BREAKING NEWS: Al Gore just told us that he isn’t running for president and congratulated the Academy for going green this year.
OK, back to the show: Sally Field has just won the Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for “Brothers & Sisters.” She plays Nora Walker on the ABC show, the mother of five adult children, including a son sent to serve in Iraq. Field was giving a terrific speech about motherswhen that damned orchestra ruined her flow. But she collected herself to finish strong: “Let’s face it, if mothers ruled the world, there wouldn’t be any goddamed wars in the first place!”
This is Field’s third Emmy.
