Cardi found out she had been nominated for five Grammy awards while leaving court on Friday and her reaction was caught on the news.

Cardi B was in court on Friday December 7 on matters having to do with an alleged strip club altercation earlier this year. The rapper has had a whirlwind week, announcing her separation from husband Offset and earning five Grammy nominations for her work on Invasion of Privacy.

Cardi called her life "a movie" for the unusual way she found out she had been nominated for five Grammy awards. As she left court on Friday she was asked by a reporter how it felt to be nominated.

"I am?" she responded in the video, later asking, "how many?"
