Tilda Still in Shock About Win
02.24.08 by REELZ
Tilda Swinton is backstage at the Kodak discussing her win with press. She looks kinda happy and, honestly, kind of tired, which she admits to. Her dress is interesting to say the least, sort of a velvety hefty bag.
When she won the Oscar® for Best Supporting Actress here at the Kodak a few minutes ago, her look was one of total shock. Asked about this moment, this was her response: "I had a reverse Zoolander moment where i though i heard someone else's name and then sloooowly heard my own. I'm still recovering from that moment..."
During her acceptance speech, she mentioned that she was giving her Oscar® away to her agent. Surely she was kidding, right? “I’ve given it to my agent,” Swinton clarifies. “Not only does he deserve it, but he really does look like this,” Tilda says with a straight face holding up her newly minted gold naked man.
So who did she think was going to win if it wasn’t going to be her? “I kind of thought Ruby Dee would win, but frankly, anyone but myself.”
