It's always great to be nominated for an Academy Award. But Amy Adams says that her Oscar nom means even more to her now she is a mother.

The 36-year-old star -- who has nine-month-old daughter Aviana with fiance Darren Le Gallo -- is in the running for the Best Supporting Actress accolade for her role in The Fighter and says she appreciated the honor more than when she was nominated in the same category in 2005 for Junebug and for Doubt in 2008.

She said: "I'm going to hang out with my little girl this time around. It's special because I have a daughter now, and she can see mommy and all of that.”

The Fighter – which also stars Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale -- is nominated for Oscars in seven categories, including the coveted Best Picture, and Amy is hopeful it will be a night to remember for everyone involved with the project.

She added to Entertainment Tonight online: "I'm excited to celebrate with the cast and crew of The Fighter.”

Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson and Russell Brand -- who reprized his Forgetting Sarah Marshall role as rocker Aldous Snow in last year’s movie Get Him to the Greek -- have been added to the list of presenters for the Academy Awards, which take place at Hollywood’s Kodak Theatre on Sunday.

Speaking about his invite, Russell joked on Twitter: “I am presenting an Oscar. I shall also choose the recipient. At last my work as Aldous Snow will be honoured, for best actor-ing.”
