Damon spent an inordinate amount of time chatting with Geoffrey Fletcher, who wrote the screenplay for Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire.
"We were in the same freshman dorm together" at Harvard, Damon said. "I used to call him Fletch, but now he's Geoffrey Fletcher. I'm really proud of him. He's going to have a huge career and he deserves it. I'm telling him, 'Look, I want to direct. You've got to write me something. How can you write Precious and not bring it to me first?'"
Damon liked Meryl Streep's acceptance speech. "I thought Meryl did a good job of tempering, giving everything that's going on. It was really tough to come out and do this, I think for a lot of people. It feels weird. But there were enough of us who felt like if we get up, we'll be able to push some attention towards Partners in Health, Doctors without Borders, UNICEF, Red Cross and people who are doing really good work in Haiti."
Clooney, fresh off a marathon effort to organize a Haiti benefit telethon, all smiles as he squired Italian beauty Canalis to her the Globes. The pair spent the evening hand-in-hand, and during commercial breaks could be found chatting animatedly with another loved-up pair: Matt Damon and wife Lucy.
At the InStyle/Warner Brothers post-Globes bash at the Beverly Hilton, Heidi Klum enjoyed a sweet end to the evening with hubby Seal. The two nibbled on Godiva chocolate, with the Project Runway host grabbing some chocolate macaroons while her husband ate the dark chocolate almond bark. Also having a sweet time at the party: Matt Damon and wife Luciana.
The 39-year-old actor wore a black grosgrain peak lapel one button tuxedo with a white tuxedo shirt, and black silk tie, all by Brioni, as well as a pair of Ferragamo black leather lace-up shoes.
Anne: What was it like working with Matt?
Emily: Awesome. Saw him last night. Awesome. He's great. He's just made for it, this business. This job, it's just so easy for him.
Anne: And yet he's held on to a certain kind of integrity.
Emily: He's full of integrity and he's super honest and he's laid back about it and he's got a wonderful wife and his kids are great. That's what he cares about, more than anything, is whether they are OK.
