Steve Carell paid tribute to the Dalai Lama and Mahatma Gandhi. “If I had any familiarity at all with your teachings, I would not be the man I am today,” said the comedic performance winner.

“Superman Returns” stars Kevin Spacey, Kate Bosworth and Brandon Routh feted “Batman Begins'” Christian Bale with the hero kudo; Bale promptly thanked helmer Christopher Nolan “for getting rid of those bloody nipples” on the Batsuit before taunting Routh: “I’m sorry, Superman, but Batman is the badass!”
