BERLIN — Judi Dench won’t be at the Academy Awards ceremony; instead, she will be watching from bed. ‘‘I can’t go to the Oscars because I’m going to have a knee operation,’’ said Dench, who’s a best-actress nominee for her performance in ‘‘Notes on a Scandal.’’ ...

She presented the movie Monday at the Berlin Film Festival.

‘‘Don’t put money on me, because you’ll lose it,’’ Dench joked when asked about her chances on Oscar night Feb. 25.

She’s up against Kate Winslet, Penelope Cruz, Meryl Streep and the heavily favored Helen Mirren. But whatever happens, she said, ‘‘I shall watch and cheer from my bed.’’

The six-time Oscar nominee won as best supporting actress for playing Queen Elizabeth I in 1998’s ‘‘Shakespeare in Love.’’
