Did you know Charlie Sheen was going to be presenting?
My first glimpse of Charlie was when they showed him right before the commercial when he was putting on his makeup. Then I started putting two and two together.
What did Charlie Sheen say to you backstage?
He just congratulated me and said “that’s awesome.” It was that sweet and that banal, I’m afraid.
Did you think it was Steve Carell’s year to win?
I did. That was what my mother had said along with other prognosticators. I just felt it would have been very richly deserved. He’s just done such a wonderful job on that show for such a long time period. I really thought it would be anybody but me, and that Steve had a better chance.
