Sally says that although the Oscars® are exciting, when you hear your name called you can "blank out." She says she doesn't remember much about giving her acceptance speech after her first win for the film Norma Rae. "You feel so much pressure to perform at a time that you're supposed to be feeling you've accomplished something," she says.
One stress Sally didn't have to worry about was facing the question, "Who are you wearing?" Nowadays, it seems that is all people care about! Sally says she bought her 1985 Oscar gown off the rack. And the jewelry? "The little heart necklace I wore cost $35."
