91ST OSCARS BACKSTAGE INTERVIEW: Olivia Colman

WINNER – ACTRESS IN A LEADING ROLE – OLIVIA COLMAN – THE FAVOURITE

Q. Congratulations.
A. Thank you.

Q. Your speech touched me and was hilarious. Frankly, how much of that was prepared?
A. None of it. And I’ve just been told I completely forgot Melissa and Yalitza as well, so but, you know, it’s not an everyday occurrence. So I don’t know how anyone is composed and remembers everything because it’s a very weird situation. But to those two beautiful women I forgot to say thank you to.

Q. Congratulations. Massive congratulations on the win. Where are you going to put your Oscar statue at? Where is it going to go?
A. In bed with me, between me and my husband. He doesn’t know yet.

Q. I knew you were one of the great actors as soon as I saw you in TYRANNOSAUR years ago. How do you go about finding the tragic and the absurd and vice versa, because that is what you do so beautifully in this role? It’s hilarious and shattering.
A. Well, that is lovely of you. No, that is a lovely thing for you to say. Thank you very much. I don’t know.

Q. Hi. Congratulations.
A. Thank you very much.

Q. So, first of all, BROADCHURCH is not coming back; right?
A. No, we’ve done three. That’s it. Sorry.

Q. That’s it. Okay. Were you expecting this at all, because the reaction
A. No.

Q. both here at the ceremony was you were completely blind sided.
A. Yeah.

Q. Blind sided by it. So how does it feel, like, to do this?
A. I have no idea. I could not tell you what I’m feeling. Next year, I might I’ll be able to put it into words, but I don’t know what to do with myself at the moment.

Q. What prepared you for this role?
A. The script was amazing, and then you just do what’s written down, I think. Without the writers, without words, we are just bumbling around, miming. So if the script is good, it’s all there. I think.

Q. Hi, Olivia.
A. Hi.

Q. How old are your kids, and are they watching or not?
A. They are watching, because they are here.

Q. Oh, fantastic.
A. Yeah.

Q. So they are in a hotel room watching it, or…
A. No, we borrowed my agent’s house.

Q. And how old are they?
A. 13, 11, and 3. There was a gap. I had to persuade my husband for a few years.

Q. Congratulations.
A. Thank you very much.

Q. What would Queen Anne say to you right now?
A. Have some cake. Blue cake. Eat too much blue cake. If you had seen the film, it makes sense. It wasn’t just a weird things to say.

Q. Thank you so much. Congratulations.
