Gabourey Sidibe precious Oscars news

When the BBC asked Gabourey Sidibe what she thought of all the Oscar buzz for "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire," she replied, "It's so scary to think about such a thing. I don't know if I'm an Oscar-worthy actress or I'm in an Oscar-worthy film …. I still don't feel the magnitude of what I've done. I had to do it."

Metromix asked Sidibe, "What do you think when people throw the word 'Oscar' around?"

She replied, "It makes me nervous. Because I don't know what an Oscar-winning film is. I don't know what an Oscar-winning actress is, other than the obvious examples -- Halle Berry and Kate Winslet and all these people. I can't see it because it's too close to me. I haven't been in this business very long and I don't know what it looks like."

Metromix: "If I interview you again in two years will you be saying, 'Oh, well, now that I have a couple ...'"

Sidibe: "A couple what, Oscars? What would I do with them and where did I find them? [Laughs] If you interview me in two years and I have a couple of Oscars, I probably knocked someone out for [them]."
