Los Angeles: Golden Globe-winner Eddie Redmayne's first phone call post his Oscar nomination for 'The Theory of Everything' was to his new bride and both kept screaming out of joy during the conversation.
Redmayne, 33, has been nominated in the best actor category, his first nod at Oscars for his portrayal of scientist Stephen Hawking.
He is competing against Steve Carell ('Foxcatcher'), Bradley Cooper ('American Sniper'), Benedict Cumberbatch ('The Imitation Game') and Michael Keaton ('Birdman').
Redmayne and wife Hannah Bagshawe were not together when the Oscar nominations were announced on Thursday. He was in an LA hotel room while Bagshawe was back home in London at work.
"It was sort of a screaming tennis match, as it were. I don't think there were any words until she was like, 'I have to go do my accounts. But I'm too excited to work'," he said.
The 87th Oscars will be handed out on February 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood.
