Leslie Odom, Jr., Jon Batiste and Laura Pausini were among the artists who reacted with glee when their names were called as 2021 Academy Award nominees.
"What a blessed morning! We are incredibly grateful to be considered for the Academy Award for Best Original Score for @pixarsoul !," wrote The Late Show bandleader Batiste about his shared first Oscar nomination, which he shared with Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross.
"This was a profoundly rewarding creative collaboration filled with so much love, light and lineage. Go team go," he added.
