Question: How excited were you when Mariska won her Golden Globe?! You were actually the first person I thought of when her name was called. I thought "OMG! Michael Ausiello is dying right now!" Tracy
Ausiello: Actually, he was passing out but if you read my Backstage Globes Blog, you already knew that. In all the confusion, I forgot to thank some folks particularly the entire team at TV Guide Online for their unwavering support these last few months. After September's Emmy debacle, I thought all hope was lost for my girl Mariska. I tried using my powers for good but, alas, no one was listening. But then Angel Cohn would say something like, "Don't give up, Michael. The Golden Globes are right around the corner. You can make a difference. Keep fighting the good fight. Besides, your objectivity as a journalist is shot anyway. What harm could another pro-Mariska story do?" Also, I'd be remiss not to give a shout-out to the guys and gals in production, not to mention our tireless photo team and the folks on the copy desk. Thank you, everyone, for helping make my dream come true!
