Gossip Cop has your backstage Oscar dish.
Check out what you didn’t see on the show!
Melissa Leo (Best Supporting Actress - The Fighter) apologized for dropping an f-bomb during her acceptance speech, saying, it was “a very inappropriate place to use (those words)… I apologize to anyone that they offend.”
Leo was told in the press room backstage that she was the first person in the history of the Academy Awards to drop an f-bomb during the telecast.
Leo’s co-star Christian Bale (Best Supporting Actor – The Fighter) was at the bar with Dicky Eklund – the real-life boxer he portrayed – and missed his Leo’s f-bombed acceptance speech. Bale said he was pounding on the door, “and they wouldn’t let us in.”
On the subject of f-bombs…
Aaron Sorkin (Best Adapted Screenplay – The Social Network) said backstage, “Tonight I’m going to enjoy this; tomorrow I’m going to start something new.” Sorkin also noted Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has been a “good sport” about the film.
A less good sport was one of the Oscar-winning editors of The Social Network, who was backstage when he heard The King’s Speech won for Best Director…. and booed!
On a lighter note…
Natalie Portman revealed her baby was kicking “a lot” during the song portion of the evening – leading her to conclude that s/he will definitely be a dancer! So will she be naming her child Oscar? “Definitely out of the question,” she said while laughing.
Speaking of dancing, Colin Firth kidded that his invite to the royal wedding “must be lost in the post,” and said, “I’ll be tracing it soon.” When asked what he thought about the new PG-13 cut of The King’s Speech, he said, “I am against it… I think the film has its integrity as it stands.”
Helena Bonham Carter was the epitome of a well-mannered Brit when dealing with press. When tired of a reporter’s questions backstage, she simply pointed to her bracelet, which had a tiny hour glass on it, and said demurely, “time is up.”
And so is ours…
