Leave it to Oprah Winfrey
to tell it like it is.
The talk show legend and actress, who just turned 60
, Instagrammed a video of herself being sewn into a crimson gown before heading to the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) awards in London on Sunday, where she was nominated for her supporting actress role in Lee Daniels' The Butler
"It's an hour to go, and this is Raj and Giuseppe, who are literally stitching me into my gown for the red carpet," she says
in the video (see it below).
Winfrey then seems to let out a little nervous energy by enthusiastically saying/singing, "Hello Stella McCartney. Stella McCaaartneeey!"
Winfrey ultimately lost out to Jennifer Lawrence
, who won the award for her role in American Hustle
Many were surprised that Winfrey and Lee Daniels' The Butler were not nominated for any Academy Awards
this season, but the snub doesn't seem to have turned her off from acting. She may appear
in a revival of Marsha Norman's Pulitzer Prize-winning play 'night, Mother
on Broadway next year.
