Last night, as Dexter’s Michael C. Hall walked on stage to accept the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television Drama, some in the media, and in the live audience, made some unfortunate comments about the cap he was wearing.
Hall had revealed last week that he was on the road to recovery after secretly battling Hodgkin’s lymphoma. But, obviously, not everyone got the memo. On the live blog for MacLeans, Brian D. Johnson wrote, “Michael C. Hall wins best actor in a TV drama series for Dexter. He looks like a bit of a psycho cause he’s wearing a black toque. What’s up with that?” And the NY Times The Moment blog tweeted, “Is Michael C Hall playing Bob Marley in an upcoming movie? Don’t get the hat or what is hiding under it?” (In their defense they did remove the tweet after catching some backlash for the comment.)
But even if some didn’t get his new accessory, Hall was still having fun with it. After his win, he joked, “It is nice to have a justifiable excuse for accessorizing.” He also told reporters that his Japanese hat was “pretty simple but maybe a little fancier than your normal thing.”
But, some are suggesting that one of Michael’s fellow nominees, Big Love’s Bill Paxton, had worse even things to say about the actor. While the camera cut to Paxton after Hall was announced as the category’s winner, it appeared Paxton had less than complimentary things to say about Hall. The NY Post’s Jarett Wieselman pointed out Paxton’s gaffe today, saying, “I’m no lip reader, but it looks suspiciously like the Big Love loser says something about “the cancer card” when the camera cuts to him during Michael’s walk to the podium.” While others speculate he said, “I can’t believe I lost to an as*hole.” Either way, its not good. Take a look at the clip below and judge for yourself.
