Oscar liveblog: 'The Hurt Locker' producers backstage

March 7, 2010 | 10:53 pm

10:45 pm: We'll have more from Jeff Bridges and Sandra Bullock backstage a little later on, but in the meantime, some notable quotes from Kathryn Bigelow, Mark Boal and Greg Shapiro, the night's big winners (along with Nicolas Chartier, who's somewhere in Malibu).

Bigelow on her historic win: "I hope, hope I'm the first of many. And, of course, I'd love to just think of myself as a filmmaker, and I long for the day when the modifier can be a moot point, but I'm ever grateful if I can inspire some young intrepid, tenacious male or female filmmaker and have them feel that the impossible is possible."

Boal on the strange trip the film has taken: "I think we're all reminded every day of all the filmmakers out there who don't get their films made ... or don't get them distributed and go straight to DVD. And it's an honor to be here."

On talking to Chartier:

Shapiro: "We haven't spoken to him yet. He sent me a very beautiful e-mail. He had a party thrown for him, and I think he's very pleased. We're gonna see him later."

Boal: "Actually, the cellphones don't work backstage. Maybe it's the concrete. But as Greg said, I think he's very happy."
