Snippets of the best of her backstage interview:

On her fall and what happened?
“What do you mean what happened?  Look at my dress.  I tried to walk up stairs in this dress.  That’s what happened.  I don’t actually    I think I just stepped on the fabric and they waxed the stairs.”

“What went through my mind when I fell down?  A bad word that I can’t say that starts with ‘F.'”

She’s had 2 nominations. Is that a good thing?
“I hope so.  Yeah.  I mean, I who knows. I guess we’ll see.”

Is she worried about peaking too soon?
“Well, now I am.”

What was the difference between being nominated this year and two years ago?
“Preparing for the day?  Well, I didn’t eat today because I was so stressed and then I was starving in the car ride over, and that sucked.  But I don’t know.  Well, I was    I think I was    well, I was less nervous because I had been through it before, and I know more people.  I mean, last year or last time, I was brand new to the industry, and I was    and I didn’t know anybody.  So, I would always go to these things and I see all these people like hugging, and like, “Oh, my God, John, how are you?”  And I am just like er er er.  And so, I know more people, and that makes it a lot less awkward.”
