Emmy Awards
  • Behind the Candelabra won a further three Emmys on Sunday for a total of 11 wins from 15 nominations. Wins were for Best TV Movie or Mini-series, Michael Douglas (over Matt) and Steven Soderbergh. Matt wore Giorgio Armani and Lucy wore a custom dress by Naeem Khan. The report by Us includes a video of Michael's speech and Matt's reactions, also available as gifs here. Yahoo called Michael's win the Best moment of the Emmys. Photos are at Gossip Center, Just Jared, PopSugar and the Daily Mail. Michael's press-room speech is at Variety, and Soderbergh's speech is at Mercury News, with a summary at USA Today.

    Somewhere Liberace is tinkling the ivories a little bit more buoyantly.

    HBO’s Behind the Candelabra won three Emmy Awards for best miniseries or movie, outstanding director for Steven Soderbergh and lead actor honors for Michael Douglas, who played the flamboyant piano superstar.

    “I hope all the people that deserve to be thanked will understand if I say that no matter what we all did, and no matter how well we did it, and no matter how much support we got, if Michael and Matt (Damon) don’t show up with those performances, we don’t have a movie,” Soderbergh said.

    In his acceptance speech, Douglas thanked his co-star, fellow nominee Matt Damon.

    “You’re magnificent,” he said to Damon, “and the only reason I’m standing here is because of you so you really deserve half of this, so do you want the bottom or the top? The top? I figured that.”

    “Matt, I’ve known him for awhile,” Douglas told journos in the media room. “I’ve admired him from early on, with ‘Good Will Hunting,’ and he did ‘Oceans 12’ with my wife. We spent a lot of time together then. He’s the kind of guy I like — no B.S., great work ethic…I said to him, ‘You looked at the script, right?’ and he said ‘Yep,’ and I said, ‘Let’s go!’

    Best moment of the Emmys 1. They Like Mike
    Best received speech hands down was Michael Douglas, who had the room in stitches. No one more so, however, than co-star Matt Damon, who also cheered the loudest when Michael won, smiling ear to ear the whole time.

    Emmy Awards

    They look fabulous. (I ♥ Luciana's dress)

    I think Matt should have received more recognition for his role, but I guess he's happy with his work and the outcome of the movie, so, Congrats!

    Michael's speech

    The photos of Matt with Jerry Weintraub are quite endearing.

    Matt and Lucy never looked better on a runway. Matt's suit is perfect - the tie elongates his look - and Lucy is DAZZLING. They look like they should be on the top of the coolest wedding cake ever.

    Having Matt called "magnificent" from the stage certainly works for me! And Soderbergh's comments were nice, too.

    Max Minghella - a nice name from the past. :-)

    Can we assume Matt is going to do some work on interstellar at the LA soundstage? He doesn't seem to have been in Iceland for the full two weeks he's scheduled for. Have you heard any more on Matt's rumored first directorial effort? If it is really happening shouldn't we have heard something more? Just wondering.

    Re: Emmys, casual LA pics

    Agreed - Matt and Lucy looked great (the photo agencies kept a photo of the two of them as their 'entrance' pic for a long time as it appeared so picture perfect). Naeem hasn't posted anything about her dress on his Facebook page yet. (I deleted an anonymous comment from someone who wrote only negative things about Lucy's appearance.)

    Photos of a casual Matt and Lucy at a cafe this morning (including Lucy with a skateboard):

    Not sure about the extra Interstellar filming - the original Playlist report may have been incorrect in that Matt was filming for two weeks and only in Iceland. He certainly missed the early part of the Iceland filming if it wasn't just setting up.

    Haven't heard anything about the Foreigner yet, but waiting for an interview.

    No word yet on the Cory Booker fundraiser, but don't expect many reports or photos.

    Spotted an Instagram of Matt introducing Mayor Booker.
