Laura Dern is one of the first to come backstage. She's toting a trophy for best supporting actress. It's for her stellar portrayal of Katherine Harris in HBO's "Recount" - about the 2000 presidential election. Dern talks about being "Miss Golden Globe 1982," and how her grandmother dropped her off at the Beverly Hilton for rehearsals, since she wasn't old enough to drive.
Someone asks Dern (an ardent Barack Obama supporter) her thoughts on Sarah Palin. She chuckles and says she hopes Palin has a "nice life in Alaska" - as opposed to D.C.
Someone else compliments her on her dress. "This old thing?," she jokes. "It's Vuitton by Marc Jacobs." Dern makes a point of saying it's her strategy to support an American designer.

Derns dress buy american.. Huh, really? :)
Buy anything that's really good, useful and beautiful not necessarily just because it's american or not, cause most of the things are manufactured in China or third world countries anyways (like Ralph Laurent's). On the other hand I did not find Dern's dress pretty at all!
Good for her wearing American. I can not even find clothes made in America anymore. Not matter if it is cheap or expensive.
Tom Hanks picked up his trophy. It was big. He walked over to some people talking.
Someone asks him if he likes living in a house, he says "yes" – as opposed to a pirate ship.
Yay! Everyone went home and was happy.
...I wanna be a CNN Entertainment Correspondent when I grow up too!!
Buy American? Great idea, that will solve all our economic problems! That statement reminds me of post WW2 mindset, as if those 'commies' are to blame.
Yes it's an American designer: Marc Jacobs.
But it's not sold by an American design house.
It's Marc Jacobs for Louis Vuitton.
The money goes to LVMH, not an American company.
Doesn't seem like most people are grasping that.
I don't have an opinion about buying domestic vs. internationally produced goods. Just wanted to clarify.
Marc Jacobs works for Louis Vuitton, owned by LVMH, a French company. I love his designs but I'm not sure it that's truly "buying American"!
i would love to buy american. other than autos, however, i haven't found anything made in america anymore. where are they? what happened to 'buy the union label'? we are a mess of a country.
Whether you support her efforts or not, her dress was ugly.
what does "Buy American" mean anymore?
with so many ingredients, components or parts constructed or sourced somewhere else
or American parts taken and assembled somewhere else and then brought back for sale
the American economy is not inside your borders anymore – the economy is global
Why should we buy american products if the price is higher and the quality inferior?
Why not support companies that are creating jobs here?
What's news to one person is "worthless" news to another. I personally found Laura Dern's comment VERY interesting!
It is "Entertainment" news. Geesh, you people are too serious. If I want in-depth news and analysis, I watch Bill Moyers.
Hence the reason you find this information under the ENTERTAINMENT part of the news. Don't think it's news, don't click on that tab. : )
Very good point. Because it's CNN. And nothing screams worthless news than CNN.
As for as the red carpet goes from the Golden Globes – here are
my top three for the evening:
"Bronze Medal" – Salma Hayek
"Silver Medal" – Beyonce
"Gold Medal" goes to Eva Longoria – simple "breathtaking" in red!!!
Americans should buy American!!!!!!
Why is this considered news?
