7. SOUNDBITE (English) Conan O'Brien/talk show host, on how host Seth MacFarlane did: "I saw his opening which I thought was really strong and throughout the evening I thought he kept it going. I thought he was very poised. I thought he had good material and he was very calm and he looked like he was having a good time. To me that is the key. (Reporter: Would you ever want to host the Oscars?) I'm waiting for the Essence Awards. That's the one I want to host. Im still hanging out for that one. Why not? Why cant I host the Essence Awards? It feels like discrimination if I cant host the Essence Awards."

Leave it to actors to go on stage. Don't have to ask me twice. (Reporter: What goes on in the Vanity Fair party?)

Inside this room? You've never been inside the Vanity Fair party? It's a giant key party where everyone takes their receipts from your driver and you pop it in.At the end of the night you pull it out, separate it, and it's like, 'I'm going home with her, or him or whom ever.' You have to follow the rules because it's protocol and it's a tradition in Hollywood that you have to have a relationship. Even if it is just for one night with that person. The have to do it."

Berry too enjoyed the musical performances:

"I love Shirley Bassey, I mean she is 76 and wow. Jennifer Hudson I thought brought the house down. Just a lot of good music tonight I thought."

You could feel the energy up there and we are all so proud of him, and Grant, and George being able to pull this off and the rest of our producers who weren't on stage. Leave it to actors to go on stage. Don't have to ask me twice," he said.

More than 150 Oscar nominees gathered in sunny Beverly Hills Monday (10 FEB. 2014) to celebrate the joy of just being nominated at the motion picture academy's annual nominees luncheon.

Honorees in all 24 of this year's Oscar categories gathered at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, including Lupita Nyong'o of "12 Years a Slave," Sandra Bullock of "Gravity," and Christian Bale and Amy Adams of "American Hustle."

The guest list also included "Hustle" star Bradley Cooper; Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto of "Dallas Buyers Club"; Cate Blanchett of "Blue Jasmine"; Leonardo DiCaprio of "The Wolf of Wall Street"; and many more.

Steve Coogan and Philomena Lee, the real inspiration for his best-picture nominee "Philomena," were also there. Coogan kissed Lee on both cheeks.

Each nominee for best director was also on the guest list, including Alfonso Cuar�n, Steve McQueen and Martin Scorsese.

With the 86th Academy Awards coming in less than three weeks, the race for best picture remains a three-way contest between "American Hustle," ''Gravity" and "12 Years a Slave."

ACADEMY AWARDS ROLL OUT RED CARPET FOR MOST DIVERSE LINE-UP EVER

Once an evening of backslapping and merrymaking within the narrow confines of Hollywood, the Academy Awards this time look like a United Nations exercise in diversity.

The 79th annual Oscars Sunday feature their most ethnically varied lineup ever, with stars and stories that reflect the growing multiculturalism taking root around the globe.

Competing for best picture was Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's "Babel," a sweeping ensemble drama. The film's cast ranges from A-listers such as Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett to comparative unknowns

Adriana Barraza from Mexico and Rinko Kikuchi from Japan, who both earned supporting-actress nominations for "Babel."

Also in the running were Stephen Frears' classy British saga "The Queen," a portrait of the royal family in crisis, and Clint Eastwood's Japanese-language war tale "Letters From Iwo Jima."

Those films joined two idiosyncratic American stories nominated for best picture, Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris' road comedy "Little Miss Sunshine" and Martin Scorsese's crime epic "The Departed."

Though set among the distinctive cops and mobsters of Boston, "The Departed" had a global connection - it was based on the Hong Kong crime thriller "Infernal Affairs."

Gray clouds floated over the red carpet as limousines delivered guests to the Kodak Theatre, but the hint of rain did not diminish the enthusiasm of spectators as the likes of Spanish actress Penelope Cruz, British actress Rachel Weisz, Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal, Scottish actor James McAvoy, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Al and Tipper Gore walked the carpet.

Of the 20 acting nominees, five were black, two were Hispanic and one was Asian, while only two Americans _ Eastwood and Scorsese - were among the five best-director contenders.

With a Directors Guild of America award and other top film honors behind him, Scorsese was considered a shoo-in to earn the directing Oscar, a prize that has eluded him throughout his illustrious career.

There were clear front-runners in all four acting categories, as well: Forest Whitaker as Ugandan dictator Idi Amin in "The Last King of Scotland" and Mirren for the lead-acting trophies, Eddie Murphy and Hudson as soul singers in "Dreamgirls" for the supporting honors.

The best-picture race was up for grabs, though, with all five films in the running but many Oscar watchers generally figuring it was a three-way race among "Babel," "The Departed" and "Little Miss Sunshine."

Organizers at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences hope the suspense of the wide-open best-picture category will help offset moviegoers' relative lack of interest in the competing films.

TV ratings for the Oscars tend to be lower when fewer people have seen the top nominees. Collectively, the five best-picture nominees had drawn a total domestic theatrical audience of about 38.5 million people, about a third the number of fans who have gone to see the contenders in recent peak years when such blockbusters as "Gladiator" or "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" have won.

1. SOUNDBITE (English) Christian Bale/British actor:

"I missed the F-bomb. But you know what? I've you know - I've laid down many of them before. I think I know what it was all about."

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Natalie Portman/American actor:

"I think that's one of the most beautiful things about the film is that it can be interpreted in so many different ways. I really see it as this one woman's coming of age. And that she becomes a woman, she starts out a girl by finding her own artistic voice and killing the child version of herself. She becomes a woman. I don't see it necessarily as a death at the end, like many people do."

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Natalie Portman/American actor:

"When it was working it was really so, so hectic. We were just working such long days and sleeping 5 hours a night and then just starting the day again and there was so much preparation, so much training that I didn't really necessarily have time to think about what was happening. And dream wise I was just so exhausted every day. I was literally just falling into bed and waking up and going back to set. I think that sort of pace helped me stay so focused for the part. Yeah, I didn't have too many crazy dreams. I'm pretty good at shutting off. This one was a little harder to shake, just the whole mood of the whole movie was so intense. It stayed with me a little longer than usual."

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Natalie Portman/American actor:

"I have no idea. It's one of the most exciting things about being pregnant.

I just am accepting complete unknown. It's a complete mystery and miracle and yeah it's really just accepting that I have no idea and it's what all of us live every day."

5. SOUNDBITE (English) Colin Firth/British actor:

"I don't really want to get entangled in the political judgment on that. I tend to find that my rather insignificant opinions get more attention that they deserve. But I do think on the face of it that that was a short-sighted decision. I do however think that the fact that BFI seems to have taken up that role is very positive. I think that it was probably a sign that the government has recognized a need for a body like that that they need to work closely with to find a way to find a way to get films financed with government cooperation. I'm optimistic at the moment."

6. SOUNDBITE (English) Colin Firth/British actor:

"I think I'm going to cook a lot. I don't think I'm very good at it but I'm going to inflict my cooking on anybody within range. I tend to find that that's a very good way to decompress. I'll probably be the only one eating it. But I think that's what I'm going to."

7. SOUNDBITE (English) Tom Hooper/British director "There was something about the way that I was shooting them, the fact that I like them so much as people probably, probably is in the DNA of the movie.

Their liking for each other is in the DNA of the movie. There's a lot of kindness in the movie and compassion in the movie. Alongside our professional relationship, we respected each other so much was probably what Geoffrey Rush has jokingly referred to as something a little bit more."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Tom Hooper/British director

"We shot the Geoffrey and Colin stuff first and so when she arrived, she arrived into this incredibly strong bond between them. And it was a source of endless comedy from then on, that she felt that the real love story was between the two men and not between her and Colin. But she acted the supportive wife brilliantly on-camera as you know, but off-camera she was teasing us for the fact that the love story should really be between her husband and her."

9. SOUNDBITE (English) Tom Hooper/British director

"I don't think I'm going to go to bed for a while. I've got Oprah Winfrey at 10am. I've got Today Show at 5am. I don't want to be the first person to go on Oprah drunk so I'll try and restrain myself."

10. SOUNDBITE (English) Tom Hooper/British director

"I think I didn't quite believe that there were masterpieces sitting unread in attics. I kinda thought the system worked that there were scouts everywhere as efficient that if there was a script somewhere we'd all know that it existed. The story of how this film came to be is a classic example of how that's not the case. This play failed to be produced as a fringe theater play, as a fringe theater play. So this play was going nowhere when I came to it and my producers came to it and Geoffrey came to it. So it's made me more open-minded to the idea that there may be masterpieces, wonderful stories that are lying neglected and that the system doesn't always deliver to you the best stuff that's out there."

STORYLINE

WINNERS REACT BACKSTAGE

The King's Speech" was crowned best picture Sunday at an Academy Awards ceremony as precise as a state coronation. The monarchy drama won an expected four Oscars, and predictable favorites claimed acting honors.

Colin Firth as stammering British ruler George VI in "The King's Speech" earned the best-actor prize, while Natalie Portman won best actress as a delusional ballerina in "Black Swan."

Firth said he was planning to cook a lot to relax after the exhilaration of a successful awards season.

"I don't think I'm very good at it but I'm going to inflict my cooking on anybody within range. I tend to find that that's a very good way to decompress. I'll probably be the only one eating it," he said.

Backstage in the press room, Portman described how the long days of shooting kept her from dwelling on the film's dark mood.

"I was literally just falling into bed and waking up and going back to set. I think that sort of pace helped me stay so focused for the part. Yeah, I didn't have too many crazy dreams. I'm pretty good at shutting off. This one was a little harder to shake, just the whole mood of the whole movie was so intense. It stayed with me a little longer than usual," she said.

The boxing drama "The Fighter" captured both supporting-acting honors, for Christian Bale as a boxer-turned-drug-abuser and Melissa Leo as a boxing clan's domineering matriarch.

Network censors bleeped Leo for dropping the F-word during her speech.

Backstage, she jokingly conceded it was "probably a very inappropriate place to use that particular word."

Bale joked that he was keeping his language clean.

"I missed the F-bomb. But you know what? I've you know - I've laid down many of them before. I think I know what it was all about."

"The King's Speech" director Tom Hooper described the on-set camaraderie between stars Geoffrey Rush and Colin Firth and said finding the story shook his faith in Hollywood's ability to find good scripts.

"It's made me more open-minded to the idea that there may be masterpieces, wonderful stories that are lying neglected and that the system doesn't always deliver to you the best stuff that's out there," he said.

Hooper said he didn't think he'd be going to bed for a while.

"I've got Oprah Winfrey at 10am. I've got Today Show at 5am. I don't want to be the first person to go on Oprah drunk so I'll try and restrain myself," he said.

STORYLINE

STARS TALK FASHION, EXCITEMENT ON ACADEMY AWARDS RED CARPET

Hailee Steinfeld says the custom-made Marchese gown she wore to the Academy Awards makes her feel "like a princess." The Best Supporting Actress nominee for "True Grit" says she had an idea of what she wanted to wear and drew it out.

Meantime Jennifer Lawrence, up for Best Actress for "Winter's Bone" says comfort was the most important thing when choosing her Oscar gown, adding she "didn't want a corset!"

Her Calvin Klein gown was a slinky, scoopneck dress in fire-engine red.

Newlywed Russell Brand walked the red carpet with his mother, Barbara Elizabeth who told him to "be yourself" when it came time for him to present during the telecast.

Mila Kunis wore a very low-cut, lingerie-style Elie Saab gown in lavender with lace details while Mandy Moore dazzled in a gold-beaded, illusion gown by Monique Lhuillier.

Melissa Leo, nominated in the Best Supporting Actress category for "The Fighter" chose a Marc Bouwer gown, which had a collar-style neckline, was an atypical choice of this most classic and glamorous occasion of the awards-show season.

The Academy Awards' red carpet is a traffic jam of celebrities, publicists, media and screaming bleacher fans.

Sunday's red carpet ran its course under sunny skies, but temperatures dipped into the 50s and a chilly wind blew at times, making goosebumps de rigeur on Hollywood's most famous flesh.

Jennifer Hudson worked her new figure on the red carpet in a tangerine-orange halter gown by Versace. She topped it off with a 20-carat ring, long, basket earrings, and bracelets at $1 million (US) dollars.

The Oscar winner said she creates a character in her mind to walk the red carpet.

"They say 'Don't let the dress wear you - you wear it.' And just live in the moment. I like to create a character in my mind, and lately I've been teasing, saying 'I'm a supermodel' every day, but today I'm a little movie star."

Amy Adams chose a higher neckline L'Wren Scott gown covered in purple caviar beads with a back-hem slit. She says she "fell in love with the color" of the gown which was contrasted by a chunky pendant necklace.

Scarlett Johansson wore a deep-magenta, stretch-lace gown by Dolce & Gabbana and Hilary Swank dressed in a strapless, gray Gucci had the unexpected twist of delicate feathers at the hemline.

Nicole Kidman arrived with husband Keith Urban in a strapless, white Christian Dior gown with silver embroidery despite the recent suspension of designer John Galliano, with a 19th-century, old-mine cut diamond necklace from Fred Leighton.

The Best Actress nominee said her most important fashion critic is her daughter Sunday Rose.

"She approved this. It's got a thumbs up from Sunday."

New mom Penelope Cruz stepped out in a red sequined L'Wren Scott with her husband and Oscar nominee Javier Bardem.

And last year's Best Actress winner Sandra Bullock also wore a red, sculptured, strapless Vera Wang.

Cate Blanchett went the couture route in Givenchy by Riccardo Tisci. The pleated, pale-wisteria dress was embroidered with pearls, crystals covered in leather and a swath of yellow beads around the neck.

Best Actor nominee Colin Firth found the whole situation surreal.

"This isn't my life right now. This is just a weird experience."

Lastly, Helena Bonham Carter worked with costume designer Colleen Atwood for her black corset gown with cat-scratched sleeves.

Helena Bonham Carter, a Best Supporting Actress nominee says the world may be watching to see what she wears on the red carpet but she's not worried about whether her choice will be liked or not.

"I'll do whatever. People will not always not like you. You can't ever expect everyone to like you. I don't do it for that. I'm not dressing to please other people."

LIGHTS, CAMERA....OSCARS

Movie stars packed the glittering Oscar red carpet tonight (06MAR06) in the fabulous annual celebration of all things film and the greatest concentration of top celebrities the world ever sees.

Posing for cameras and talking to the media before entering the Kodak Theatre for the 78th Oscars ceremony the excitement was palpable.

Wolfgang Puck, Oscar Chef, summed up the occasion. "I think the Oscars is the greatest party in the world, I don't think I know anything like it, I don't think the Superbowl or the Presidential inauguration, whatever it is, is all second to the Oscars. The whole world loves movies."

Academy Awards organizers hoped that a new host and the cultural buzz over front-runner 'Brokeback Mountain' with its gay cowboys theme could boost interest in Sunday's Oscars show, even though none of the best-picture nominees were big hits at the box office.

The Oscars generally lure their biggest global audiences in years when blockbusters such as 'Titanic' or 'The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King' are favoured to win.

This year's best-picture lineup has been heralded as an artistic triumph of daring, character-driven stories, yet none of the contenders had the box-office clout to ensure viewers would tune in.

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences assembled an A-list collection of Oscar presenters to help offset a relatively unknown cast of nominees that includes David Strathairn for 'Good Night, and Good Luck, 'Terrence Howard for 'Hustle & Flow' and Amy Adams for 'Junebug.'

George Clooney who won the supporting-actor Academy Award for the oil-industry thriller 'Syriana,' capped a remarkable year for Clooney, who made Oscar history by becoming the first person nominated for acting in one movie and directing another.

On the red carpet, he was all modesty.

He said: "Well you know, the funniest thing is as long as you keep plugging away; my thing was always about survival, and you just keep working and every once in a while you get lucky, it required a lot of luck, I needed a television show to get picked up on a Thursday night for everything to change for me. And that's luck, that's nothing to do with me. So luck, mostly."

Even a veteran such as Steven Spielberg (best Director nominee, ''Munich') admitted the excitement of the evening was infectious.

"I don't know, if it ever gets old for me then I guess I got old. Because this is so exciting you know, just to be nominated with the other nominees this year, this very significant year where all these films have some social and cultural importance, and it's just great company to be in."

Country & music legend Dolly Parton added:

"Well when I first came out here 25 years ago I was just a hill-billy in the city and it was the first movie I'd ever made, I'd never seen a movie being made, but now I've seen it all and done it all but it's still very exciting; you never get too old and callous to not appreciate it."

The Oscars also pay tribute to every aspect of film making - hence the marathon four hour ceremony - as well as movies from across the globe.

This allows little known artists to step into the spotlight alongside the giant screen names and movie legends.

Presley Chweneyagae, who stars in the South African Oscar-Nominated Foreign Language Film, 'Tsotsi', said:

"Well I mean it feels great to be here on the red carpet in LA, and the movie's nominated, I'm so excited, the whole country is excited because we're still a growing industry and I'm very proud to be standing here today representing the country and the film industry in South Africa."

In a year in which the Oscars has embraced taboo-busting issues ('Brokeback Mountain, 'Transamerica,' 'Crash') and hard-hitting politics ('Munich,' Syriana, 'godd Night, and Good Luck') probably the most controversial nomination of the nigt is for 'Paradise Now,' a Palestinian made film about two would be suicide bombers.

Director Hani Abu-Assad, congratulated for the Academy its bravery:

"yeah, it needs a lot of courage. We have to admit it needs a lot of courage to nominate our film for the Oscar, but anyhow without courage, believe me, we will never solve problems, we can't go further, we can't be human beings with courage, accepting others as human beings and allow them to have their place here as a nation that also have culture."

The ceremony also had its second first-time host in as many years, Jon Stewart of the cable television comedy news program 'The Daily Show' taking over from Chris Rock, emcee of last year's Oscars.

The mould-breaking 'Brokeback Mountain' won top prizes at earlier Hollywood honours including the Golden Globes and was expected to earn best picture at the Oscars and the directing trophy for Ang Lee, who would be the first Asian filmmaker to receive that award.

Before he entered the Kodak Theatre, he said: "I love them, I thank them for their support (Chinese). I am proud to be Chinese, I'm not American actually, but I work here legally, I do have a Green Card."

STORYLINE:

As the sun rose in Los Angeles on Sunday, the frantic work continued to put the final touches to the venue for the evening''s most glamorous event - the Oscars.

Workers were putting the giant Oscar statues in place along the red carpet and TV reporters were filing their preview pieces where just hours from now the stars of Hollywood will be standing in front of thousands of cameras.

Die-hard fans were already gathering across the street from the Kodak Theatre in preparation for the 77th annual Academy Awards.

Many of them are waiting in the hope of getting a glimpse of their favourite actors or actresses.

Martin Scorsese''s Howard Hughes epic "The Aviator" and Clint Eastwood''s boxing drama "Million Dollar Baby" are fighting for best picture and director.

It would be Scorsese''s first Oscar after four previous best director losses, and the first time he has delivered a best picture winner.

Eastwood claimed both prizes with 1992''s "Unforgiven."

The other best picture candidates are the J.M. Barrie tale "Finding Neverland," the Ray Charles saga "Ray" and the road trip comedy "Sideways."

Among actors, "Ray" star Jamie Foxx is a favourite for best actor for his remarkable embodiment of Ray Charles.

Besides his best actor nomination, Foxx was also picked in the supporting category for "Collateral."

Hilary Swank, an Oscar winner for "Boys Don''t Cry," is the favourite to take best actress again for "Million Dollar Baby," while Cate Blanchett is predicted to win best supporting actress for "The Aviator."

STORYLINE

PRE-OSCARS, CHALLENGE IS KEEPING CARPET DRY

Sure there''s "Avatar" versus "Hurt Locker," but the biggest drama the night before the Oscars is: Can they keep the red carpet dry?

Workers covered the entrance to the Academy Awards with a plastic tent, and another cover went on top of the carpet, but steady rain was getting through both and keeping the carpet sopping despite efforts to sweep away excess water.

Oscar statues outside the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood were draped in clear plastic, as were many of the TV cameras set up in anticipation of Sunday''s movie star guests including Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock and George Clooney.

Showers were forecast for Oscar morning, but it''s expected to be clear by the time the carpet opens in the afternoon. Meanwhile, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences opened the door to its Governors Ball, the premiere post-Oscar party, held in the Hollywood and Highland complex three floors above the Kodak.

Some 1,500 guests are expected, with winners lured by the prospect of on-site Oscar engraving. Technicians will do in minutes what in the past has taken several weeks, said ball producer Cheryl Cecchetto.

"They''ll be checked in -- their serial numbers will be checked. And they''ll go to one of these three stations," she said. "Technicians will take the Oscar, engrave it right here in front of them. They''ll drink Champagne, they''ll have hors ''d''oeurves, and then they can walk around with their Oscar all night long with their name on their Oscar."

Guests will be served smoked salmon, Baked Alaska and chicken pot pie with black truffles baked in.

The decor is inspired by the 1930s streamlined Moderne design, emphasizing curves in the ceiling, chandeliers and even waiter uniforms.

"Jeffrey Kurland, the ball chair, wanted to bring Old Hollywood back. Well, it''s got a lot of modern twists in it too. The ceiling is a triple-tier ceiling by Paul Williams," Ceccheto said. "We''re ready. We''ve got everything ready to go. And we''re just waiting for the guests to come. Because we''ve got a great Hollywood set, literally a set, for them to come and enjoy."
