With An Eye on Oscar, Hollywood Dolls Up and Lets Loose at the Golden Globes
British heartthrob Hugh Grant bubbled, bedazzled and brought the house down with his dry wit. "It's tragic how much I'm enjoying getting this. It's heaven. Right up my alley," he said of his award for best actor in a comedy (Four Weddings and a Funeral). With a wicked grin he pretended to be put out by all the folks he had to thank. "It is with tremendous ill grace that I grudgingly acknowledge the contributions of a few other people," he said.
Only Hanks, who nabbed the best dramatic actor prize for Gump (the movie took three awards in all) dared to downplay the Globes' reputation as Oscar harbingers. "There are another 11 precursors now," he joked. "Actually, the Oscars are the precursors to the MTV awards."
Small-screen winners—the Globes also honor TV—felt somehow bigger as they clutched their trophies. "I'm going to be hard to work with," said Tim Allen, voted best actor in a TV comedy for his work on Home Improvement. "I'm going to get a cigarette holder and an ascot." And Dennis Franz, who took home an Emmy last fall for his performance as Det. Andy Sipowicz on NYPD Blue, seemed absolutely giddy over his best dramatic actor win. Said Franz: "I've been Miss America this year."
And how did the freshly crowned plan to kick up their heels? Curtis and Jessica Lange (best dramatic actress for her role in Blue Sky) couldn't wait to head home. But Grant was going for less wholesome revelry. "I was so drunk last night I can't contemplate getting drunk again," he said. "But I suppose I'll try."
