Golden TV Stars
January 17, 2005
Jason Bateman, "Nip/Tuck" and the "Housewives" took home top TV honors at Sunday night's 62nd Annual Golden Globe Awards, and after the winners grabbed their golden statues, "Extra" was the place to be backstage.
The ladies of Wisteria Lane made their way to our "Extra" lounge, where the five "Housewives" celebrated their Best TV Comedy win and Teri Hatcher's Best Actress in a TV Comedy win. And the feeling among the "Housewives" was one shock and gratitude.
While accepting her award, Teri thanked ABC for, "Giving me a second chance when I couldn't have been a bigger has-been." Backstage, Marcia Cross, inspired by our gift to the ladies of lingerie from Mary Green Lingerie, told us, "I've never been to one of these parties, I'm going to dance naked on the tables!"
"Law & Order: Special Victim's Unit" actress Mariska Hargitay took home an award for Best Actress in a TV Drama Series. Backstage, she told us, "There are no words, just no words. All I could think about was my dad, who supported me since I said I wanted to become an actress. He's my rock so I think I wanted it just for him, and then we got it."
William Shatner was still beaming moments after his
"Boston Legal" win for Best Supporting Actor,
and he admitted, "I was saying I didn't want to
win and its okay, but I wanted to win it! I wanted to
And after eight nominations, Angelica Huston finally
received her first Golden Globe Award for her supporting
part in "Iron-Jawed Angels," but she told
us, "I'm in shock actually." So how does a
lovely lady like Angelica celebrate a winning night?
"I go to the parties, drink champagne and talk
to handsome men."
Jason Bateman, who won Best Actor in a TV Comedy for "Arrested Development," was also in shock when he stopped by "Extra," admitting, "I've never been nominated for anything in my life."
The incomparable Glenn Close also picked up her first Golden Globe Award, and she may pick up another next year with her new role as a police captain on "The Shield." "She's going to clean things up," Close said of her character.
So from the TV legends like William Shatner, to five "Desperate Housewives" who captured everyone's hearts, TV's big night won't soon be forgotten.
