Sean Combs and Kate Beckinsale (in an interesting white, kind of foofy at the top. Also, I love her giant chandelier earrings. What are those, rubies?) with
Alexandre Desplat, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button"
Clint Eastwood, "Changeling"
James Newton Howard, "Defiance"
Hans Zimmer, "Frost/Nixon"
A.R. Rahman, "Slumdog Millionaire"
Rahman wins. I am really starting to lean towards this one for my Best Picture Oscar pool pick sight unseen, I have to say. (Sight unseen is the best way to play, really--your handicapping judgment isn't clouded by your own opinions, if that makes any sense.) He thanks, among others, "the billion people of India." Hee! Well, I think he managed to beat that time Peter Jackson thanked all of New Zealand. (You know. "That time.")
I don't know what Duchovny's on about--he wants to make sure his son knows that he's happy? Even though he looks extremely over the whole thing? He mentions his wife texting him? Are we just trying to emphasize what a family man he is after the whole sex addiction scandal? I don't know. Poor Jane Krakowski, she doesn't know what his deal is either.
BEST ACTRESS, TV MUSICAL OR COMEDY
Christina Applegate, "Samantha Who?"
America Ferrera, "Ugly Betty"
Tina Fey, "30 Rock"
Debra Messing, "The Starter Wife"
Mary-Louise Parker, "Weeds"
But she is very excited when Tina Fey wins! "Good gravy," deadpans Fey. She has always loved the Hollywood Foreign Press, she avers, she always had all the action figures! Aw, and also, she would like to address the many people on the internet who don't like her: "You can suck it--and Babs in La Crosse, you, you can really suck it." (I'm paraphrasing only very, very slightly.) And then she thanks her husband. Hee.
OH THANK GOD THE DEMILLE'S UP NEXT.
