"It's a room full of excitement. It's a room full of sweat," recalls Ellen Burstyn, who won her Oscar in 1975 for Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore. "It's your bar mitzvah times a million," says director-writer Jason Reitman, a four-time nominee (Up in the Air, Juno) who remembers getting over his loss with a post-show visit to In-N-Out Burger.

Ultimately, the pair decides — after upping the sexual tension by taking a guided tour of the tattoos on Boyd's naked torso — to re-create Boyd's ink on one of the body parts in Paxton's own morgue as a stand-in.
