The Sisi & I actress recently appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and opened up about her nomination for Anatomy of a Fall. During the interview, she revealed how she almost missed the announcement streaming of her nomination. Hüller explained that she had to take out the piling trash from her home and arrived only at the moment when her nomination was announced. Hüller told Jimmy Kimmel Live!:

“I almost missed it. I wanted to watch it. I wanted to watch the stream and I had to bring away a lot of trash from my house. Because things are piling up sometimes and everybody’s really busy. So I went to a place where I could bring it and I almost missed it. I literally arrived in the minute.”

Jimmy Kimmel was confused by the whole situation and asked Hüller whether she couldn’t wait for the announcement streaming to be over to take out the garbage. When she replied that she couldn’t wait, Kimmel humorously asked her how bad the garbage situation was. She revealed that she had to go someplace else to manage the garbage disposal situation, which really couldn’t wait. When asked if she was a tidy person, the Requiem actress responded that some would say so.
