BREAKING NEWS: Princess Caroline asks not to be considered for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, or Best Picture
The Academy Award nominations were released today, and moments before the announcement HRH Princess Caroline of Kennedy humbly withdrew her name from consideration for any of the major awards.
“I informed Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Sid Ganis that, for personal reasons, I am withdrawing my name from consideration for Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, or Best Picture,” the 51-year-old Camelot daughter said.
“I will also not accept Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, Best Score, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Foreign Film, or Best Animated Film,” Princess Caroline clarified.
“For family reasons, I have not yet decided on whether or not I wish to be considered for Best Original Song, Best Costume, or the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. As the daughter of a former president and my mother, an international fashion icon of understated grace and dignity, I feel all of these awards do rightfully belong to me, this or any year, but my family comes first, and for personal reasons after my uncle had convulsions the other day, I wish no longer to be considered for most of these awards.
“I do, however, reserve the right to demand any of them again in the future, as is my prerogative as the last surviving member of Camelot,” Princess Caroline concluded.
Academy president Ganis could not be reached for comment, but staffers noted Princess Caroline was not qualified for any of the awards to begin with, noting she was never under serious consideration for any of them, regardless of her magnanimous withdrawal early this morning.
