Richard E. Grant has won rave reviews and a series of awards for his bold and brilliant supporting turn in the biting comedic biopic Can You Ever Forgive Me?. He’s rightfully relishing every moment of award season, and taking his Twitter followers along for the ride!

While some celebrities try to act like they’re super chill and totally slept through the Oscar nomination announcements, Grant was up early, eager, and ready to share his excitement.

Then he took us on a walk down memory lane.

He also took the moment to thank his co-star Melisssa McCarthy, who is nominated for Best Actress, director Marielle Heller, who has been criminally left out of the Best Director conversation, and casting director Jen Euston.

He’s taken us into the experience of award shows with a slew of photos.

A lot of actors talk about the honor and the excitement of this season, yet a lot of that talk feels like campaigning. Whereas Grant just seems sincerely tickled! And why not? He has over 100 screen credits, with films on his resume like Gosford Park, Logan, and Withnail & I, and also Hudson Hawk, Bram Stoker’s Dracula and Spice World. He’s done prestige pics, superhero movies, weirdo comedies, big swings and everything in between. And now he’s getting his Oscar moment and living for every moment of it.

However Oscar night turns out, Grant has been winning Twitter and hearts with this parade of positivity and charm. He even made fangirling over Barbra Streisand a delightful journey.

The Oscars will be held February 24. We’ll be rooting for Grant.
