'American Sniper' widow preps for 'surreal' Oscars amid murder trial

Real-Life 'American Sniper' Wife Gets Emotional at 2015 Oscars

As Bradley Cooper and Sienna Miller hit the Oscars red carpet on Sunday, they'll be joined by a very important member of the American Sniper family.

Chris Kyle's widow Taya Kyle shared an emotional Facebook post on her late husband's page on Sunday morning, revealing that she was in Los Angeles preparing for a "surreal" Oscars ceremony.

"I don't like whining and I believe in the power of recognizing blessings even when the chips are down," wrote Taya, who is currently in the middle of Eddie Ray Routh's trial following her husband's 2013 murder.

"I wanted to support everyone who made this movie representing real veteran families, but I didn't think I had the energy to show up at the Oscars, let alone be presentable," she confessed. "So, I find myself in a surreal position...like Cinderella who scrubs the floors but has a fairy Godmother (Warner Brothers) who got me on a plane and had a dress and jewelry and even the shoes and spanx waiting for me."

The 40-year-old mother of two will attend the Academy Awards with her sister, whom she says will "hold my hand and dry my tears from what is sure to be an emotional evening." After the show, Taya will board a red-eye flight back to Texas and back to the trial.

Routh stands accused to shooting and killing Kyle and his friend, Chad Littlefield, at a Texas gun range in February 2013. The alleged incident is referenced in the film American Sniper, which is nominated for several Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Actor for Cooper.

"It's by the Grace of God and the support of people like you who literally give me the energy to get out of bed each day and see the beauty through the ashes of my life," Taya wrote on Sunday.

"I hope the same for all of you. We all struggle and we all have to find the strength to fight another day. I know I am not alone. The details may be different but our stories of fighting on, finding the strength to help ourselves and accepting the help of others when we can ... Our constant fight to get on a path to renewal is always common ground - it's the human condition."
