In 2019, Olivia Colman made an appearance on The Graham Norton Show to promote her series, The Crown Season 3. Amid her interaction, she went on to talk about her 2019 Oscars win. She mentioned that she couldn’t remember the night she won her Best Actress Oscar because she was too drunk. More so, she added that the great thing about the Oscars is that there is a bar just behind the auditorium, so everyone is there. Not only this, but she also remarked that there are hundreds of seat fillers so almost everybody is in the bar. Olivia quipped that when someone’s name is announced, for example, in The Best Documentary category, people just get up and rush to the stage.
Here’s a sneak peek into her revelation:
Olivia Colman’s Oscar win made headlines after she won the Best Actress for her role in The Favourite, amongst Yalitza Aparicio, Melissa McCarthy, Lady Gaga, and frontrunner Glenn. Colman had previously won the Golden Globe and SAG Award for her role in The Wife. While the Best Picture award was bagged by Green Book, the lead actor award was presented to Rami Malek, for Bohemian Rhapsody.
After she received the award, Colman burst into tears and thanked everyone for her win. As seen in the video, she said, “This is hilarious, I’ve got an Oscar.” She added, “I’ve to thank a lot of people if I forget anybody I’m gonna find you later and give all the messages, I’m really sorry if I forget now. Today to be in this category with these extraordinary women, Glenn Close, you’ve been my idol for so long, and this is not how I wanted it to be, and I think you’re amazing.”
