It's been quite an amazing 12 hours for Israeli-American actress Natalie Portman. The 35-year-old Ivy League alum received the Best Actress award at last night's 22nd annual Critics’ Choice Awards held at an airplane hangar in Santa Monica, Calif. Still recovering from last night's festivities, she woke up early this morning (5 a.m. on the West Coast) to discover that she had been nominated for a Golden Globe award.

Portman is garnering serious awards buzz for her role in "Jackie" in which she embodies the grace and elegance of former first lady Jackie Kennedy.

“It feels crazy to get rewarded for something that in itself was a rewarding experience,” she said upon accepting the trophy last night.

Portman told reporters after the show that being pregnant – the Jerusalem native and her husband are expecting their second child – is a good luck charm. The last time she received an Oscar, for “Black Swan” in 2011, she was pregnant with her son Aleph.

Showing off a baby bump at last night's ceremony, Portman looked elegant in a black-and-red patterned cape dress. Due in the spring, Portman will show off an even bigger baby bump at the Golden Globes when they are broadcast on Jan. 8, 2017 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles.
