A Ridiculously Touching Gesture
When Ving Rhames, the star of "Don King: Only in America," walked onstage to accept the award for Best Actor in a Mini-Series, he tearfully told the other nominees how much he respected the art in their talents. Then he asked, "Is Mr. Jack Lemmon here? Would you please join me on stage, sir?" After Lemmon arrived he swiftly pointed to the award and joked, "Now don't give me that!" That's exactly what Rhames did, which Lemmon called "one of the nicest, sweetest moments I've ever known in my life."
