Nora Ephron Won’t Pretend to Be Happy About Julie & Julia’s Golden Globes Loss

There are two accepted rules for movie-award nominees: (1) Look gracious if someone else's name is called, and (2) Always pretend you didn't even think to write a speech. But if Mixed Nuts taught us anything, it's that Nora Ephron doesn't play by the rules! When The Hangover was named Best Picture (Comedy or Musical division) over her Julie & Julia, she was caught on camera looking annoyed (or mock-annoyed! it is the comedy division, after all) and tearing up what looked like notes for an acceptance speech. We're only sorry she didn't take the next logical step and trip Mike Tyson on his way to the podium.
