Big Teary Celebration! Sunday night was huge for the cast of Big Little Lies. The hit HBO mini-series took home four awards, including Best Actress for Nicole Kidman, Best Limited TV Series, Best Actor for Alexander Skarsgard, and Best Supporting Actress for Laura Dern. The show was nominated in six categories, losing out only to members of their own cast.
ET’s Nancy O’Dell caught up with the stars of the hit series right after their big wins where they couldn’t seem to believe their luck.
“[I’m] overwhelmed,” star and executive producer Reese Witherspoon said. “I’ve cried 16 times.”
Her co-star Alexander Skarsgard joked, “I think we won five out of four [categories].”
The cast couldn’t help but joke about their success and their closeness with one another when asked.
“I think everyone just being who they are and everyone accepting each other for who they are and supporting one another,” Shailene Woodley said of their chemistry.
“Sexual tension as well,” her co-star Zoe Kravitz jokingly added.
“So much sexual tension,” Woodley agreed. “So much sexual tension, can’t wait for season two.”
And awards weren’t the stars’ only honors of the night. Witherspoon also got the chance to introduce her friend and co-star Oprah Winfrey before her headline-making Cecil B. DeMille Award acceptance speech.
“When she asked me to do it in December, I wept,” Witherspoon admitted. “Then I didn’t sleep for like three or four days. I was very deeply moved because she’s an incredible, kind, magnanimous person who cares about literally every person. She sees everyone. She’s just a great equalizer. She just really deeply cares about humanity as a whole.”
Witherspoon admitted that preparing the introduction took quite some time, noting that she’s “a little bit of a perfectionist.”
“I also pump myself up, and I go into a spiral of worry,” she said. “So I probably made 17 versions of it, but then I felt like it was important to say something about her and let her speak.”
