Alicia Vikander has a lot to celebrate right now.

Playing Eddie Redmayne's wife in The Danish Girl and a mechanical being in Ex Machina, Alicia Vikander has garnered a lot of attention in the past year.

So much, in fact, that Alicia Vikander has been nominated for best actress and best supporting actress in both the British Academy Film Awards, also known as the BAFTA's, the US Golden Globes.

The Golden Globes will be held on Saturday with the BAFTA's coming up in February.

This, of course, is a dream come true for Alicia Vikander, a Swedish actress, who just did her first English language film, Anna Karenina, in 2012.

After finding out about her BAFTA nominations, Alicia Vikander said that she was "truly honored" to be nominated.

She continued, "The Danish Girl and Ex Machina have been such gifts of projects for me."

She added, "The fact that both of these projects were driven from the UK, with a predominantly British cast and crew and that both these films have been so generously recognized by BAFTA today, makes this even more poignant for me."

Have you seen Alicia Vikander in The Danish Girl or Ex Machina? What did you think?
