Swinton Prepared For Oscar Loss

Actress TILDA SWINTON was so convinced she would not win an Academy Award on Sunday (24Feb08), she didn't hear her name when it was announced. The 47-year-old Brit, who won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her role in Michael Clayton, has dubbed the seconds following her win a "reverse Zoolander moment", in a reference to Ben Stiller's 2001 comedy in which a dim-witted male model tries to accept an award given to his rival. After her big win, she told reporters, "I really just had a reverse Zoolander moment when I think I heard someone else's name and suddenly slowly heard my own. "I'm still recovering from that moment, and I have absolutely no idea what happened after that. So, you know, you can tell me my dress fell off and I'd believe you, so don't be cruel."
