Emerald Fennell brought a special guest with her to the 2021 Oscars on Sunday night.
The filmmaker — who is the first-ever British woman to be nominated for Best Director for her film “Promising Young Woman” — glowed on the red carpet as she showed off her growing baby bump.
The 35-year-old, who Page Six on Sunday confirmed was pregnant, had a great start to the night when she took home the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for the revenge-fantasy thriller.
The film also is nominated for Best Picture and Best Film Editing as well and Carey Mulligan is nominated for Best Actress for her role in the movie.
She shared with Giuliana Rancic that she got in the spirit to write the screenplay with Britney Spears’ music and “garbage pizza” and that Sunday’s awards show was “the most exciting day of [her] life.”
“It’s just, honestly, it’s all been incredible,” she gushed. “And I just never expected—none of us expected, we made this movie in 23 days—we never ever expected it to get to this stage. What has been so moving is people’s candor and the conversations it’s opened up for lots of people. It’s just really been really overwhelming but in a very positive way.”
This will be Fennell’s second child as she and her husband, Chris Vernon, welcomed their son in 2019.
Fennell was seven months pregnant with their baby boy while in production for “Promising Young Woman” and said in a recent interview that the experience “wasn’t that bad.”
She explained, “I think that’s the important thing. Like a lot of women, I was terrified that it would stop everything in its tracks. But women do much harder things—much harder things—than direct films when they’re seven months pregnant. Lots of women have done it before and will do it again, but the thing that’s important to say is that it was completely possible and it was completely fine. I was just incredibly grateful that I was working with people who were so cool about it. I think women can just do whatever they want to, really.”
