Stewart presented a montage of horror films with Twilight co-star Taylor Lautner and admits she found speaking in front of Hollywood's elite "daunting".

The nervous actress drew criticism for coughing and clearing her throat in the middle of her speech. But she insists her stumble could have been much worse.

She explains, "I wouldn't have been able to finish the sentence had I not gone (and cleared my throat). Then I would've gotten more criticism for not being able to speak at the Oscars - which is worse than clearing your throat at the Oscars. It's all good. There are a few things that replay in my head like, oh that happened, why? Why?

"A lot of it I find funny. The coughing I did find funny. This is going to baffle some people, but I was so proud of myself that night. I didn't fall down or anything!"
