Reese Witherspoon and Renée Zellweger
Reese: I was so nervous and terrified [being nominated] and you were an incredible source of strength and encouragement. I called you every day when I was dealing with that garbage. I shouldn't call it garbage, but there's a lot of anxiety that comes with it.
Renée: Well, it's a tremendous responsibility. You don't want to let the people down who... you shared the efforts with on the film.
Reese: You're sitting there thinking, I really hope they call my name, but I really hope they don't call my name. You really made me feel better about the fact that, as southern women, we both come from a place of, "Oh, not me, you." And you were like, just enjoy it.
Renée: It's OK to have people think you did a good job! Embrace that moment. Do you remember it?
Reese (laughs): No.
