The Oscars: 10 Best Backstage Moments


David Seidler (winner: best original screenplay, "The King's Speech") on what the award means to him as a former stutterer: "A fairly high ranking person called me the other day and wanted to talk ex-stutterer to ex-stutterer ... I've been flooded with the most wonderful emails and text messages from my fellow sutterers. Because, I'm still a stutterer. ... To have these people tell me their personal stories really moves me to tears."

Aaron Sorkin (winner: best adapted screenplay, "The Social Network") on Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg: "Mark, I think he's been an awfully good sport about all this. I don't think anyone here would want a movie made about the things that they did when they were 19-years-old."

Tom Hooper (winner: best director, "The King's Speech") on how he plans celebrate: "Well I don't think I'm going to sleep tonight, I have to be on 'Oprah' at 10 a.m. ... I don't want to be the first person to go on 'Oprah' drunk so I'll try to control myself."
