Jessica Chastain — who appeared in a whopping six releases last year, "The Help" and "The Tree of Life" among them — still felt like the new girl in town Sunday as she made her way down the Oscars red carpet.

"It's incredible.... It's something that I always dreamed about. It kind of actually means that I'm doing it," Chastain said, taking in her surroundings.

"I've wanted to be an actor and now it's like, 'Wow, I'm at the Oscars. This is great,'" said the supporting actress nominee, whose "Help" costar Octavia Spencer wound up taking home the trophy.

"I'm with my grandma and so that calms me down a bit because it reminds me to see it all through her eyes."
