Jeremy Piven, best supporting actor, TV series, 'Entourage'
Jeremy Piven was on the set, filming The Goods when he heard Billy Bush read his name over the television set in his trailer for having won a Golden Globe for best supporting actor, series/mini-series/TV movie. It was one of those surreal moments, he said. Instead of a ballroom full of colleagues in formal wear, he said, I was standing in the trailer by myself. Later, he said he opened a bottle of champagne for the cast and crew of the comedy being produced by Will Ferrell.
Piven had been nominated four times for a Globe for his role as Ari Gold in Entourage and this is his first win. He said it was too bad that he wasnt able to have his moment in the ballroom. There are people I look forward to having a moment with. Ill run into someone like Mike Nichols and get a little bit of advice from a master. Those are things you remember your whole life.
On the other hand, he said, The reality is, Im doing what I love. This has been my life. This is the life of a working actor. Its apropos.
