Ana de Armas was in tears as she received a mind-blowing 14-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival.
De Armas stars in Blonde, Netflix's biopic about the late icon, Marilyn Monroe.
The film has its world premiere at the film festival, with fans saying that de Armas is 'gonna get an Oscar' for her performance.
Watch de Armas react to the incredible standing ovation below:
For those not familiar, Blonde, directed by Andrew Dominik, follows Monroe 'from her volatile childhood as Norma Jeane, through her rise to stardom and romantic entanglements'.
Netflix has said that the film 'blurs the lines of fact and fiction to explore the widening split between her public and private selves'.
While the film was initially due for released in 2021 but was since delayed and is expected to drop on the streaming service on 23 September.
The world premiere took place at the Venice Film Festival yesterday (8 September).
Following the premiere, the film received a massive 14-minute standing ovation, with a delighted de Armas bursting into tears.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to comment on the reaction, with one fan writing: "ana de armas received a 14-minute standing ovation. I KNOW SHE IS GONNA GET AN OSCAR THIS YEAR."
While another added: "Best actress win coming."
A third joked that the standing ovation was a good way to gauge how decent a film was: "Standing ovation time is the new rotten tomatoes."
Still, some didn't quite get the need for such a long standing ovation, with one person writing: "14 mins is ridiculous. Heck, even the six that Brendan Frasier got it borderline obnoxious. 30-60 seconds is more than enough."
Still, a lot of prep went into the film, and de Armas deserves a lot of credit.
She told The Times: "It took me nine months of dialect coaching, and practicing and some ADR sessions [to get the accent right]. It was a big torture, so exhausting. My brain was fried."
The film caught headlines earlier this year for receiving a rare 'adults only' rating.
It was deemed unsuitable for younger audiences by the Motion Picture Association.
The age rating is said to be due to the film's explicit sexual content, with director Andrew Dominik previously noting that he expected as much for the age rating.
The film will be released on Netflix this month, and we can't wait.
