Re: Golden Globes 2006
Winning can be expensive:
Award: Actor, motion picture, musical or comedy
Presenter John Travolta had a big kiss for Joaquin Phoenix when the star of Walk the Line arrived on stage to accept his award. “Who would have ever have thought that I would win in the comedy/musical category?" said Phoenix. "Not expected.”
But the victory did have one drawback:
Phoenix lost a $220 bet to Ryan Phillippe, husband of his co-star Reese Witherspoon. "He bet me that I’d win, and I said ‘no way.’ I bet him whatever I had in my pocket,” Phoenix said backstage. Apparently Phillippe wasted no time collecting.
“I paid him right away,” Phoenix said. “He came after me. I didn’t even get off the stage.” --

Least Happy Winner Joaquin Phoenix
When he heard his Ladder 49 costar John Travolta announce he'd won the Best Actor in a Musical or Comedy prize for playing Johnny Cash in Walk the Line, Phoenix did not seem elated. In fact, he appeared vexed, terribly vexed. ''Whoever thought I'd win in the comedy or musical category?'' he asked. Tablemate Ryan Phillippe apparently did — revealing a previous bet when he yelled to the stage, ''Pay up!'' Phillippe also nearly upstaged his wife, Reese Witherspoon, who won the Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy award for playing June Carter Cash in the same film. ''My husband just hit me so hard I almost fell over,'' she said at the podium. ''Like a linebacker.''

yay! I am very happy with all the winners- everyone who deserved to win did. I wish there was room for more dramatic actors because both of the Brokeback boys deserved to be recognized for their performances.
Check out the News Forum for the latest news with a Micechat twist!
I didn't see anyone that I would put on the worst dressed list either!! Everyone looked amazing!! And there were so many comical acceptance speeches- great show!

Moving the Office is going to kill us around here. Oy.
The show was good, I didn't watch all of it, because I was way too into 24.
I caught George Clooney's speech later during the news and I fell in love/lust with him ALL OVER AGAIN. He's so naturally funny and gorgeous. Definitely our Cary Grant.
I thought everyone looked great...except Johnny Depp. I wish he'd just show up somewhere looking as hot as he can look. I'd really appreciate it, Johnny!! I'm about ready to go out and buy the 21 Jump Street DVD sets so I can see him looking HOT again.
If I was a straight man or a lesbian, I'd totally be in love with Natalie Portman, Eva Longoria and Reese Witherspoon.
I was happy with the 'Brokeback' wins. Ang Lee is a cool guy. I was also pleased with Phillip Seymour Hoffman's win. I saw 'Capote' the other night. He was fantastic.
Now I read this in a Boston paper but haven't seen it myself... Apparently, when Heath didn't win, he mouthed the words 'WTF' in disgust. I taped it and will look for it, but I don't remember seeing that...
Anyone catch Harrison Ford caught onstage with his drink? The man's in love with Absolut, however, he should have lost his drink before walking to the microphone. It made him look like he was tipsy with his slurred speech and glassy eyes....
Also, the Most Annoying Award goes to Ryan Phillipe. His focus stealing shenanigans were wearing thin on me. Reese looked stunning throughout, though.
Felicity Huffman's speech was touching.
And I didn't know Hopkins' first name was pronounced 'Antony'. That's news to me, Gwyneth...
I guessed 13 of the winners correctly. Ralphie guessed 12 and truly guessed them all... he doesn't watch much TV nor has he seen many of the movies.
And Drew's Barrymores were showing through her dress. Oy vey!
