Jessica Biel Made Justin Timberlake Oscar Nom Sweeter


Justin Timberlake was nominated for an Oscar and all he can talk about is his goddamn adorable family.

The “Can't Stop the Feeling!” singer co-wrote the song for the “Trolls” soundtrack with Max Martin and Karl Johan Schuster, though it was Jessica Biel who alerted JT to his nomination.

He told Deadline,

Aw! Justin sounds like every middle schooler who's ever checked a cast list for “Annie” and walked away with a GOOD orphan role. Like Molly. Or the mean one.

He isn't getting his hopes too high, though. The former *NSYNC-er is up against the likes of Sting, Lin-Manuel Miranda and all those jazz guys from “La La Land” (JK, Justin Hurwitz, Benj Pasek and Justin Paul. I see you).

He told the site,

Still, winning an Oscar wouldn't be the wildest next step for the four-time Emmy winner and nine-time Grammy winner.
