Portman basks in Oscar gold

Pregnant 'Swan' star says baby was kicking during show

A somewhat dazed and very pregnant Portman said, “I don’t remember anything that happened just now. But the baby was definitely kicking during the song portion of the show, the little dancer.” She said the idea of naming the baby Oscar was “definitely out of the question.”

She said when she watches the tape of this night with her child someday, “I will just thank them, it’s sort of been a protection against all the hoopla, the part that keeps you centered on what the meaning is and what’s important amid all the shiny stuff that’s superficial.”
