Will Brad make the call?

There are a lot of jokes made about the members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Assn., but the appearance by HFPA president Dr. Aida Takla O'Reilly won't do much to dispel that notion. O'Reilly asked the cameras to scan the room to take in the assembled talent (they didn't). Then she made reference to disappearing into the "delta twilight" and finally ended with a personal message to nominee Bradley Cooper. "Call me, baby." Cooper's response? He could be seen mouthing the words, "Wow. OK."
