Congratulations to The Normal Heart for their 16 nominations for The Emmy
Lovely time last night at the 35th College Television Awards. It’s been over 20 years since I went to the Academy location in North Hollywood, so it was nice to see how well it’s still doing. And while he presented first, we managed to meet Matt at a good time, so we chatted for a bit (I told him how even before the recent spate of press this week, we knew this role in The Normal Heart was important to him, and I was so thrilled he got it) and of course the sweetheart said sure, no worries to taking some pics. In fact, after my first go ‘round, I wanted to try again with flash and he was basically, sure! Try again with the flash! (My camera, however, decided we had enough light in our 2 shots as the flash still didn’t go on). So, these 2 pics seem similar, but one was done before, the other after my buddy Lou took hers. I like the one where it where almost looks like he’s snuggling into my hair. LOL!! Well, to be hones, it was chilly last night and his body was soooo warm I’d have taken any excuse to keep my arms around him. ^__^Y
I told him we’d be at the LACMA screening of TNH and he seemed really taken aback that so many White Collar fans are supporting him with this (like truly, surprised) and Lou assured him that his fans are solidly behind him on this and all his work. It was just a lovely little bit of time with him (we can’t remember all the details, sorry) but we got hugs and he said for us to be sure to say “hi” to him at LACMA next month. ;)
