In a resurfaced clip of a candid interview on Jamie Foxx’s Off Script With Jamie Foxx series, Denzel Washington opened up about a story from the 1988 Oscars, detailing what happened after the ceremony.
“Let me tell you a Sean Connery story,” the Training Day actor said. “He was up forThe Untouchables, I was up for Cry Freedom, and he comes out to present an award and got a three-minute standing ovation — for presenting an award.”
“I went to get the coats,” he added while bursting into laughter with Foxx. “Cause I know I ain’t winning tonight. So I’m leaving without the Oscar, but as I’m leaving, I see them in the back getting the food ready for the governor’s ball. I see a big tray, I’m like ‘I’m leaving here with somethin’. I’m from around the way, I’m leaving with something.”
