Oscars 2014 backstage: What the winners didn't say on TV

Sunday night’s Oscar winners had plenty to say onstage (Best Actor champ Matthew McConaughey even snuck in an “Alright, alright, alright”), but there’s always more to express after winning the biggest award in film. That’s where the backstage press room comes in, and EW was there to collect all the best moments and bons mots you didn’t see on TV.

For some, holding a golden statuette put them in a playful mood, including Jared Leto (Best Supporting Actor for Dallas Buyers Club), who passed his new hardware around the press room so everyone could share in his victory, and Best Actress winner Cate Blanchett (Blue Jasmine), who joked that she was being auctioned off to the highest bidder in the room (“Only 86? I’m worth a little bit more than that!”). Others were reflective, including Best Supporting Actress winner Lupita Nyong’o (12 Years a Slave): “What I’ve learned from myself is I don’t have to be anybody else. Myself is good enough.”

Jared Leto wins Best Supporting Actor at the 2014 Oscars


Jared Leto won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his role as a transgender AIDS patient in Dallas Buyers Club. In his first role in nearly six years, Leto dominated the pre-Oscar prizes and was a heavy favorite to win. Leto thanked his mother, who raised him and his older brother alone, and then spoke to the dreamers watching at home in such trouble spots as Ukraine and Venezuela. He closed with reminding the audience of the 36 million people who have lost the battle with AIDS and the millions of people who fight courageously every day to be different and to be themselves.

Jared Leto engages heckler protesting his transgender performance in 'Dallas Buyers Club'

Jared Leto’s interview at Tuesday night’s Santa Barbara International Film Festival Virtuoso Awards was interrupted by a heckler who yelled that Leto had no right to play the transgender character in Dallas Buyers Club. “You don’t deserve an award!” the heckler said, according to multiple reports from the event. “Trans-misogyny does not deserve an award!”

Leto calmly engaged with the heckler, who witnesses identified as a transgender woman. “Because I’m a man, I don’t deserve to play that part?” Leto asked, according to the Hollywood Reporter. “So you would hold a role against someone who happened to be gay or lesbian — they can’t play a straight part?”

The two went back and forth, with the heckler complaining that straight actors win awards for playing transgender characters. Leto turned the tables, saying, “Then you’ve made sure people that are gay, people that aren’t straight, people like the Rayons of the world would never have the opportunity to turn the tables and explore parts of that art.” READ FULL STORY

Oscars 2014: Jared Leto reacts -- 'Yesterday I was doing jury duty, today I got an Academy Award nomination'

Jared Leto is having an amazing morning — but when he first woke up he thought maybe an Oscar nomination wasn’t going to happen. “I woke up about an hour ago [5:37 am] and thought, ‘Oh I must not have gotten the nomination because no one woke me up yet. I was having a philosophical debate in my head about gratitude versus disappointment so you know I just won the Golden Globe and I’ve won 25 or so awards this season for the film already so there’s a lot to be grateful for. The nomination obviously is a huge one and it’s a great thing to get it.”

But a nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his work in Dallas Buyers Club isn’t the only thing on Leto’s mind this morning. He’s also got jury duty to contend with. (Oscar nominees! They’re just like us!) “It’s great: yesterday I was doing jury duty, today I got an Academy Award nomination…. only in America,” Leto said. “We probably shouldn’t talk about the case anymore (laughs).” READ FULL STORY

Jared Leto wins Best Supporting Actor at the Golden Globes

Jared Leto took home his first Golden Globe earlier tonight, for Best Supporting Actor.

“I waxed my entire body,” Leto explained in his acceptance speech about his prep for the role in Dallas Buyers Club. “I’m just lucky it wasn’t a period piece so I didn’t have to do full Brazilian. …It’s more than an honor to come back and have this support. I never expected it and I never even dreamed of it.”

As a response to his role as a transgender woman, Leto concluded his speech saying, “To the Rayons of the world, thanks for your inspiration.”

Golden Globes: Nominee Jared Leto on touring and transformation

Anyone attending Thirty Seconds to Mars’s sold-out concert in St. Louis tonight is in for a special treat: They’ll get to see Jared Leto’s very first show since being nominated for a Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe this morning.

Leto wasn’t even awake when the Hollywood Foreign Press Association announced that he was up for the award; instead, the Dallas Buyers Club star tells EW that he was “on a bunk aboard a bus that’s traveling across America in the absolute freezing cold, dead asleep.” Adds Leto: “I still may be sleeping; I’m not sure.”

But Leto will be fully alert tonight, when he takes the stage for another performance with his band — one that will double as a post-nominations victory lap. “Any night onstage with Thirty Seconds to Mars is a great night,” he says. “It’s a celebration. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the night celebrating this nomination. Our shows are all about a celebration. It’s all about a celebration of life, and it’s a wonderful way to spend your life, sharing excitement and creativity with people all around the world.”
