Wow, Sally Field wins for “Brothers and Sisters” and takes a stand

SallyfieldstageSally Field just triumphed as lead actress in a drama for ABC’s frosh "Brothers and Sisters." That’s huge for the show, and something I didn’t see coming given her competish.

I couldn’t hear her on stage remarks but there’s been a hubbub backstage because some of them were apparently bleeped out on the telecast.

When she came backstage, looking absolutely fabulous, Field reiterated her firm belief that "if mothers ruled the world there would be no wars." When it was pointed out to her that those remarks were sure to be picked up widely tomorrow and undoubtedly put her in the line for harsh criticism, she said "oh well…I’ve been there before."
