Take it from Melissa Leo - winning an Oscar isn't as easy as it looks.
As "The Fighter" star accepted the Academy Award for best supporting actress, she was in such shock she asked presenter Kirk Douglas to pinch her.
"I know there are a lot of people who said nice things to me for several months now, but I’m just shaking in my boots here," Leo told the audience, before issuing a stream of thank you's, among them to "Fighter" director David O. Russell; her co-stars Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale and Amy “my sweet sister” Adams.
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Camille Grammer joined “Showbiz Tonight” on the red carpet for the “Road to Gold” on Sunday as the stars began to arrive for the Oscars.
Grammer is no stranger to attending a high-pressure situation, and recalled what it was like to walk the red carpet at last year's Tony awards with former spouse Kelsey Grammer, even though they were in the midst of a break-up.
“Once we got out of the limo, the cameras start, and you just smile. You smile and you make your way through it. I made the best of it,” the reality star said. "Certain interviewers were asking questions, and I kept saying to Kelsey, we've been married for 13 wonderful years, and we love each other so much, isn't this wonderful Kels?"
Newlyweds Russell Brand and Katy Perry clearly have at least one thing in common: They're both big fans of bringing along family members to big red carpet events.
At the 53rd annual Grammy awards, Perry brought along her grandmother, and at Sunday's 83rd annual Academy Awards, Russell Brand strolled down the red carpet alongside his mother.
While you could say she was his date, Brand will quickly correct you: "We’re not dating…there are literally laws against that," he told CNN. Tonight, she's his "companion."
And if there's anyone who knows Brand's particular brand of humor, it's his mom. "I’m incredibly proud [of him]," she told CNN. And when it comes to his occasionally outlandish remarks, they don't surprise her. "To me, he’s playing a character," she said. Plus, "He’s funny."
"The Fighter" star Melissa Leo is going up against her co-star Amy Adams for the best supporting actress Oscar at Sunday's Academy Awards, but Leo told CNN that there isn't a bit of competition between the two.
Their battle for Oscar is "completely friendly," Leo said. "No competition whatsoever."
The actress added that Adams "was an angel by my side" while the two were filming. "I learned all kinds of things about acting, about life."
