    A nice Shampoo montage, including the (in)famous election dinner scene with Julie Christie!

    Yeah, I reckon the old man should get some extra attention in the year he'll turn 70. YIKES!

    Globes puts spotlight on Warren Beatty

    Associated Press

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - It's been 45 years since the Hollywood Foreign Press Association pulled Warren Beatty from near obscurity, and presenter Tom Hanks wouldn't let anyone forget those years long ago.

    Beatty, who will be 70 on March 30, was presented the association's Cecil B. DeMille Award by Hanks for his "outstanding contribution to the entertainment field."
    Hanks kept getting in dig after dig about Beatty's longevity. In 1962, a year after the release of "Splendor in the Grass," Beatty was picked as the "Most Promising Newcomer" by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, who give out the Globes.

    "The folks we all know as the Hollywood Foreign Press Association are nuts. They're cuckoo. They're scary. They're very scary, especially when it comes to their ability to peer deep into the future," Hanks said.

    "In 1962, they peered into their leaves of tea and they rubbed their Ouija boards and they named Warren Beatty as that year's most promising newcomer - once again 1962," Hanks said.

    Hanks then read the litany of Beatty accomplishments.
    Beatty has won Golden Globes in the past, including comedy actor for "Heaven Can Wait," director for "Reds," producer of best drama "Bugsy," producer of best comedy "Heaven Can Wait."
    Other Beatty movies include "Shampoo," "Bonnie and Clyde," "Bulworth" and "Dick Tracy."

    The DeMille Award puts him in good company. Previous winners include Anthony Hopkins, Robin Williams, Michael Douglas, Gene Hackman, Harrison Ford, Al Pacino, Barbra Streisand and Jack Nicholson.
    "Warren Beatty has been the actor and the producer and the director and the screenwriter - in fact, he's been the man many of us have strived to be ourselves," Hanks said, emphasizing again the year 1962.

    It was then time for Beatty to take the stage.
    "Forget about Hanks, I've got bottles of moisturizer older than Tom Hanks," said Beatty, who also noted earlier, "It isn't easy being humble when you're married to Annette Bening."

    The couple have four children.

    "Truth is, I haven't made a lot of movies," Beatty said. "I fact, I think somebody said about me that every single movie that I made from the beginning was a comeback. So, something like this really is enough to make a guy go out and make another movie."

    Beatty said he didn't know why other seasoned actors like Jack Nicholson and Dustin Hoffman couldn't take it a little easier.

    "I don't know why they can't just do what I ask them to do. I asked Arnold (Schwarzenegger) to become a Democrat and he did what I said," Beatty said, to laughter and applause.

    "Of course I'm going to make another movie," he said, and then asked the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to consider something.

    "By the time ... I deliver another movie, you might consider just making me the first person in the entire history of Hollywood to win the Most Promising Newcomer Award again. Yes? I like. Huh?"

    I would be really surprised if the blind item a while back is him. I think it's Michael Douglas not Beatty. He's (Warren) a class act. Nice to see him honored, it's been awhile.

    Yeah baby!!!! I couldn't see it here in Europe, dammit. But from what I've seen, read and heard he looked great and had a great, catchy speech. Gotta love the man. Oy, geriatric crush......

    Nah, as soon as you read drugs, Beatty's out. He barely even drinks alcohol, a glass of white wine at a party is about it. Doesn't smoke, never did drugs. Oh, the man is so boring, but I'll take him anyway.
    I was thinking Burt Reynolds.....

    A few more pics. Don't like Annette's outfit, she usually dresses better.
    The great black and white portrait is of 2004, made at the occassion of him receiving the Kennedy Honors.

    Yeah what was up with her outfit? She usually has impeccable taste. Still, I am crazy about her. One of these days she WILL win. It's sad that there's always somebody slightly better or more notorious or something.

    Oh and he's not boring. He reads a lot, super into politics. Now that's my kind of man. The man he is now lol.

    He looked fantastic last night, but he sounded like an idiot. I was really disappointed in him, stuttering and babbling like he was.

    Yeah. Unfortunately I think he gets like I get: I have something prepared, then try to speak extemporaneously, and start floundering. He should have had a prepared speech, but that's just not him.

    Go a few pages back, I received a complete transcript (+ DVD recorded) interview he did in 1990 with Larry King. It's ver batim (sp) and you'll see how and why he talks like that: very intelligent, verrrrry shy and (this is probably the thing that helps him the least ) a stutterer. I personally believe he thinks much faster than his stutter allows him to express it
    Anyway, from what I read, WHAT he said was okay. Maybe just not the way it came out?

    ^Are you sure we all saw the same speech? I thought it was hilarious and poignant, especially with all the friendly jabs, self depreciating barbs and in-jokes. It's vintage Beatty, the way he always speaks in public. I saw it on YouTube and as far as I could tell, most of the audience understood and loved it. That's not just me the Beatty addict talking. I guess I just share that particular sense of humor

    Well let's put it this way, it wasn't quite as bad as some people thought, but it wasn't as good as it could have been either. He rambled a bit, and everyone listened because of who he is, and knowing that he usually does better way better than that.

    But that was the point I was trying to make: this just happens to be the
    way he talks, period. That's why I referred to the transcript of Larry
    King Live. Beatty's a very intelligent man with a great sense of humor,
    however, he's not the most eloquent public speaker. Partially because
    he stammers and partially because, like I said before, his mind races and
    the mouth follows,
