Asked if hewas looking for love, he said: Always. Normanwas a special guest at the black tie event where Hollywood star John Travolta presented himwith an award for his achievements in sport. Screen star Nicole Kidman and her country singer husbandKeith Urban returned to the event where theymet in 2005. Kidmanwas there to present Aussie actor Simon Baker with his GDay USA for excellence in TV and film. Mega-star CameronDiaz presented Toni Collette with her award. The pair starred in the 2005 film In Her Shoes. To havemy own tribe acknowledgemywork in this way is very nice and very touching, Collette said. Stars packed the red carpet, includingOlivia Newton-John and husband John Easterling. Newton-John did her best to hose down talk about reports her 23-year-old daughter Chloe Lattanzi went missing during a wild night out two days before Christmas. Shes fine, theGrease star said.

Pattinson, 23, had been linked to the Spider-Man part alongwithSuperbad actorMichael Cera. Globes big for our small screen I cant flop, cause I dont care. I dont care aboutratings or opening weekends or anything like that HOLLYWOOD: The small screen is big for Australia at todays Golden Globes awards. TV stars SimonBaker (middle), Toni Collette (left) and Rose Byrnewill carry the flag at the ceremony after Australian actors, including Abbie Cornish forBright Star andNicole Kidman forNine, failed to snare nominations. If Baker, Collette or Byrne are not namedwinners in the TV categories, the awards night held at the Beverly HiltonHotel will not be a total disappointment. British comic and co-creator of TheOfficeRicky Gervais has been hired as the host and has promised to be a loose cannon on stage. Hollywoods A-List attendees better watch out. I cant flop, cause I dont care, Gervais said. I dont care about ratings or openingweekends or anything like that. I care about whether I enjoyed doing it andwhether Im happywith the result. The Globes often set the winning trend for theOscars, scheduled forMarch 7. The box office juggernaut Avatar, which has taken inmore than $A1.07 billion to date, can cement its best picture Oscar favouritismwith awin at the Globes for best picture, drama. Avatars biggest threat is the tiny-budget film TheHurt Locker. The directors race also appears to be a duel betweenAvatars JamesCameron (top right) and his ex-wife, TheHurt Lockers Kathryn Bigelow, althoughClint Eastwood (Invictus), Jason Reitman (Up in the Air) and Quentin Tarantino (Inglourious Basterds) are threats. OBrien popular at last PASADENA: Conan OBriens ratings are soaring as he nears a bitter exit fromNBCs Tonight show, his ridicule of his network executives greetedwarmly by his viewers. His ratings on Friday were 50 per cent higher than theyve been this season, beating David Letterman (onCBS). OBriens ratings have been rising through the week, whichwas an extraordinary one in latenight TV and sawOBrien and Letterman hurling barbed remarks at Leno, and Leno firing back. OBriens team sees the ratings as vindication for theirman. Leno averaged 5.2 million viewers per night on his last season at the Tonight show, Nielsen said. OBrien is averaging under half that 2.5 million this season. Hikers tale for film SALT LAKECITY: The award-winning director of SlumdogMillionaire says he plans tomake amovie about themountaineer renowned for amputating his own arm after it was pinned by a half-tonne boulder while hewas hiking alone in Utah. Danny Boyle says production on themovie 127 Hourswill take place in Utah over 42 days inMarch andApril. He says some of the filmingwill be done in BluejohnCanyon, where Aron Ralstons ordeal took place.
