Transcript for Best Actress Winner Cate Blanchett: 'You Never Expect This to Happen'
I got the chance to sit down with cate Blanchett, who, along with Jared Leto seemed a Fait accompli. Not surprising she took home her second Oscar. This night's going talk for me. I'm not saying a thing. It's always fun to be the one to be able to ask you about the moment. Cate Blanchett. He looked at me. That's when I knew. You never expect it to happen. I think the more expectation there is around it, the more nervous it gets. Um, so, it was -- it's always a shock in that moment. There's never any shoo-ins. It's not the olympics. It's a cultural event. In the end, the choice is subjective. As random and as subjective as this award is, it means a great deal. You called it random and subjective. It's always been something for me to try to wrap my head around. The most subjective thing, art, we choose one that is the best. What does it mean to you? It means that more voters voted for me than for Meryl. Go figure. As the father of a young daughter, I have to say to you -- You arranged marriages. How hold is she? 5 1/2. My 5 1/2-year-old, almost 6 is vomiting at the moment. Zplat's okay. He's a very lovely boy. He's a supple lad, I'm sure. Who pays the dowry? You have to. We can work something out. Show me a picture. I want to thank you. You have earned it. We'll talk about the arranged marriage. In a couple. Congratulations. Completely disarming. I will say, of everybody, she seemed every bit the veteran. It was a second Oscar win for her. Just wonderful. Wonderfully in the moment. You have a future going. And apparently, we're on. She's also going to be the in-law. If I can just have the statue for holidays and maybe birthday parties. That would be great.
