In honor of the Golden Globes....

... and Hugh Laurie's win (yay, HOUSE!).

I will send you to Daily Show writer Rob Kutner's and Sheryl Zohn's fun recounting of the Emmys (which Hugh Laurie did not win, boo-hiss!).

But this is clearly just an opportunity to relay a nice Hugh Laurie story from said recounting:

Eventually, Lewis Black also succumbed to the siren song of the Emmy bar, and Sheryl ended up sitting next to the aforementioned Gloria (a.k.a. J.R.’s Mom), who couldn’t keep her eyes off the most brightly shining star in the entire theater: the guy who played Bertie Wooster (a.k.a. Hugh Laurie from Fox’s “House.”) As luck would have it, Laurie walked up the aisle next to Gloria. Not wanting to miss a chance, Sheryl popped up, grabbed the actor’s hand, and exclaimed, “We’re with the Daily Show! And this is a Daily Show writer’s Mom!” Laurie graciously shook Gloria’s hand and congratulated her. Surely Jeeves would have been proud.

A few minutes later, Alan Alda walked up the very same aisle.

Sheryl: “Look, there’s Alan Alda.”

Gloria: “Oh, you’re right.”

Sheryl: “Want to meet him?”

Gloria: “Eh.”

Fans can be so fickle.

Now go read more fun backstage Emmy stuff (via Jacob Sager Weinstein's yankeefog).

(Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana just won for Brokeback Mountain! Woo-hoo! I think I'll go back to the telecast.)

Chow, y'all.
