How does Jennifer Aniston feel about not nabbing an Oscar nomination for her dramatic turn in Cake?  

"I'm the number one snubbed! That’s the silver lining!" she smiled to Ellen Degeneres in an Ellen interview airing Monday. "It hasn't even come out! That's the crazy thing — we're so shocked and amazed that we have had this much love for a movie that hasn't even been released yet."

Aniston earned SAG, Golden Globe and Critics' Choice nominations for her performance in the indie drama as a woman living with chronic pain, loss and addiction. She also took home a trophy from the inaugural People Magazine Awards and will receive the Montecito Award at the 2015 Santa Barbara International Film Festival on Jan. 30.

"What's been so incredible is the amount of people that have come out to me who are suffering with chronic pain and in this same situation," Aniston explained. "It's unbelievable how much positivity it's bringing to those who are kind of silently suffering. It's a beautiful, hopeful movie." 

Cake opens in limited theaters Jan. 23. Watch the video below.
