"For me it was a part to swing your cat in, it was a gift," Blanchett said while talking about her role in "Blue Jasmine." [Quoted by BBC]

"First off, I want to thank God, because that's who I look up to. He's graced my life with opportunities that I know are not of my hand or any other human hand. He has shown me that it's a scientific fact that gratitude reciprocates," McConaughey winning quote.

"They put a cone right outside my car and I fell on the cone. And I have a goose egg and it really hurts. It's ok, I've got them all over myself," Lawrence said while talking about her trip on the red carpet.

"She's so graceful that she could trip all day long and I would be like she's more graceful than I am when I wake up in the morning," Mindy Kaling said while talking about Lawrence's red carpet fall, as quoted by E! Online.

Kerry Washington dropped a cryptic spoiler about her TV drama series, "Scandal." She said, as quoted by Parade, "It's worth the wait...It's pretty insane, what goes on. There's some shocking stuff that's about to unfold. Gladiators, unite."

"The person I went into filming this movie is not the same person who came out," Sandra Bullock said about working in "Gravity."

"I do have a few words tucked into my bra. It's a very Australian thing to do. It's where you put your tissues," Catherine Martin said, as quoted by BBC.

"We were inspired by champagne bubbles...I grew up with a lot of blue around me, for some reason, so I feel very at home in this gown," Lupita Nyong'o  said while talking about her cool ice blue colour gown, as quoted by Parade
