Why Isn't Natalie Portman at the 2017 Oscars?

This Is Why You Won't See Natalie Portman at the Oscars Tonight

Despite a best actress nomination for her brilliant turn as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in Jackie, Natalie Portman won't be at the Oscars tonight. No, it's not because she's joined Matt Damon in feuding with the award show's host, Jimmy Kimmel. The actress is currently in the late stages of her second pregnancy, so she'll likely be enjoying the Oscars from the comfort of her couch. "Due to my pregnancy, I am unable to attend the Independent Spirit Awards and the Academy Awards," she said in a statement. "I feel so lucky to be honoured among my fellow nominees and wish them the most beautiful of weekends." This is Natalie's third Oscar nomination, following her 2010 best actress win for Black Swan.
