"There is that moment, though, when you do awards ceremonies, and you get in the car and everybody's waving and going 'okay.' And then you get to the carpet," she said. "There's a sort of adrenaline. And I do feel like because I've got a big family — my mom and my dad are here, my kids are here — everybody's sort of, we're trying to really kind of bring the celebratory feeling to it. And hopefully … and so it's just, it's fun. I think we should do this more often."
