Aniston missed out on an Oscar nomination for Best Actress

While appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday (Jan 19th), Aniston was quickly asked by the host how she felt after her Oscar snub for Best Actress for her performance in the gritty drama.

"The Oscar nominations were last week, but I got to say that I am shocked you were not nominated for an Oscar," DeGeneres told her. "And everyone else is, it actually has to feel good because there are so many people talking about the fact that you didn't get nominated. That in itself has to be a win for you."

"Yeah. I'm the No. 1 snubbed," Aniston mused. "That's the silver lining."

As the 'Friends' alum received Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild and Critic's Choice nominations, it is even more of a surprise that she failed to be included in the Oscar Best Actress category. The nominated actresses were Marion Cotillard, Rosamund Pike, Felicity Jones, Reese Witherspoon and Julianne Moore.

While explaining how she tackled the role of Clare Simmons - a woman who suffers from chronic pain after a car accident, Ellen said to Aniston that "you really disappeared and I did not see my friend Jen in this at all."

"It's a beautiful, hopeful movie," Aniston quipped.

The talented actress also told Access Hollywood during Thursday's Critics' Choice Awards that two of the nominated actresses reached out to her to show their support. "(Reese Witherspoon) sent me such a sweet email, as did Julianne (Moore)," she said. "They are all amazing women, but you know, we're all rooting for each other and it doesn't take away the work that was done. So it's really, really nice."
