SigourneyThere was no nail-biting going on for the tall lady in the bright red dress Sunday afternoon.

"I think we'll win," Sigourney Weaver said on the Oscars red carpet. 

"My heart is blue but I wanted to wear red ..., " she said, discussing her choice of a red Alber Elbaz gown."I feel like a flower."

About "Avatar," she said: 'We're all thrilled to be here. It's not often that a science fiction film is even nominated, let alone have a pretty good chance, don't you think, for best picture?"

We'll all know soon enough, Sigourney!
