Did you watching the Golden Globes pre-show on NBC? Not too many journalists paid much attention to it in the Press Room. It was hosted by Tiki Barber, Nancy O'Dell and Brooke Burke - the swimsuit model who won the last season of "Dancing With the Stars." From the sound of it, she's been tapped to ask celebs "The Heath Ledger Question" (insert sad face here before asking how they feel about Ledger's posthumous nomination for his work in "The Dark Knight").
O'Dell - God bless her - is still trying to get Beyonce to admit she married Jay-Z last April, and Beyonce is still dodging the question. "How does it feel to be married," O'Dell queried. "It feels wonderful that all these things are happening in my life," Beyonce skillfully sidestepped.
The three hosts are smooth - no major missteps, but no fun, spontaneous moments, either. And they seem to know the names of all the actors' spouses. Maybe it has something to do with the stack of cue cards they're holding.
Incidentally, my laptop has locked up. The keyboard is frozen, and I can't even turn it off. The rest of my blogs will be sent to you via BlackBerry, so excuse me in advance for any and all typos.
