Brooklyn Heights resident/actor Paul Giamatti won the Best Actor in a Comedy or Musical Golden Globe Award tonight for his role in the new movie Barney’s Version.
We couldn’t tell if it was crappy Time Warner Cable service or NBC censors that caused some of the actor’s acceptance speech to be dropped out. Giamatti doled out the usual thanks to director, cast (the “trifecta of hotties” who play his wives: Rosamund Pike, Minnie Driver and Rachelle Lefevre) and crew. He also mentioned that he ate “five boxes of Godiva chocolate” while sitting in the audience.
Update: Homer’s pal from his radio days “Dead Air Dave” aka the guy who was Howard Stern’s official censor notes that NBC was censoring anyone who said “Christ” or “Jesus Christ”. Giamatti expressed his appreciation for presenter Halle Berry by saying “Jesus Christ… Halle Berry!”
