Jessie Buckley has admitted that she is "in complete shock" at her Oscar nomination for her role as Leda in The Lost Daughter.

Buckley was nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category, a first time nod for the 32-year-old Kerry star.

"I am in complete shock!" she said after this year's Oscars nominees were announced, adding: "The Lost Daughter is so special to me.

"To be recognised for anything connected to it is just a wild dream come true."

She also praised her co-star Olivia Colman, who was also nominated, and the Netflix film's director Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Gyllenhaal made her directorial debut from a script she adapted from the novel by Elena Ferrante, while Buckley played a younger version of Colman's character.

"And to gorgeous Olivia Colman and our leader and legend Maggie Gyllenhaal, I'm so lucky to share this ride with you incredible women," Buckley said. "Thank you."

Meanwhile, Olivia Colman said she felt "bloody brilliant" after receiving a nomination for best actress in The Lost Daughter.

"Oh my God yes. I'm so excited!" she said. "And with Maggie and Jessie, and our fellow nominees, this feeling right now is bloody brilliant.

"Thank you thank you thank thank you xxxxxx."
