The widow of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle walked the red carpet Sunday night to attend the Academy Awards where "American Sniper," the film about her late husband, is nominated for several awards, including Best Picture.
Kyle posted an emotional note on Facebook ahead of the ceremony.
"I didn’t think I had the energy to show up at the Oscars, let alone be presentable,” Taya Kyle wrote on Facebook Sunday afternoon. "I don’t like whining and I believe in the power of recognizing blessings even when the chips are down. I wanted to support everyone who made this movie representing real veteran families."
She thanked Warner Brothers, a studio she called, "exceptional to work with in every aspect" and a "fairy [Godmother] for a regular woman who has kids, a murder trial for her beloved and dear friend," to handle at once, adding that she has been, "honestly exhausted."
Chris Kyle and his friend, Chad Littlefield, were killed on Feb. 2, 2013, at a Texas shooting range.
