LOS ANGELES, Jan. 24 (UPI) -- British actress Tilda Swinton described her film "Michael Clayton" as a labor of love and said she was pleased it has been recognized with Oscar nominations.

"Michael Clayton" earned an Oscar nomination for best picture, as well as nods for writer-director Tony Gilroy, composer James Newton Howard and stars Swinton, George Clooney and Tom Wilkinson.

"I am tickled pink at the nomination -- this film has been such a labor of love and I am very proud of it. I couldn't be happier for our entire cast and crew and am thrilled for Tony, George and Tom," Swinton, a nominee for best supporting actress, said in a statement issued by Warner Bros.

"It's been a long road for 'Michael Clayton' and a long road for me personally," Gilroy said in a statement. "I'm afraid I'm coming up short … trying to capture how honored and overwhelmed I am with these nominations. I'm incredibly grateful to the academy voters and to everyone involved in making the film."

Warner Bros. said it plans to re-release the movie in North American theaters Friday.
