Actor and "The Fighter" producer Mark Wahlberg was one of those in the audience enraptured by Kirk Douglas, who presented the supporting actress award onstage, and had a bit more to be in awe of because of his movie's subject matter. "Kiss the feet, right? I watched every boxing movie ever made to get ready for 'The Fighter' and Kirk Douglas is one of those guys. I love him. What he did in those movies. I mean, I'm not ever going to be one of those Cary Grant guys. I'm not pretty, you know? There's nobody tonight that I want to meet more than Kirk Douglas."
