Speaking to ET Tuesday, Lisa Marie shared her adoration for both Austin Butler, who took home the Golden Globe for his portrayal of her father, Elvis Presley, and the film, which was also up for a trophy.
“It was mind-blowing. Truly mind-blowing,” Lisa Marie said of Butler’s performance in the film. “I really didn’t know what to do with myself after I saw it. I had to take, like, five days to process it because it was so incredible and so spot on and just so authentic that, yeah, I can’t even describe what it meant.”
As for the star-studded night, Lisa Marie told ET that she was there “to support Austin and Baz and the film.”
“I’m so excited,” she added, “and I hope he wins.”
After taking home the Golden Globe for Best Performance in a Motion Picture – Drama, Butler returned the love with shout-outs to Lisa Marie and the Presley family during his acceptance speech.
“Thank you for opening your hearts, your memories, your home to me,” he said to Lisa Marie and her mom, Priscilla Presley, as they sat in the audience. “Lisa Marie, Priscilla, I love you forever.”
Ahead of the show, Lisa Marie posed for photos on the red carpet with Schilling.
Elsewhere in her interview with ET, Lisa Marie remarked on how beautifully the film ties in with her father’s birthday — the rock ‘n’ roll icon would’ve turned 88 last week.
“I’m just so proud of it all. It’s all flowing really nicely together, to have the birthday right now,” Lisa Marie added.
According to TMZ, the Presley died in the Intensive Care Unit, after going into full cardiac arrest at her Calabasas home Thursday morning.
TMZ, which first broke the story Thursday, reported that it was Lisa Marie’s housekeeper who found her unresponsive in her bedroom. The outlet also reported that it was Lisa Marie’s ex-husband, Danny Keough, who administered CPR until paramedics arrived. TMZ reports Keough returned home from dropping off the kids at school just as the housekeeper made the discovery.
A spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department told ET that deputies responded to Lisa Marie’s Calabasas home at the request of the Los Angeles County Fire Department at approximately 10:40 a.m. Upon arrival, deputies saw paramedics working on a 54-year-old female who was in cardiac arrest. The spokesperson said paramedics were able to help Lisa Marie regain a pulse, at which point she was transferred to a nearby hospital.
She was placed in a medically induced coma and was briefly placed on life support with a temporary pacemaker.
“Priscilla Presley and the Presley family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Lisa Marie,” a rep for the family confirmed to ET. “They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time.”
