Jake Gyllenhaal! He's here to present the clip for Benjamin Button. I don't know that he actually was, but the way the show's cut together, it kind of looks like Tom Cruise shot Gyllenhaal an appreciative look. Hey, I'm with you, man. Oh, Alexandre Desplat did the score? I want to hear this now. (I haven't gotten to see the movie yet, sadly.)
Jessica Lange and Drew Barrymore from--oh, I forgot, they are doing Grey Gardens, aren't they? Barrymore: "Good evening!" Barrymore and Lange: "AHAHAHAHA!" Yeah.
BEST MINISERIES OR MOTION PICTURE MADE FOR TELEVISION
"Bernard & Doris"
"A Raisin in the Sun"
Here's Demi Moore in white (damn, y'all) expressing motherly pride for "Rue" ("Don't hunch! Shoulders back!").
Tom Cruise, "Tropic Thunder"
Robert Downey Jr., "Tropic Thunder"
Ralph Fiennes, "The Duchess"
Philip Seymour Hoffman, "Doubt"
Heath Ledger, "The Dark Knight"
Big cheers for Tom Cruise, HUGE cheers for Robert Downey Jr. Hey, there's Ralph Fiennes! He has no hair! Must be filming Voldemort again. Heath Ledger wins. Both Cruise and RDJ look v. srs. Christopher Nolan gets up to accept in the face of a standing ovation. "In case he won, a brief scene was prepared of his amazing work," explains Moore. The audience laughs uneasily at "You complete me" (about ten seconds of the interrogation scene). I really wanted Heath Ledger to win, and to keep winning because I genuinely think he deserves it, and I was surprised by how affected I was by his death last year, and yet... the whole endless publicity cycle of Will He Win This Time? How Do You Feel, Beleaguered Costar #15? is making me really cynical. I don't know.
