    Cate Blanchett and Matthew McConaughey celebrate Best Actor and Actress wins at the 86th Annual Academy Awards.

    Hello, I'm Emerald Robinson with you PopSocial News Update.

     

    Kate Blanchett and Matthew McConaughey had golden moments at the 86th annual Oscars.  And Kate gave us all a little shock.  

     

    (Kate clip) But this isn't the most shocking thing Kate Blanchett said that day.  After dropping the "F-bomb" on live TV.  The best actress Oscar winner went on the Ellen Degenerus Show to reveal that she had slept with her award.  There where still plenty of room in her bed for hubby Andrew Upton though.  The actress scooped the Oscar after her breathtaking role in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, making Australia's record books as the only Aussie actress to ever win two Academy Awards.  And there's nothing for Matthew McConaughey to be "dazed and confused about" here.  He's officially nabbed the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in Dallas Buyer's Club.  The actor gave an inspiring speech informing the audience that he needs three things everyday:  something to look up to, something to look forward to, and something to chase.  The actor says that God is the thing he looks up to, that his wife Camilla Alvez and three sons are what he looks forward to, and that keeps him chasing what will be his hero which is himself in 10 years.  

     

    Congratulations to both Kate and Matthew for big wins after two amazing performances.  If I won an Oscar I would sleep with it too!
