Jenny Slate might be the most talked-about Dartmouth resident after the Academy Awards nominations came out Tuesday morning.

The actress, comedian and author has a colorful role in the most-nominated film of the year, the ensemble-driven sci-fi success Everything Everywhere All at Once.

The Milton native, also known for her work on Parks and Recreation and Saturday Night Live, plays a badass in the hard-to-describe film. Here she is at work in the laundromat that is the focus of the story:

Looks like she kicked butt in that scene.

Slate lives half the year in Los Angeles and the other half in Dartmouth with her husband, Davoll's General Store owner Ben Shattuck, and daughter Ida. Last fall, Slate appeared at Zeiterion Performing Arts Center in New Bedford for a screening of her film Marcel The Shell With Shoes On, based on a popular internet character she created in the early 2000s.

Everything Everywhere All at Once is nominated for 11 Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Actress for Michelle Yeoh.

If you are like me, you might not have heard of the movie but it has definitely made a splash. With a relatively small budget of $25 million, it ended up making just over $100 million at the box office. It was in a few film festivals before it was released to select few theaters around the globe.

Here is the official trailer for the movie:

I hope Slate will be at the awards show on the West Coast on March 12, but if not can we please make sure we get an invite to her watch party? Think of the epic catering.

Congrats to Jenny and the entire cast. Now I need to make a trip over to her hubby's store.
