Ricky Gervais was of course funny. Several digs by him and others about NBC and Leno. And this one, "I like a drink as much as the next man - as long as the next man isn't Mel Gibson." Then Gibson walked out to present.
Why did Michael C. Hall have on a knit hat? OK, I googled and found out he has Hodgkins lymphoma and is on the road to recovery. I'm sorry he's going through that and glad he's doing well.
No reason for Mickey Rourke to wear a cowboy hat inside, though.
Yay!! Julianna Margulies won for The Good Wife! I'm so glad. She really is good in that show and makes it what it is.
Yes!! Glee won!
Mo'Nique walked up to the stage on both awards shows like she's James Brown and someone is behind her holding her cape. I think her husband does escort her part of the way. Maybe it was the music. Her speech was eloquent and heart-felt and made me teary.
Martin Scorsese spoke eloquently about film when he accepted the Cecil B. DeMille award presented to him by Robert DeNiro and Leonardo DiCaprio.
Sandra Bullock's speech was so good. I'm glad this is happening for her and for Jeff Bridges. He said they were screwing up his unappreciated status. T Bone Burnett won for song at this one, too. Looks as if this is the year for Jeff Bridges. I hope so for him and Sandra Bullock.
Robert Downey, Jr., gave what appeared to be an irreverent speech which was perfect for him.
Those were the highlights for me. What about you?
