Patricia Arquette is worried she might faint at the Oscars.

The 'Boyhood' actress is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at the prestigious ceremony in Los Angeles on Sunday (22.02.15), and admits she is very nervous.

Asked if she is excited about the event, the 46-year-old star said: "It's the grown-up version of going to Disneyland, like, 'Look at that big statue!

"I just hope I don't faint."

Patricia, who is dating artist Eric White, was shocked when she was informed about her nomination and claims it took her two days to process the news.

She said: "I was at a restaurant and my boyfriend went to the bathroom. When he left, it was like I woke up. I grabbed the kid at the table next to me and was like, 'I got nominated! For an Academy Award!' When he got back, the kid and I were jumping and screaming."

The 'CSI: Cyber' star, who has son Enzo, 26, and daughter Harlow, 11, from previous relationships, says they are also "excited" about her success.

But she added: "They give me high-fives, which is a lot to get from them."

The actress - who spent 12 years filming the movie - hopes her family will expand in the next 12 years and already knows the kind of grandmother she wants to be.

She told Us Weekly magazine: "I may be a grandma, and I'll babysit with grandma rules, like 'Let's stay up all night!' We'll watch cartoons!"
