Now not to piss on your lovely award, but Robin
You won the Oscar for -you don't
Just to hear you say that in a sentence, "not to piss on your
yes, it's like *wow*
Presumably that must be obviously a career highlight
-Did it change your life?
-No, for like a
a week it was like "hey
congratulations, way to go, Good Will Hunting, way to go"
Two weeks later, "HEY MORK!"
I was back being that again, so it lasted, I mean
the moment they say your name when you win, English becomes a second
and I forgot to thank my mother and she was in the audience
yeah, that's, even the therapist went "Get out"
that was a bit, that was rough for the next few years
like "well, how's the award?"
"you came through here, how's the award?"
Elijah, you must have had the most
amazing night when Lord of the Rings, what it equaled
it was the most Oscar wins of all time, it equaled the record didn't it?
So surreal, it was 11 yeah, I think it was the most ever
nominated and won together, yeah -wow
but then, I love this, you didn't go
to all the kind of proper, like you didn't go to the vanity fair parties or any of that
Tell us where you went
the fans basically of Lord of the Rings
had their own party, the one ring party
of celebrating the Oscars, and we went to that party
and Billy Boyd - it was wonderful -that's great
and we actually, I believe we took the Oscars there
and displayed them, I think Pete showed up and everything
Billy Boyd sang
uh, Dominic Monaghan sang
it was just a joyous, beautiful event
and we ended up staying there all night. We thought we were just gonna show up and kind of
make an appearance and thank everyone for having a great party
in our honour, and it was the best. We just stayed -and there'll
be a video tape later called 'Hobbits Gone Wild'
"YO GIVE IT UP HOBBIT
BOY, BOY, BOY, BIG FEET MOVE IT ON!!"
It was a beautiful night because we felt like we, I mean they were
celebrating this thing with us, and you know
so many of the people who were a part of making the films
were there at the Oscars that night -Oh it was huge -and it was
a big family. You know, we were celebrating as a family, it was beautiful
And was it at the Oscars or, no, the Golden Globes I think
where you were, was it Jack Nicholson? -backstage, yeah
-were you waiting to go on with Jack Nicholson? -I was waiting to go on
to present an award, Jack was back there - yeah, this is good
Jack was back there, and Dustin Hoffman was back there and um
somehow Lord of the Rings came up in conversation
and he stood there and he said "you know..."
-I can't do a Jack impression -oh you can do it, no, go
-I can't, I won't, I actually won't do it because you're too good
but he basically said "you know, that movie...
"...it just had so many endings"
He was like "it just wouldn't end"
and he said to me that he actually walked out before the end
he said - oh that's how it started - he said "what happened?"
and I said "Jack, what do you mean - what do you mean what happened?"
He said "well tell me what the end was"
and I said "well you know at the end, uh, the hobbits
are saying goodbye to each other, and Frodo gets on the boat and sails
into the undying lands." He said "I didn't even see it, I walked
out before the end"
So he was basically complaining that there were just too many
endings to the film -Drugs wore off, that's what happened -Amazing
"I have to go outside for a little medication"
When I won my Academy Award he was there, he won, this was his
third Academy Award. We're standing backstage
because they're just about to take you to the press conference and he goes
"You know Robbo, now I have one for every decade"
I'm like "You bastard!"
