Looking at her just now, I find myself wishing I’d voted for her in the poll.

But who decided to Jennifer Lopez in a huge piece of tissue paper?

Either way, the people who advertise on this show know who’s watching. That Wh00pi Goldberg commercial for …..

    Ah, Kate Winslet!(OK – 5 years short of 40!) A class act! We will be working with her when she stars in the HBO period mini-series remake of Mildred Pierce. We last worked with her on “Revolutionary Road”

    Oh, and have I mentioned that I am mad for Colin Firth? Sigh.

    I am sorry!!! Credit where credit is due! A little less presenter patter and a little more time for the winners of “The Cove”, a brilliant and important, moving film! Disgusting to have them cut off before they could thank anyone!

    Congratulations to Sandy Powell (another of our over-40 set!)for Best Costume Design for “The Young Victoria”! I worked with Sandy on The Aviator, Sylvia and Far Fro.m Heaven. Her speech was very gracious: it’s true – the Best Costume Design Award usually end up going to the glitzy period films. Designing a film set in the perhaps duller world of the Great Depression may not be beautiful, but the fact that you believe the period when watching the movie is a tribute to the designers that design “just plain folk”. None of the glitz, but just as worthy.

    ALRIGHT!!!! Let’s hear it for Monique – a voluptuous, strong, sexy 42-year old woman who had the guts to shed the make-up and the frills to dive head first into a role that was meaty, raw and certainly not flattering in the wardrobe and hair department!! You do us proud, babe! Congrats on best supporting actress!

    Go Hurt Locker!!!!! The most under-rated, unseen movie this year! I even happened to see it by accident when the film I though I was seeing closed its run and I wanted to pass the time! Me see a war movie?, nah! ..but I found a brilliantly directed, almost gentle and compassionate view of war that spoke of feelings and emotional growth rather than concentrate on macho-ism and politics.

    Penelope Cruz is wearing a beautiful dress, but it’s not for her. Somehow, that beautiful woman manages to look awkwardly poured into it

    M&B are insulting Just about everyone. Is that only source of humor? I think Baldwin’s feigned jealousy of George Clooney isn’t actually feigned

    Meryl Streep looks magnificent, as usual–and she does it without having to look 30 years younger or like a size 0!!
