Gal Gadot was in fine spirits this week after what some saw as a snub to the hit superhero film Wonder Woman by the Academy Awards nominations on Tuesday.

"I was very moved and touched by the feedback of all the people who were disappointed that Wonder Woman wasn't nominated," Gadot told an interviewer for Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday evening. "But we certainly never did the movie for that, and I think that you can't have it all."

Despite the fact that superhero films are rarely honored by the Motion Picture Academy, some were holding out hope that the runaway summer blockbuster would be an exception.

Gadot, attending a Revlon event Wednesday, said the film was "received in such an amazing, wonderful way, and we want to stay humble and grateful, and we're going to have another movie, so who knows!"

Speaking of sequels, interviewer Lauren Zima asked Gadot if she was thinking of expanding her family anytime soon.

"I just had a baby!" Gadot exclaimed in response, referring to 10-month old daughter Maya. Gadot and her husband, Yaron Varsano, also have a six-year-old daughter, Alma. "I'm still jet-lagged from the previous baby," she told Zima. "But my mom will be very happy with your question."
