Octavia Spencer
7:12 A.M. Despite getting only 45 minutes of sleep, Best Supporting Actress Octavia Spencer was “in a state of bliss” while sitting on a patio at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles, says photographer Art Streiber. ”At one point she reached over, picked her Oscar up, and clutched it to her chest while smiling.”

Christopher Plummer
11:53 A.M. Best Supporting Actor Christopher Plummer showed up at the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel with his Oscar inside a drawstring bag. ”It was one of those felt bags for your shoes that you find in high-end hotel closets,” says Streiber. ”I asked him, ‘Do you mind if I undress your Oscar?’ And he responded, ‘Go right ahead!”’
