And also, watch the red carpet interview and Best Actor presentation videos:
Kate Winslet was a bulldozer for Oscar winner Jeff Bridges. The actress, a winner last year for The Reader, presented Bridges with his Crazy Heart trophy and pulled him backstage, waving aside stagehands and declaring Bridges needed the place “to say other stuff, to thank the people he didn’t thank out there.”
She was referring to the academy’s thank-you cam, an Internet-only camera that records winners’ voluminous lists of names of people who need to be mentioned but were left out onstage. It’s meant to encourage winners to give more heartfelt speeches rather than read a litany of managers, agents, lawyers, friends and family.
“And here,” Winslet said, thrusting the open envelope with his name into his hands, “don’t lose this!”
Clearly, her take-charge attitude came from being a veteran.
