Michael Caruso won and gave a very funny and poignant speech.
Getting this from her (Susan Miller)...unbelievable. I really was not expecting this. I know everybody says that but I really wasn't. Thank you to Roger and Damon and Kevin for this. I started writing DeVanity because I didn't have the money to pay for therapy. I thought it would be a really nice way to just create something fun. I remember Friday nights growing up the world stopped for my grandmother when FALCON CREST was on. She would not let anything happen until that show was over. I didn't know who Angela Channing was other than she was a crazy old bitch who liked grapes. It was amazing because my grandmother grew up really poor in kind of that other world country, and it was really nice to see her escape for an hour. I always wanted to do something that I thought she would want to watch one day. My grandmother passed away while we were filming Season Two of DEVANITY. Wherever she is I hope she watches my show and isn't too offended by the swearing and all of the disgusting things we do. Thank you very much, this is is wonderful.
