AOL Online Cinema Awards Chat Transcript

March 20, 1996

In this part of the chat transcript, they talk to Christine about Little Surprises, nominated for an Oscar for best live-action short. The short was directed by Jeff Goldblum. Hosting the chat is Rosie O'Donnell. Kind of confusing, by the way - there are unanswered questions and no one seems to say 'goodbye'.

OnlineHost: Your nominees for the Best Picture in the Comedy category are: Babe; Billy Madison; Clueless; Toy Story; While You Were Sleeping.

Rosie: I got one right! I got one right! Comedy flick. Hmmmmmmm.

OCA MC: Uh oh. What's your personal fave, Rosie?

Rosie: I gotta vote for the pig, but whatta I know? I loved that movie. I haven't had bacon since, and I love BLT's. The woman who was the voice of Babe is here -- Christine Cavanaugh.

OCA MC: She's sitting down with Rosie now.

Rosie: So, she is here sitting next to me. She is much better looking than the pig.

OnlineHost: Send in your questions for Christine Cavanaugh now!

Rosie: I asked Chris if this was here first voice. Nope, she was Chucky on Rug Rats, Oblina on The Monsters.

Question: What is the world like through a pig's eyes?

Rosie: Dexter on Dexter's Lab. In other words, she has done a bundle of 'em -- and she is a real live actress, as well. Here's Chris!

OCA MC: So Christine, what other roles have you done?

Christine: Hi everyone! I'm gonna be online myself.

OCA MC: OCA Update: Christine is typing for herself. Questions for her anyone?

Christine: I'll be on Showtime this Friday in Little Surprises, nominated for an Oscar for best live-action short. I play a real person and use my whole body -- skinny bod!

OCA MC: Wow! It was nominated? Tell us what it's about.

Rosie: Any questions for Chris?

OCA MC: (Skinny AND tiny :)

Christine: The movie is about a screwed up family that gets together for a wedding and everything blows up! I cause a lot of trouble. Rod Steiger and Julie Harris star.

LIVEONAOL: What's the world like behind the eyes/voice of the most lovable piggy?

OCA MC: Christine, what was it like working with these veteran actors?

Christine: Very exciting with the Oscars. Rewarding -- plus I'm going to the Oscars! Wahoo!

Question: Did you have serious voice training?

Christine: The best! Rod and Julie are spontaneous and the craziest people you'd meet! We all keep in touch.

Question: What's it like being "anonymous" -- easier?

Rosie: Yeah! I can go to the mall in my slippers.


Rosie: And the winner is...


OCA MC: I assume that question referred to your role in Babe.

Rosie: Best Comedy Online Picture winner is Toy Story.
