I couldn’t Twitter fast enough on the red carpet because the celebrities were coming at us rapid-fire. Now I’m in the press room and here are random notes from the earlier scene. Kate Winslet says she wants to enjoy this time: "I’m not exercising and I’m eating whatever I want." She is gorgeous in deep purple and walks the red carpet alone, husband Sam Mendes is nowhere in sight. … Jenna Fisher from The Office says she’s not sure Jim and Pam would allow the documentary cameras that film the office doings into their wedding. Hmmm. Jenna says Rainn Wilson is the cast ringleader and he will speak for them if they win tonight. They don’t. …My Mad Men crush Jon Hamm went whizzing by with girlfriend Jennifer Westfeldt. Even when he doesn’t do Don Draper, he looks fabulous. … Samantha Harris, Dancing with The Stars host, is so skinny! … Dana Delany, the over-50 Desperate Housewives star whom I’ve been watching since she was in China Beach, looks fabulous in green Prada and tells me she won’t go the plastic surgery route. … Viola Davis, beautiful in golden yellow as you can see here, says the way to experience the hoopla of nominations is to "let go of expectations." … About to see Tina Fey and hear Kate Winslet‘s speech. More to come.
