Watch video: Geoffrey Rush - Backstage interview (Oprah)


Geoffrey Rush: "[Colin] did the most beautiful thing... when I arrived on the red carpet. I ran over and gave him a big hug and he took a 1946 King George VI shilling out of his pocket and gave it to me as a gift.

Cute anecdote from Tom Hooper (upon receiving BEST DIRECTOR at Oscars):
Tom says being up on stage was a blur but he did remember one thing—he forgot to email back Hilary Swank! He says when the actress came onto the stage to present the Best Director award, he suddenly remembered that she had sent him a nice email that he never responded to.
"When I got up on the stage, I kissed her hello and I told her I'm sorry and how much I loved the email and she said, 'I can't believe you're using the Kodak Theatre and winning the Oscar to tell me that."

  1. It was a fabulous win. I was very happy for Colin and all of them. I haven't yet seen the movie but I know I will love it. I did see The Social Network and thought it was good but no way did I expect it to be nominated for Best Picture!
    No contest, I'd say!

  2. Oh phylly, I hope you see it soon! One good thing about its win is that it will be marketed to more cities! Although you might get the PG version which is what is supposed to be sent out (dubbing one of the funniest scenes in my opinion).
