No one was more excited about his Oscar victory than Eddie Redmayne.

When PEOPLE asked the Best Actor winner what was going through his head, he could barely describe it.

"Every kind of adrenaline, euphoria, excitement, nerves you can imagine!" he said.

Redmayne took home the prize for his role as Stephen Hawking in The Theory of Everything. He plans to visit the famous physicist to share the victory with him.

"I think I will certainly go to Cambridge at some point to see Stephen and Jane," he told reporters in the pressroom. "They've been so kind to us throughout this process."
