Academy Award actor and actress winners chatted about their Oscar ceremony experiences with Oprah Winfrey on Monday's 'The Oprah Winfrey Show' (weekdays, syndicated).

Best Supporting Actor Christoph Waltz admitted to Winfrey that he was "more nervous than ever before. Because it is the Academy Awards. I blanked out completely. I hardly recognized my name." The he told Winfrey that his 5-year-old daughter has been dressing his awards, making little installations with them. "She's really gonna enjoy dressing this guy," Winfrey said.

Winfrey asked Best Actor Jeff Bridges what the past 12 hours was like. "Like a kid's magic slate," he said. "Whoosh." Then he went to on to talk about his parents presence, which he has alluded to at several awards shows. "I felt my folks," he said. "They were all over the place."

Best Supporting Actress Mo'Nique's homage to the great actress Hattie McDaniel (the first black woman to get a Best Supporting Actress nod, for 'Gone With the Wind' in 1939) went a little beyond the ordinary. "Last night was really special cause I could hear her whispering in my ear," Mo'Nique said. And on Sunday, while she was going through hair and makeup, there was a knock at her door, and someone delivered a flower and a letter from someone who was a friend with McDaniel's family. Coincidence?

And, finally, Winfrey brought up the by-now-famous Sandra Bullock-Meryl Streep buss that Best Actress winner Bullock mentioned on stage Sunday night. "We have a thing," Bullock quipped. Actually, Bullock said, "you just feel in this business that they pit women against each other ... and I'm so tired of it ... and i said, 'how do we defuse this?' I'm gonna kiss her."
