Please welcome! Piper Perabo in a big neutral ballgown! Sarah Michelle Gellar in sort of fluffy tie-dye blue and white! And a lot of WOO! from a Buffy-loving audience!

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTOR IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TV
PETER DINKLAGE – GAME OF THRONES
PAUL GIAMATTI – TOO BIG TO FAIL
GUY PEARCE – MILDRED PIERCE
TIM ROBBINS – CINEMA VERITE
ERIC STONESTREET – MODERN FAMILY

Winner: Peter Dinklage! DRUNKEN AUDIENCE WOOOO! "I was talking to my mother, and she said, 'Have fun... but have you seen Mildred Pierce? Guy Pearce is really good." Heh. He thanks, among others, "my lovely new daughter," noting that he is nervous at leaving her with their first babysitter, and the audience aws.

Gervais: "It's going well, isn't it? You're so much better than last year's audience! No, they had a right stick up their ass! There's a pecking order here," he says, waving around the audience: "TV [actors] around the sides... movies in the [front and middle]." There's a bit of rumbling because... it's kind of true. Thus, a segue to George Clooney, MAN OF BOTH WORLDS, who is wielding a cane, for reasons that escape me. "It's called a baseball movie that's not about baseball"--so he and "some up-and-comer named" Brad Pitt just traded clip packages? That's... pleasantly random, I guess. A Moneyball montage!

Please welcome! Jessica Alba in a mauvish neutral sparkle and Channing Tatum in no hair! I was wondering what the trend color was going to be this year, and it looks like "melancholy neutral" is overtaking "princessy non-color," as the Fug Girls put it. I was looking forward to a Battle of the Beiges, but these colors look too depressed to put up a fight.

BEST ANIMATED FEATURE FILM
THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN
ARTHUR CHRISTMAS
CARS 2
PUSS IN BOOTS
RANGO

Winner: Tintin, which really surprises me, because I thought Johnny Depp was an HFPA auto-win, but: Spielberg. He UP FRONT is all like "I know you're gonna try to play me off so THANKING LIKE THE WIND." He thanks Peter Jackson, and the actors, and the producers, and particularly "man of a thousand faces" Andy Serkis, as all right-thinking people should.

Also, there is a commercial for a Betty White show about "the old pranking the young," "because at this age, these are the only tricks we can turn." NO. BAD.

Please welcome! Ewan McGrrregorrr! "Bravo, Christopher!" he starts out, in answer to Plummer's acceptance speech. "Nice one, Pops." Aw. Also, there is a 50/50 montage.

Please welcome! Clive Owen! And Nicole Kidman in hair that is not really red enough but my God, that looks like an amazing dress. Some kind of mint green and some kind of sequined embroidery, omg ilu.

BEST SCREENPLAY – MOTION PICTURE
WOODY ALLEN – MIDNIGHT IN PARIS
GEORGE CLOONEY, GRANT HESLOV, BEAU WILLIMON – THE IDES OF MARCH
MICHEL HAZANAVICIUS – THE ARTIST
ALEXANDER PAYNE, NAT FAXON, JIM RASH - THE DESCENDANTS
STEVEN ZAILLIAN, AARON SORKIN – MONEYBALL

Winner: Woody Allen, who is not present this evening. "Come and get it, Woody!" challenges Kidman, because... what? He's not in self-exile or something, is he?

HELP I AM FALLING BEHIND William H. Macy is singing a song that ends in "blah blah blah blah blah"?

BEST PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN A SUPPORTING ROLE IN A SERIES, MINI-SERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TV
JESSICA LANGE – AMERICAN HORROR STORY
KELLY MACDONALD – BOARDWALK EMPIRE
MAGGIE SMITH – DOWNTON ABBEY
SOFIA VERGARA – MODERN FAMILY
EVAN RACHEL WOOD – MILDRED PIERCE

Winner: Jessica Lange, in tight long-sleeved black! I'm not sure whether I'm shocked or not, given who she was up against. "I find it rarer every year..." she begins, and for some reason, they cut to Michelle Pfeiffer in the audience. I'm half convinced they thought she was going to say "to see good roles for older women." She's just talking about good writing, though. Speaking of writing, WRITE FASTER, OMG POST

FYI, Clooney stole the cane off Brad Pitt, who's been on it since he fell down a ski slope carrying one of his kids or something. Which I find to be one of those adorable Dad Injuries, like when my dad leaned back too far in the recliner while playing with me and nearly broke his arm making sure I didn't hit the floor.

I loved Kidman's dress but it did make me wonder how many ribs she had to get removed to wear it. Hooray for tie-dye Buffy; I totally forgot she was still on tv!

I was confused by the cane thing, too. Apparently George Clooney stole Brad Pitt's cane as a joke. I guess Pitt got hurt skiing earlier this month? I don't know, I'm just here for laughs.

I haven't been watching because my heart belongs to Downton, but I will bet you anything the "blah blah blah" song is by George and Ira Gershwin.

No, I know the song you mean and that wasn't it. I think it was something written for the occasion. It only had "blah blah blah" at the end, it had other lyrics!

I love Helen Mirren and she is making that love grow leaps and bounds tonight.

YES YES YES for peter dinklage winning again! thanking his daughter? Awwwwwww

YES for tintin win!

YES for midnight in paris win!
