The Swansea-born star, whose second child with husband Michael Douglas is due in April, said she planned to be at the Academy Awards ceremony on March 23, where she's up for best supporting actress for the musical Chicago.

"They can roll me in on a stretcher if they have to," the 33-year-old said after nominations for the 75th annual Oscars were announced.

Chicago earned a leading 13 nominations, including best picture, director for Rob Marshall, best actress for Renee Zellweger, best supporting actor for John C Reilly and a second supporting-actress honour for Queen Latifah.

"I just can't wait," she said. "I hope this baby doesn't come on the same night. That'll be just my luck to get all dressed up and ready to go, and the pains will start."
