"This is a huge honor and I'm pretty much stunned. To be in a category with three women I respect so much - and one I've never heard of but I'm sure is also great (Meryl Streep?) - is just incredible," the "Birdman" star said in a statement to ABC News.
"The fact that these awards are voted on by other actors makes it even more exciting. As a thank you, I hope to work with every single one of them one day in a giant, one-take movie I'm planning, starring this upstart Meryl Streep."
