Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach were not waiting by the phone when the Oscar nominations were revealed.
Instead, they were chilling with their 10-month-old baby, Harold.
You should probably already know this, but Gerwig directed Little Women featuring Meryl Streep, Saoirse Ronan, Laura Dern, Florence Pugh, and Emma Watson. Baumbach, meanwhile, directed Marriage Story featuring Adam Driver, Scarlett Johansson, and Laura Dern.
Both movies are nominated for six Academy Awards each.
So, what was it like in the Gerwig-Baumbach household on the morning of Oscar nominations? “Well we have a 10-month-old baby who tends to get up early and so Harold woke up and Greta brought Harold in bed and we were just hanging out and not looking at anything,” Baumbach told James Corden on The Late Late Show.
“I saw from across the room, I saw your phone kept lighting up and was like, ‘Well, he’s got good news, at least,'” said Gerwig. At some point, the pair did get up to go check their phones. “We dropped the baby and ran,” Baumbach joked.
Don’t worry Harold, your time will come.
