British starlet Carey Mulligan, who was nominated as best actress for An Education, yelped as a waiter trod on her long train and later had a lengthy chat with Oscar-winning best director Kathryn Bigelow.

Despite being one of the stars of the show Mulligan admitted she had no job lined up for after the Oscars.

“I’m using this as an open casting,” she told The Daily Telegraph. “It’s been wild, awesome. My mum was crying like it was a Broadway show tonight. Kathryn Bigelow is fantastic. I’m so happy for her and she’s been so nice about our film.”

Mulligan, 24, in a strapless Prada gown, said it hadn’t been easy adapting to Oscar week, saying she was a bit of a tomboy. “It’s difficult for women because you have to think about the clothes and the shoes and I’m more of a flats girl,” she said.

She realised how far she has come as she presented an award at the ceremony along with Avatar star Zoe Saldana.

“I looked over at Quentin Tarantino and he was looking at me. It was amazing,” she said.

Alec Baldwin blogged about the Academy Awards and the Vanity Fair Oscar Party and mentioned several things he will remember most from the night. Carey was one of the memorable moments!
