We always need a bit of time to recuperate. We'll be wrapping this year's Oscars up tonight through Wednesday morning. But for now... chilling. It's the morning after.
We've all seen this stone cold classic photo of Faye Dunaway the morning after her Oscar win for Network but Framework was kind enough to share more photos (and other Oscar types) in a slideshow gallery and I did a little more searching too.
More "Morning After" after you click including Best Scene Steal and 2 Greedy Gretchens.
Joan Crawford always knew how to make a scene. And her post-Oscar scene stealing in 1946 was one of her all time best. I can't be certain these photos were taken the next morning (perhaps they were at 11 PM or so on Oscar night?) but she claimed (feigned?) sickness for Mildred Pierce's big Oscar night. They supposedly rushed her Oscar to her bedside for the Star to receive... and the statue arrived with photographers of course. The next day it was Joan Crawford hogging the headlines from her bed instead of people who actually showed to the event.
Julie Christie meets the press the morning after winning for Darling in April 1966. Look at all the smoke in the press room. Mad Men had it right.
Henry Fonda was too sick to attend the ceremony for On Golden Pond but they took this photo the next day. The screen legend died less than five months later.
Greedy Gretchens: Billy Wilder the day after his Oscar wins for The Apartment, doubling his collection. He never won again though he was nominated once more for writing The Fortune Cookie (1966) and he won the Irving Thalberg too; Olivia DeHavilland sticking it to Joan Fontaine (who beat her to a first Oscar) by winning a second for The Heiress. Here she is the day after staring at the new twin.
