Michael Douglas gets a standing ovation at the Golden Globes

Michael Douglas rounded out the Golden Globes very nicely last night when he presented the award for Best Picture. The crowd went wild, cheering for him and all standing up. Michael quipped “there’s got to be an easier way to get a standing ovation.” He looked great and you could tell that he’s put some weight back in since he’s successfully completed cancer treatments.

I have so admired the way Douglas has handled himself both during his cancer battle and now that he’s tentatively beaten throat cancer. That was a nice tribute to a great actor and a very admirable man. Maybe Douglas will get some more much deserved accolades at the Oscars this year, which are coming on February 27.

Douglas was on Leno on Friday, and he told Jay that after going through cancer he appreciates life more. “I smell the roses. I wake up in the morning and each day is special.” There are rumors that Douglas is currently in talks with a publisher and may be working on an autobiography. That story seems to have originated in the Daily Mail and I wouldn’t put much stock in it, but I hope it’s true. I would love to read his memoir.





Here’s an interview with Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Hones on the red carpet. They say it’s a date night for them. I love Catherine’s dress!

    I still find Michael Douglas really handsome. I feel weird about this maybe because of his age. But he’s a great actor as well. I love the man.
    Johnny Depp brought the hot last night.

    Class act, so glad he is well (he was funny, too).

    He looked fantastic! What a strong guy. But I have to say, cancer often brings out the best in people. Three of my close family members have had serious cancer (two died) and the strength, humour & humility they exuded was awe-inspiring.

    Well wishes on the recovery.

    Forgive the abrupt segue, but wtf is up with Catherine Zeta Jones’ face?

    How wonderful is Johnny’s expression while clapping Douglas?

    Love Michael Douglas–he’s so handsome and ageless and a great actor, as well. Catherine’s dress is to die for! So happy for them–they are a great couple!

    I got to watch Romancing the Stone with adult eyes last month -since I was just a kid when it was on in the 80′s and uh yeah, he was HOT in it. Handsome now as always but wow he was hot when he was young!

    He is so classy and charming… I’d love to read his memoir as well!

    It was one of the most beautiful moments of the evening.

    There’s just got to be an easier way to get a standing ovation…classic. Glad he’s overcome cancer. Hope he’ll come back with great movies

    Michael’s standing ovation in my favorite movie, “The Game”, was the most moving dejavu and art imitating life. Also, Michael’s most recent standing ovations for his Golden Globe nomination and his Icon Award’s were the most well deserved kudos.
