Only one show in history has been allowed to broadcast from the set of the Kodak Theatre, home of the Academy Awards®: The Oprah Winfrey Show! For the second year in a row, the winners stopped by to chat just hours after accepting their awards. Not only did best actor, Jamie Foxx, and best actress, Hilary Swank, stop by, but so did first-time Oscar® host Chris Rock.
Oprah: Hilary, you've had one Oscar® before. Did your life change afterward?
Hilary: You know, not really. Obviously there's this respect that happens, but I'm the same girl that walks my dogs and cleans up after my bunny and does my laundry.
Oprah: What do you think is going to happen, Jamie?
Jamie: I already know what's happening for me. When I walked to the little screening that I had [after the ceremony], it was all of the brothers and all of the homies. I walked in with that trophy and it was literally, like, "Yo, dog, let me hold that." And they were taking pictures with it and it was like they didn't want to take pictures with me at all.
Oprah: This is an opportunity to reach the world, in a way, in a moment in time. Did you feel that for yourself?
Chris: Yeah, it's weird. I got calls when I was driving here. Ireland called. My booking agent said, "We've got to do Europe right now!"...Jude Law jokes don't work everywhere, but when you talk about men and women and relationships—it's all over the world. Every woman in Ireland is mad her husband doesn't spend enough time with her and the kids.
