant and my boyfriend went to the bathroom. 

"When he left, it was like I woke up. I grabbed the kid at the table next to me and was like, 'I got nominated! For an Academy Award!' When he got back, the kid and I were jumping and screaming.''
