Jamie, who also shared an emotional message about her trans daughter Ruby while answering press questions following her win, appeared to leave the Oscars soon after picking up her newly engraved award. And it turns out this was in order to get home to her adorable rescue pup Runi, as well as to avoid staying up too late.

The actress revealed her additional reasoning in an Instagram post which she shared to Instagram on Monday, writing: "The best greeting last night was from my beautiful @perfect_pet_rescue pup, Runi, who truly couldn't give a[n expletive] about the statue I was holding."

"I love the morning. I love the idea that I control the universe in the morning," the SAG award winning actress elaborated. "It's the time when my brain is working and it's really quiet and nobody else is up and around," she said.

Jamie's sleep habits were in focus following an interview she did with The Hollywood Reporter, during which she revealed how her fondness of an early bedtime had prevented her from wanting to attend a pre-Oscars nominee dinner party.
