And the evening's surprise guest is ... Hillary Rodham Clinton's husband. Former President Clinton appeared onstage to introduce pal Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" to the audience. The man striding out prompted a standing ovation from the room, a salute from Spielberg and looked to be pushing Lena Dunham close to tears. Many speculated it was a bit of one-upmanship between competitors Spielberg and "Django Unchained" producer Harvey Weinstein, who are heading into the Oscar race after this. Amy Poehler kept things in perspective by acknowledging the former president as "Hillary Clinton's husband."
