First the people chose then last night the critics awarded an A-list crowd of actors, writers and directors with their favorites. Jason Alexander opened the event asking Brad and Angelina to adopt him before Ben Stiller took home the first award of the night for Tropic Thunder as the Best Comedy. The most moving moment was when Heath Ledger won and director Chris Nolan accepted his award with a standing ovation from the crowd. Anne Hathaway tied with Meryl Streep for best actress and in her speech she excitedly rambled in a heartfelt way, ending with a part about her father protecting her and proving that there are good, strong, loving men out there. Milk and Slumdog Millionaire were big winners with multiple wins while Richard Gere received the special Joel Siegel award for his offscreen efforts.
