The announcement of this year’s Grammy nominations spawned typically heart-warming celebrity reactions, but unsurprisingly, Cardi B’s topped all others. Cardi found out that she received five nods while being escorted from a New York courthouse-where she'd been arraigned on misdemeanor charges.

Cardi learned that she’s a contender for, among other prizes, both Record and Album of the Year when a reporter shouted the news to her as she left court. She later tweeted the video and jokingly requested a do-over, which is totally unnecessary as her initial response was perfect.

Cardi’s Grammy nods come on the heels of not just her court case, but right after she announced her split from her husband of one year, Offset. The case that brought her to court Friday resulted from an August strip club fight, which found her charged with assault and reckless endangerment. "What a way to find out i got 5 Grammys nominations," she captioned her Instagram post of the video. "I'm tellin you my life is a movie."
