After a gruelling round of media appearances yesterday, she ran into the arms of her actor partner Zach Braff, 44, for some more celebrating at their West Hollywood hotel. Earlier, Florence – who has been nominated for her role as Amy March in Little Women – shared a photo of the moment she found out she was up for the gong. In the snap she is seen wearing nothing but a sheet and a huge smile in bed while looking at her phone. The caption reads: “#nominated #for a ******* oscar!!!!!!”

She also exhibited her cheeky sense of humour the day before when online trolls made digs at her age difference with Zach.
Hitting back with sass, Florence wrote: “And yet he got it.”
The actress – who has been dating the Scrubs star since last April – will be up against stiff competition when Oscars night arrives next month.
Also in her category are Laura Dern (for Marriage Story), Kathy Bates (Richard Jewell), Margot Robbie (Bombshell) and Scarlett Johansson (Jojo Rabbit).
But perhaps Florence won’t be so downhearted if she loses out to Scarlett – as the pair are co-starring in Black Widow later this year.
Florence, who plays a sister figure to Scarlet’s assassin lead, said: “I mean, the fact that I got to do a film with Scarlett was really magical.”
Whatever the result in Los Angeles on Oscars night – broadcast in Britain early on February 10 – there will no doubt be plenty of partying 5,000 miles away in Oxford.
Florence’s dad Clinton Pugh owns a restaurant there, while mum Deborah is a dancer.
