13. SOUNDBITE (English) Steve Carell/Actor, on significance of SAG awards “You know what? It’s great. And I think that the fact that it’s the only show that has an award for ‘ ensemble ‘, which I think is very important. I think it’s something our show prides itself on That everyone gets along, that everyone works together on a whole, as a unit, and no one is more important than anyone else. So, it’s a great honour to be nominated for that.”

“I don’t know. We try to do interviews together and we both keep laughing, so we’ve had to do . . . No, so it’s fun that we both have a reason to be here. We’re both are rooting for each other’s work, so it’s kind of like, you know.”
18. SOUNDBITE (English) Brad Pitt/Actor, on doing the awards-show circuit with Jolie:
“Sure, sure. We both know what the deal is and what to do but at the same time, it’s really a nice night because we get to catch up with friends, co-workers that we haven’t seen all year. And get to touch base, catch up and talk about the movies, so it’s good fun for us.”
19. Set up shot of actor Kate Winslet
20. SOUNDBITE (English) Kate Winslet/Actor, on getting a Best Actress nomination for her performance in “The Reader,” after a slew of nominations for the role in supporting categories:
“Well, I’m really happy. I have to be honest, I am really, really happy. Playing Anna Schmitz was such a challenge, and it was really terrifying every single day. And. I don’t understand the politics, how it happens come awards season. But the reality is, the performance that I play in ‘The Reader’ — it wasn’t ever really a supporting role. And people would say that to me, and I would say, ‘ Well, I don’t know. How can I judge? I can’t decide these things. And somehow the universe stepped in and decided it for me. So, I’m very, very happy.”
21. Actor Anne Hathaway poses for photographers
22. SOUNDBITE (English) Anne Hathaway/Actor, her reaction to her Oscar nomination:
“You know, I didn’t sleep very well beforehand. I was a little nervous, and I decided to spend the evening at my parents house, just because I figured I’d be crying either way the next morning. So, it would be good to be with Mommy and Daddy. So, I was sitting on my couch. I had my dog on my lap. She weighs 80 pounds, so that was no small feat, in and of itself. My parents were there, they announced my name first, and I don’t remember a thing after that. I was just dancing around. Jumping, screaming, group hugs. Apparently, my parents’ neighbour called down to the doorman, and said, ‘I think she got nominated because I heard a very loud noise.'”
