Jamie revealed that she wakes up at 4 am most mornings

Explaining why she's an early riser, Jamie said: "I love the morning. I love the idea that I control the universe in the morning. It's the time when my brain is working and it's really quiet and nobody else is up and around. 

"The only people I bother are on the east coast and they're still waking up, it's perfect," she added.

While attending the Independent Spirit Awards on Saturday evening, Jamie spoke to The Hollywood Reporter about why she won't be attending the private Oscars nominees dinner on Thursday night. "Now you might say, 'Jamie, you're nominated for an Academy Award, you're going to be in the room with only nominees for the Academy Award, and I have declined.' Why? Because mommy goes to bed early," she explained.

Savannah and Hoda both recently returned to the show following absences

"Cause 7:30 p.m. is going to be 9 before we get food, and you know what? There is nothing good happening with me after 9 p.m.," she added. "Nothing, zero!"
