Benjamin Button Composer Deemed Untalented by Gifting-Suite Attendant

By

Since we, ourselves, would never presume to be able to define something as ephemeral as "talent," we can be certainly thankful for the existence of our nation's clipboard-wielding door watchers. At Access Hollywood’s Golden Globes gifting suite, Alexandre Desplat, the Globe-nominated Benjamin Button composer, was turned away.

When he strode up to the suite at the Sofitel in Beverly Hills, he introduced himself in a charming French accent. "I’m sorry, you're not on the list," came the reply. "I'm a Golden Globe nominee," he protested, "and I thought this was a Golden Globe event." Not even dropping the name of Brad Pitt's publicist could win him admittance. Finally, the staff explained that the event was for "talent only." "But I am talent," said Desplat. "I'm a Golden Globe nominee..." "Well..." began the attendant. "You mean face talent?" asked Desplat, drawing a circle with his finger. "Yeah," said the list holder.

Luckily, though, Billy Bush, Nancy O'Dell, and Vanessa Hudgens were able to enter without incident!
