How did Ricky Gervais do? Is Avatar an unstoppable force? And how was "Glee" a winner and a loser?
Winner: Martin Scorsese
The introduction may have been crass, but Martin Scorsese was smart and honorable in his speech accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award, giving a veritable cinematic history lesson, as he talked about his inspirations and his preservation projects. As ever, Scorsese was articulate, funny and spoke from the heart.
If you ever want to get confused, go look at previous Cecil B. DeMille Award winners and try pondering how half of those people earned their recognition before Scorsese did.
