Jacqueline Bisset on her Golden Globe victory: "I was on a magic carpet...and I floated down the aisle"

Three days since delivering one of the more bizarre acceptance speeches in Golden Globes history, on Wednesday evening actress Jacqueline Bisset joined "Piers Morgan Live" with insight into a moment that dropped jaws around the world.

"Did you have a couple of alcoholic tipples to get you in the mood," wondered the host.

Bisset quickly responds in the negative:

"No," she says, putting the rumors to rest. "Sober. And not on drugs either."

So, if not alcohol, nor narcotics, what then was running through the 69-year-old Brit's system as she made her way to the stage? As she revealed to Piers Morgan, the actress's performance was fueled simply by energy and nerves:

"I was wildly excited, and I was terrified. But I was on a magic carpet ... and I floated down the aisle, saw Jon Voight, stopped for a quick kiss," she said of the iconic actor and father of Angelina Jolie, to whom Bisset is the god-mother. "You feel the people there. You know quite a lot of them, and there's quite a few good vibes coming towards you. And you think, 'God, I'm here! God!' And I want to give love. And I want to put out the good vibes to people."

Nearly five decades after being nominated for her first Golden Globe – for her work in 1968's "The Sweet Ride" – Sunday saw Bisset capture the first win in her storied career, a realization that set off a myriad of emotions for a woman who says she's worked on nearly 90 films:

"I felt happy that it was over. And thrilled to have that Golden Globe in my hand. And we wafted back in to do the press room and everything. Everybody was very friendly and 'congratulations.' I didn't think anything of it," said Bisset, who captured the Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actress for her work in BBC2's "Dancing on the Edge." "But, fairly quickly after that, people said, 'there's a lot of twittering going on and there's a lot ... for some reason you've gone viral.' I said 'what does that mean really? What does it mean? I've gone viral.' Then it was suddenly anxiety."

Watch the clip for more of Morgan's interview with Bisset – including the portion in which the actress reveals exactly where she "plunked the Golden Globe down" later Sunday evening – and for the next edition of "Piers Morgan Live," watch CNN every night at 9.

    God. Mother doesn't understand; nor I, how so utterly confused, and why one would want to speak such mean words.
    I know what i t's like to want to love and protect those in our lives, though. Stunted feelings when caring is so harmful. Hope to recover from and forgive.
