"Eighth Grade" breakout Elsie Fisher scored her first-ever Golden Globes nomination Thursday for actress in a comedy or musical.

Q: You shared your first reaction on Twitter?

A: Um, yeah, this is incredible and insane. I felt like I owed it to Twitter to give them my first reaction. My Twitter squad has been there when I make my crappy jokes.

Q: Is that where you found out about your nomination?

A: No, I woke up at 5:38 right before it got announced. I didn't have an alarm set or anything. I went onto the live stream and I started watching it and my dad shouted from the other room as soon as it got announced. He just shouted, 'Yeah!' in a really loud voice that almost woke me more than anything had at that point. He was very excited.

Q: You're in 10th grade now. Do you have school today?

A: I'm doing kind of a homeschool thing. There's a campus for the program I'm attending, but it's pretty nice. I do appreciate a lot of aspects of public school, but I would have already missed a bunch of school -- like a month or so. I am, in fact, actually going to school today. I have to take tests and do some work. A math test and P.E.

Q: Ugh, P.E. is brutal.

A: It's actually really interesting, because I'm doing online school P.E., so I have to take a written standardized test.

Q: You don't have to run around a track or anything?
