Kirsten Dunst was in full mom mode when she learned about her first Oscar nomination for “The Power of the Dog.”

“I was watching the (announcement) livestream on my phone and I guess mine was behind, because my manager called me and was like, ‘You got nominated!’ ” Dunst told USA TODAY shortly after Tuesday’s nominations, where she is up for best supporting actress. “He was crying and I was crying. I was just in bed with my kids watching cartoons. I think they freaked out a little bit because they were like, ‘Why is Mommy crying?’ “

In a happy twist, Dunst’s fiancé Jesse Plemons, her “Power of the Dog” co-star, earned a surprise nod for best supporting actor, too.

When Plemons got nominated, “I screamed,” Dunst recalls. “It was like I could release my joy more with Jesse’s nomination than my own even, for some reason? I just can’t believe that we both got nominated together for the same movie. It sounds like an old-fashioned thing that wouldn’t happen now, you know what I mean? Like the Old Hollywood days of, ‘Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton were nominated…” (Laughs.) It feels amazing to have that as a family and for our families. Everyone is so excited.”

“The Power of the Dog” leads this year’s Oscar nods with 12 including best picture and best director (Jane Campion), as well as additional acting noms for Benedict Cumberbatch, in best actor, and Kodi Smit-McPhee, in best supporting actor.

Plemons, 33, first worked with Dunst, 39, in FX anthology series “Fargo” in 2015 and the two started dating not long after. They now share two children: Ennis, 3, and James, 9 months.

Dunst and Plemons are currently in Austin, Texas, where he is shooting HBO Max series “Love & Death.” Plemons was on set when nominations were announced, although Dunst FaceTimed him when they got the news.

Although they have no set plans to celebrate, “maybe we can go out and get a drink or something, if he doesn’t have to work tomorrow,” Dunst says.

Despite critically acclaimed performances in “Melancholia,” “The Virgin Suicides” and “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” this marks the first Oscar nomination for Dunst, who was 11 years old when she co-starred with Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in 1994’s “Interview with the Vampire.”

“I’m proud of what I’ve done in my life and it just feels really nice to be acknowledged by the actors in the academy,” says Dunst, who also voted for Plemons. “This kind of thing doesn’t happen very often in someone’s career: to be a part of a movie that everyone gets behind. And then to have all of us be nominated, it’s just insane. It’s not normal.

“And the fact that we get to take this ride with Jane Campion,” who made Oscar history Tuesday as the first woman to be nominated twice for best director (after 1993’s “The Piano”). “To be by her side during this excitement has been one of the best parts for me.”

Of this year’s other nominees, Dunst says she’s most excited for Paul Thomas Anderson’s coming-of-age dramedy “Licorice Pizza,” which received nods for best picture, director and original screenplay.

“It was one of my favorite movies of the year,” Dunst says. “The opening Nina Simone song with (Alana Haim and Cooper Hoffman) getting to know each other? That’s filmmaking to me. I so enjoyed myself watching that movie.”

After teaming for Academy Award winner “Ex Machina” and the upcoming project “Men,” A24 has announced Alex Garland’s latest movie, “Civil War.”

Kirsten Dunst is set to star alongside Wagner Moura, Stephen McKinley Henderson and Cailee Spaeny in the action film written and directed by Garland. Aside from the fact that the film is set in a near future America, plot details are being kept under wraps.

In 2016, Garland received an Academy Award nomination for best original screenplay for “Ex Machina,” which also won an Oscar for achievement in visual effects. Garland followed the critically acclaimed movie with 2018’s “Annihilation” and the FX series “Devs.” His upcoming projects include “Men,” starring Jessie Buckley and Rory Kinnear, which A24 will release later this year.

A24 will handle the global release of the film and produce alongside Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich of DNA and Gregory Goodman. DNA previously teamed with Garland for “Ex Machina,” “Annihilation” and “Men.” Goodman’s past producing credits include “Three Kings,” “8 Mile,” “Captain Phillips” and “22 July.”

Dunst most recently earned a SAG award nomination for her critically acclaimed performance as Rose Gordon in Jane Campion’s “The Power of the Dog.” Over the course of her career, Dunst has given notable performances in award-winning films including “Interview With the Vampire,” “Drop Dead Gorgeous,” “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” “Hidden Figures,” “Marie Antoinette,” “Melancholia,” the “Spider-Man” franchise and “The Virgin Suicides,” among many others. In 2016, she received a Primetime Emmy nomination for her role as Peggy Blumquist in “Fargo”.

Moura starred as Pablo Escobar on “Narcos,” for which he was nominated for a Golden Globe, and will next be seen opposite Elisabeth Moss in “The Shining Girls” for Apple TV Plus. He also wrote, directed and produced “Marighella,” which premiered at the Berlin Film Festival.

Earlier this year, Henderson starred in Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” and Halle Berry’s “Bruised” and he currently appears as a series regular on Garland’s “Devs” for FX. The actor’s prolific stage and screen resume includes “Lady Bird,” “Manchester by the Sea,” “The True Adventure of Wolfboy,” “Native Son,” “The Blacklist,” “Fear the Walking Dead,” “Run” and “Fences” (both the Paramount feature film directed by Denzel Washington and the 2010 Broadway revival of August Wilson’s play, for which he earned a Tony Award nomination). Henderson is also an OBIE Award and Lucille Lortel Award winner.

Spaeny most recently appeared in “Mare of Easttown,” with a list of credits including “On the Basis of Sex,” “Bad Times at the El Royale” and “How It Ends.” Spaeny will next be seen as Anna Eleanor Roosevelt in the upcoming series “The First Lady.”

Garland is represented by WME and Goodman, Genow, Schenkman, Smelkinson & Christopher.

Dunst is represented by UTA, Management 360, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman, LLP; Moura is represented by WME, Black Rabbit Media, and Johnson Shapiro Slewett & Kole; Henderson is represented by Stewart Talent and EKG Management; and Spaeny is represented by WME, Sugar23 and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman.
