Fans line up for Oprah's post Oscar show

March 8, 2010 12:00:00 AM PST
An Oscar tradition continued Monday with Hollywood's biggest after party, the post Oscars Oprah Show. Those lucky enough to score the coveted tickets were excited to see the all star lineup. The Academy Awards may be over, but there was still a lot of excitement on Hollywood Boulevard Monday morning.

Oprah Winfrey is in town to tape her post Oscar show. Fans lined up early to get a good spot in line for the annual show.

"It's so exciting to be here and to imagine who was sitting in these seats just last night," said one lucky fan. "It's a magical feeling. You can like feel the energy."

One of Oprah's guests was Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock. The 45-year-old actress took home the coveted award for her dynamic performance as Leigh Anne Tuohy in "The Blind Side."

"Did I really earn this or did I just wear you all down?" Bullock asked the Oscar crowd. Bullock gushed with praise for her fellow nominees, including Meryl Streep, who she joked is "such a good kisser."

The star says she never aspired to win an Academy Award, but she was obviously thrilled to win the Oscar. She was just one of the big winners who sat down and talked with Oprah.

"Sandra Bullock, Mo'Nique, Jeff Bridges and Christoph Waltz are all here," said Winfrey. "We have had great conversation. They have been partying all night and celebrating."

The big winners probably didn't get a whole lot of sleep last night, but it is hard to pass up the opportunity to sit down and talk with Oprah.

"After the sixth one, you've officially become a tradition. The night before everybody is frantic because you don't' know who's going to say yes to you, or who's going to want to stay up all night or get up early and come to do your show, but it's exciting to me that people show up," said Winfrey.

Oprah said one of her favorite things about last night was the glamour.

"I loved that everybody looked so beautiful, and what makes me sick is the next morning, people critiquing or rating or whatever, but I loved that everybody gave their 100 percent game," Winfrey said.

But for those who wondered if there was a plan amongst the women associated with "Precious" to all dress alike, there wasn't. Oprah called it "divine synchronicity" emanating from Hattie McDaniel, the first African American to win an Oscar in 1939.

"Mo'Nique wore blue because Hattie McDaniel wore blue when she won and had the flower, the gardenia in her hair," Winfrey said. "I wore blue becuase that's the dress Carolina Herrera did for me, and I don't know why Gabby wore blue. So we had never spoken about it. It was just a blue thing."

After the show, Oprah joked that after sitting down with the Oscar winning guests and their statues, she wants one of her own.
