Jamie thanks Oprah for her encouragement at the ceremony. "You have no idea how incredible it was to have you behind me," he tells Oprah. "Every time I looked back there was that energy."
Before Jamie's award was announced, Oprah handed him a tissue. "I'm thinking," Jamie says, "'Does she think I'm going to cry?' But she said, 'Give me that gum!' And then she said something very special. She said, 'When you go up there, let us be proud when we look back on this day.'"
