Despite the star-powered Saturday night at the Directors Guild Awards, there remains a cloud (and yes, literal rain) on the 2008 awards season. The DGA Awards carpet was divided in two, one where celebs (such as Daniel Day-Lewis, Anna Paquin and Josh Brolin) posed for photogs, and another where actors did interviews. A stunning Debra Messing walked the carpet with screenwriter husband Daniel Zelman. Oscar nominee Marion Cotillard ( La Vie en Rose) was adorably overwhelmed by the awards season saying, "You don't have so many red carpets [in France], so it's very, very different."
But undoubtedly the hit of the evening was the charming Kristin Chenoweth. The petite star of Pushing Daisies did a cute bit onstage with costar Chi McBride in which he picked her up to help her see the teleprompter, and repeated the lift in the press room later. Chenoweth wore a Reese Dwifen dress and tells TV Guide she'll be doing a music tour and an opera in London this May, if the strike continues. If the strike ends, Daisies goes back into production this summer. "It's all good stuff," says a cheery Chenoweth. "Keep your fingers crossed!" - N.F. Mendoza, with reporting by Carita Rizzo
