"I just have to say that, looking at this thing, it reminds me a little bit of the Olympics, you know, the Olympic sports in London," Costner said from the podium. "But it doesn't seem like much of a sport, you know, this trophy here."
Backstage, Costner was asked to explain what he was thinking at that particular moment.
"When you have 40 seconds, a lot of things come flooding through your mind," Costner said. "I couldn't help but think of the Olympics and how a lot of the sports kind of look like this trophy, sports that didn't seem that much like sports to me."
