Yeah, they are a big deal - in saying that, however, they're not massive news in our neck of the woods... but it's a handy bit of text to accompany the gallery - which contains the likes of Whoopi Goldberg dressed to the nth degree, Kelsey Grammer and the latest wife, Mackenzie Crook, Christine Brinkley, Alexa Ray Joel, Joanna Lumley, Alec Baldwin, Edie Falco, Brooke Shields, Ellen Barkin, Neil Patrick Harris, Kate Flannery with LOTS of makeup, John Cryer, Samuel L Jackson, Patrick Wilson, and Al Pacino letting his head be hijacked by Pat Cash paraphernalia. I'm sure he has his reasons.

You might notice a recurring theme - established ladies of a certain age holding their own on the red carpet, while their male counterparts required the arm of someone half their age to prop them up. Just saying.

Of course, there's a slew of lovely luvvies also included which I've not mentioned, but sure you can snout them out yourselves here... Otherwise you can busy yourselves with the list of winners. As you can see, South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker's musical did rather well... 'cause there's nothing they can't do.
