ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Winners at the 87th annual Academy Awards on Sunday (February 22) spoke to the media backstage after picking up their trophies. "Birdman" director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and actors Julianne Moore, Eddie Redmayne, Patricia Arquette all celebrated their wins. Inarritu, who picked up the best director and best picture awards, compared making his film to making love. "Fear is the condom of life. It doesn't allow you to enjoy things," he said. Eddie Redmayne, who won best actor for his role in "The Theory of Everything," described the feeling he had when accepting his award from Cate Blanchett. "It just felt like a euphoria really, an extraordinary euphoria really. It's something I will not forget in a hurry." Best actress winner Julianne Moore seemed to be experiencing euphoria as well. She said her husband had predicted she would win the award when he first saw her in "Still Alice." J.K. Simmons celebrated his best supporting actor award and Patricia Arquette, who picked up the win for best supporting actress, remarked on her political acceptance speech. Rapper Common and R&B star John Legend won best original song for the film "Selma." Also hitting the backstage was Alexandre Desplat, who won the Oscar for best original score for the film "The Grand Budapest Hotel." It was the first win for the French composer, who has been nominated for the award eight times.
