Her film, The Menu, was nominated for the Original Screenplay award. Taylor-Joy Stars across from Ralph Fiennes and Nicholas Hoult in the story of an exclusive dinner on a private island gone sideways. When asked if she got starstuck by Fiennes in an interview with USA Today, the actress said, “Yes, but only at the very end.”

She continued, “My subconscious does this thing where if I can't deal with information, it just stores it like a squirrel with a nut for winter, until there's a moment I can deal with it. And so with Ralph, we just became really good friends and it wasn't a big deal at all. And then the second the film ended, it was just, ‘Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god! I have to call my mom!’ So he was very, very gracious about it.”

She also raved about the movie itself.

“I'm very good at guessing what the ending of a film is or what the twist is going to be,” Taylor-Joy said of her role in the movie. “But when I read The Menu, every time I turned the page, I was like, ‘Ooh! I was not expecting that.’ And I wanted to be a part of that original (storytelling).”
