We're getting off to a great start with presenter Jennifer Lopez having to quieten the rowdy crowd by saying "Hello, hello. Mama talking, mama talking." Kate Winslet wins for
Revolutionary Road The Reader and she's excited, but reading a boring speech.
Now the not-nominated Sting presents best song, and anyone who knows me knows I'm pulling hard for The Boss. Come on, come on....YES!!! Bruce Springsteen wins for his song in The Wrestler (Evan Rachel Wood told us on the Red Carpet earlier that Bruce gave the song to Mickey Rourke for free). Bruce says being in competition with Clint Eastwood felt good. They show Clint and he looks scary.
Another personal fave, Tom Wilkinson, wins for supporting role in HBO's John Adams. Wilkinson (who looks sober) is thanking people but can't remember the last name of co-writer Frank Doegler. Wilkinson also stumbles hard over getting out the word "enjoyable" when describing the whole John Adams experience.
Laura Dern wins for HBO's Recount. Something else I need to rent.
