Douglas! Soderbergh! Candleabra!

You know, I don’t really do television, but I’m occasionally interested in a highly-touted T.V. movie. And I was singing the praises, back in May, of Steven Soderbergh’s “Behind the Candleabra” and its star(as Liberace)Michael Douglas. I even went as far in my review as outright forecasting that Douglas would easily garner an Emmy Award for his performance. And, of course, last night he did just that, by grabbing the honor of Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie. “Behind the Candleabra” itself, claimed the top prize for Outstanding Miniseries or Made for Television Movie, and Steven Soderbergh was honored as the Outstanding Director for a Miniseries, Movie or Dramatic Special. That’s a marvelous triumvirate of victories for a brave and talented team of artists. HBO should be very pleased in picking this up for broadcast after all the major studios passed on releasing it theatrically. It’s a dynamite work—and congratulations to all the big winners!
