Elliott currently plays a Republican ranch owner on Netflix's "The Ranch."
Sam Elliott joked that it was “about f---ing time” after he received his first ever Academy Award nomination Tuesday.
Elliott, 74, received a Best Supporting Actor nod for his role in “A Star is Born.” The actor portrays Bobby Maine, the older brother of singer Jackson Maine, who is played by the film's director Bradley Cooper.
Elliott said his first thought after getting the coveted nomination was “it's about f---ing time,” in a wisecrack to Deadline.
“Beyond that, it’s really about the work; it’s just about the creative process,” he said. “It’s great to be recognized for that, that’s really all it’s about.”
