Oscar Winners Have Plenty of Company In the Press Room
The big winners at last night's Oscars went from the star-studded stage right into the press room to speak to assorted reporters about their honours. Melissa Leo was the first actor of the evening to discuss her new gold, though her priority was apologising for using a curse word during her acceptance speech. Best supporting actor Christian Bale, however, confessed to missing her colourful remark since he was off at the bar with his wife. Other winners like musician Randy Newman and writer Aaron Sorkin also spoke, with The Social Network scribe saying he's going to think long and hard about his next movie project. The Academy Awards' most anticipated honours went to Natalie Portman and Colin Firth, and the actress said that her baby was kicking during the musical numbers like Gwyneth Paltrow's "Coming Home." Colin, meanwhile, joked that his invitation to Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding was lost in the mail, and apparently was still itching to celebrate by dancing.
