When You Wish Upon a Star: "You could be a child, a little Asian child, with no possessions and no money, but you see a picture of Angelina Jolie and you think, 'Mommy!'" -- Host Ricky Gervais on the power of celebrities to ... make Third World children wish they'd be adopted by Brangelina?
Class Act(or): Michael C. Hall, who confirmed this week that he was being treated for Hodgkin's lymphoma, won his first Golden Globe (in four nominations) for Best Actor in a Drama Series for 'Dexter,' and shared his statue with his co-workers and family, including co-star/wife Jennifer Carpenter, in a short, but sweet speech: "It's really a hell of a thing to go to work in a place where everybody gives a damn. That's really the case with 'Dexter,'" said Hall. "It's a dream job. I'm so grateful ... Jennifer, all my love and gratitude. And ... hi, Mom."
We've Enjoyed It, Too: John Lithgow, accepting the Golden Globe for Best Supporting TV Actor for his role as family man/serial murderer "The Trilogy Killer," said, "I've had the most wonderful time creeping out the entire country for the last six months."
The Voice of a New Generation: Presenter Paul McCartney didn't assume all viewers know him from The Beatles. "My name is Paul McCartney, or as I am now known, 'That guy from 'Rock Band.'"
Costume Recycling?: Did Kate Hudson borrow something from the wardrobe department of her chick flick 'Bride Wars,' or hit the annual Kleinfeld's bridal gown sale? How else to explain her odd, white, symmetrical dress, which looked like a bridesmaid or bridal outfit. From 1985.
Worst Male Look of the Night: Beards. No, not that kind. Two of Hollywood's sexiest men alive, 'Mad Men' star Jon Hamm and 'Up in the Air' star George Clooney, were covering up their leading man good looks with copious amounts of facial fur. Thank goodness John Krasinski was clean shaven.
Take That, NBC: "I just want to say thank Les Moonves and Nina Tassler for believing in the 10 o'clock drama." - Julianna Margulies, winning the Golden Globe for Best Actress in a TV Drama, thanking CBS execs for putting her drama 'The Good Wife' on the schedule and, indirectly, jumping on the bandwagon of people who think 'The Jay Leno Show' was a really bad idea.
Second Worst Male Look of the Night: James Cameron's haircut. Which looked much better on Helen Mirren.
Too Clever for Their Own Good: Best Original Song winner, songwriter T-Bone Burnett, took the stage to accept his Golden Globe, waiting for co-writer Ryan Bingham to join him. But most of the audience seemed to miss his witty joke about his MIA collaborator. "Ryan Bingham must be up in the air," Burnett quipped, referring to Ryan Bingham the songwriter and Ryan Bingham, the name of George Clooney's character, in 'Up in the Air.'
They Call Me T-Bone: "I want to change my name to T-Bone. T-Bone Streep," said Best Actress - Comedy or Musical Globe winner (for 'Julie & Julia') Meryl. Eh ... she's won six Golden Globes and two Oscars. We'll call her whatever she wants.
Not So Fast There, Sinbad: During a commercial for the upcoming season of Donald Trump's 'Celebrity Apprentice' on NBC, funny guy Sinbad, one of the new season's contenders, says, "I'm one of the most successful comedians of all time." But didn't he just file for bankruptcy?
Enough About the Award ... What About My Dress?!: 'Big Love' star Chloe Sevigny won the Globe for Best Supporting TV Actress, and, while being led onto the stage, had her dress ripped by the man escorting her. She began her thank yous, and then stopped mid-speech and exclaimed, "I can't believe he just ripped my dress!" And then launched right back into her acceptance speech.
Bitter Much?: OK, so maybe we are a little bitter, because 'Glee' star Jane Lynch SO should have beaten Sevigny.
It's Okay to Love Movies, Just Don't Love Movies: While honoring pal and Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese with the Cecil B. DeMille Award, Robert De Niro exaggerated about how much Scorsese loves films. "Marty eats, drinks and sleeps film," said De Niro. "I hear there are videos on the Internet of Marty having sex with film." We love Scorsese, too, but we don't want to think about him having sex with or on film.
Hollywood: No Forgiving, No Forgetting: Though the Globes audience didn't seem to totally embrace host Ricky Gervais' jabs at the crowd's A-listers, his introduction of Mel Gibson did elicit laughs, celebs covering their mouths and a few "I can't believe he said that!" looks when he took a swig of his beverage and said, "I enjoy a drink as much as the next guy ... unless the next guy is Mel Gibson."
What's He Doing There?: Celebs who make cameos in movies don't usually take the stage at awards shows when those movies are honored. But then, if you were the cast of 'The Hangover,' would you have told Mike Tyson to stay at the table?
'Ava-TAR' ... It's 'Ava-TAR': Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger insisted on calling pal James Cameron's box-office smash 'Ava-DAR.'
With Wives Like These ...: Robert Downey Jr.'s Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical win for 'Sherlock Holmes' came as a surprise to a lot of people, including his wife. "I'd like to thank Susan Downey for telling me Matt Damon was going to win, so not to bother writing a speech," Downey joked. We think?
