The Coen Brothers are further establishing their reputation as the filmmakers to beat come Oscar time. No Country for Old Men took home the Darryl F. Zanuck trophy for Best Film this weekend, beating out The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Juno, Michael Clayton, and There Will Be Blood. Michael Moore's Sicko took home an award for Best Documentary, The Soprano's took Best Drama for TV, and 30 Rock took Best Comedy. Other winners included The Colbert Report (live entertainment/competition), Ratatouille (animated film), Planet Earth (nonfiction TV), and Dick Wolf (Norman Lear Achievement Award).
People were in high spirits at the awards, not only for all of the kudos being handed around, but because of the widespread optimism regarding the end of the writers strike.
Speaking of which, I wonder why the WGA didn't picket the PGA's awards. Seems like it'd be an obvious target.
