Robert Duvall is sitting about five feet from me right now – waiting to face the press – and has placed his two Emmys on the ground. I feel like crawling over there, picking one up and sprinting to the men’s room and making a pretend speech. C’mon, you know you all have wanted to do that.
Helen Mirren has just left the press room with her second Emmy in two years – this time for “Prime Suspect.” She also won the Oscar this year and she’ll take it all: “Other years, I’ve sat out there and not won so I’m very familiar with that feeling as well.”
Miiren was asked if she has m et Queen Elizabeth yet, who she played in “The Queen” and won the Oscar for. the answer is no. The Queen had invited Mirren to the White House State Dinner this year but the actress was busy filming the sequel to “National Treasure.”
“It’s embarrassing. I felt mortified and very, very bad about it but there was nothing I could do.”
