Marc and Jennifer strutted their selves on the red carpet, again

At the 64th Golden Globe Awards held in Hollywood last night, the Marnifers strolled into the event upon Jennifer's invitation to present an award. Highlights of the event were "Babel" winning Best Motion Picture - Drama, Helen Mirren winning Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture - Drama, Forest Whitaker winning Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Drama, and Martin Scorsese, "The Departed" winning Best Director - Motion Picture.

On the heels of a fitting agreement the Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which presents the annual Golden Globe Awards, announced last Wednesday that it had reached an agreement with the Internal Revenue Service to satisfy past tax obligations on the plush gift packages given to awards-show presenters. The results, no such swag will be handed out at this year’s show, to be held Monday at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, said HFPA president Philip Berk.

Last year, Golden Globe presenters got gift boxes worth more than $20,000. Each package included a $2,000 gym membership, a $1,200 diamond pendant, an $865 Chopard watch and a $475 camera phone, plus handbags, MP3 players and a slew of gift certificates.

But Berk said presenters don’t come for the gift bags. Yeah right, and pigs fly out of my ass too. I'm sure there were quite a few presenters complaining about the missing goody bags. But don't fret, opportunities still abound for stars to collect swag, especially during awards season. Each big show usually has a “gifting suite” associated with it — a room stocked with designer purses, clothing, jewelry, sunglasses and other freebies for celebs to snap up. Suites also have staff beauty pros on hand to primp, powder or pedicure famous folks, free of charge, of course.
