Reese Witherspoon knows first hand what an honor it is to be nominated for an Oscar. In 2006, her incredible performance in James Mangold's drama Walk the Line won her an Academy Award for Best Actress. Nine years later, she was nominated once more, but the golden statue went to Julianne Moore.

And even though Reese Witherspoon is not on the list of this year's nominees, she decided to mark the special occasion anyway. The 41-year-old beauty took to Instagram and congratulated her fellow colleagues with a sweet post.

The Big Little Lies star posted a short video listing some of the 2018 Oscar nominees. “WOW to all these women actors’ #OscarNoms!!,” reads the caption of the post.

In her post, Reese marked all the nominees in two categories: Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress.

In the second post, Witherspoon marked several more wonderful and talented women nominated in other categories: Greta Gerwig, Emily V. Gordon, Dee Rees, and Vanessa Taylor.

As it was expected, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, The Post, Lady Bird, and I, Tonya are competing in several categories, including Best Picture and Best Actress. However, the absolute leader of this year's ceremony is Guillermo del Toro's fantasy drama The Shape of Water, which has in total 13 nominations.
