Amid the many festivities of Sunday's Academy Awards was a performance by Catherine Zeta-Jones from Chicago, the musical that won her an Oscar a decade ago. Her husband, Michael Douglas, dazzled her with compliments for the impressive number.
"I can't believe it was ten years ago," the Wall Street actor said on the red carpet of the Vanity Fair after-party. "She looks as beautiful...and just amazing. That's a workout, and there she is. [She] looks great; the show stands up pretty good too."
Just before the stars capped the night with a celebration, they revealed their favorite moments of the ceremony. The consensus among the majority of the attendees was that they enjoyed musical performances like Zeta-Jones'.
"The music was fantastic, actually," said Daniel Day-Lewis, who won Best Actor for his role as Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln. "Adele's a bit of a favorite in our family."
Longtime actor Jon Voight, who has attended many an award show in his day, gave his opinion on why the show was a success.
"I really enjoyed tonight. I thought [it] was nice [and] evenly spread out and all these wonderful, talented people getting attention," said Voight, father of actress Angelina Jolie. "...The speeches were great, and I was very moved by the final speech by Ben [Affleck]. ...It was very beautiful."
One of a handful of actors who completed an awards sweep by notching an Oscar in addition to SAG and Golden Globes Awards was Anne Hathaway, who won yet again for her supporting role in Les Misérables.
Although she had already won two major awards for her role, Hathaway claims she wasn't expecting to win the Oscar on Sunday.
"No. [I didn't know]," she replied when ET's Rocsi suggested she had a premonition she would win the award. "Not until Christopher Plummer said my name."
