The Spencer star is a first-ever nominee, and her performance as the late Princess Diana in the dream-like Pablo Larraín film has earned rave reviews from critics and audiences alike.

And now, she's reacting to the career highlight. "WOW, I wish Pablo and I were in the same country today," she said in a statement to ET. "I wish I could see his face."

"I am speechless and humbled this morning," she continued. "I am bowled over by this. I never thought in a thousand years I’d be in the company of these four incredible women. I would pay to make movies. I would make them if it was illegal. This is dream state, to share on this level."

Kristen is nominated alongside Nicole Kidman (Being the Ricardos), Olivia Colman (The Lost Daughter), Penélope Cruz (Parallel Mothers), and Jessica Chastain (The Eyes of Tammy Faye). This Oscar season's snubs included Ruth Negga (Passing) and Lady Gaga (House of Gucci).

The 31-year-old concluded, "I am so touched, and I am so grateful for the work that was generated on this film. I'm so proud to be a part of our film community. I am SO happy. It is a good day."

Following Kristen's nomination announcement, her fiancée — screenwriter Dylan Meyer — took to Twitter to celebrate the news in an adorable, cheeky way.

The couple — who began dating roughly two years ago after being acquainted for six years prior — announced their engagement in November.

"Guess I'm not gonna have to give her this anymore," she wrote, alongside a photo of a plastic Oscar award with the engraving "Best Sweetheart."

While Dylan may have to pack up the fake Oscar, she definitely deserves one for Best Fiancée!

Even as we wait to see who ultimately wins Best Actress, it's clear that Kristen has rightfully cemented her place in (filmmaking) royalty. Cheers!
