Thanks, Kevin. No, We Really Mean It … Thanks a Lot …

Creative Artists Agency partner Kevin Huvane was one of the most-thanked people onstage at the Golden Globes. Sarah Jessica Parker, winner of the award for actress in a comedy or musical TV series, walked to the podium and said, before thanking anyone else: “Kevin Huvane. Because I want to be on the good side.” A longtime client of Mr. Huvane, Ms. Parker thanked him again later in her speech, saying, “I said `Kevin Huvane.”’ Meryl Streep thanked him by name, as did Renee Zellweger, who said “all my friends at CAA, [Joel] Brandt, Bryan [Lourd] and Kevin [Huvane].” Other winners repped by CAA: Al Pacino, Sean Penn and Jeffrey Wright. Bill Murray, who was represented by CAA when he was cast in “Lost in Translation,” announced he no longer had an agent. CAA reps six of the 14 performers who won TV or film awards at the 61st Globes (not including Mr. Murray), the most of any agency. Among the big agencies, ICM reps four performer-winners (as well as most elements in both best picture winners, among others); William Morris Agency reps one performer winner. So Kevin, what can Blink say except thanks, gracias, merci and gee, thanks a lot.
