Rosie O'Donnell Trashes Some Major Directors

Last night's National Board of Review dinner at Cipriani 42nd Street was a long but rewarding evening filled with gratitude and sass.

Presenter Rosie O'Donnell ripped into Lars von Trier's movies and said it was OK for her to trash him; "I'll never work for him -- or Woody Allen. Pedophile? Who's to say?"

Other highlights:

Daniel Radcliffe presented an honor to Harry Potter producer David Heyman and remembered when he was 10. "I thought, 'Why is this strange man staring at me?'"

Amy Ryan handed supporting actress to The Descendants' Shailene Woodley by declaring, "There's something about the way Shailene says 'twat' that in and of itself is deserving of this award tonight."

And Frances McDormand -- presenting to pal Tilda Swinton -- admitted she hadn't taken a shower and said, "I hate this shit, but here I am. I'm here because of her."

Tilda herself was not to be outdone. The We Need to Talk About Kevin star cracked to the crowd, "Let's all look forward to the Broadway musical of The Book of Kevin!"

But this was turning into a raunchy musical of its own.

Michael Fassbender made a joke about his privates, George Clooney made a joke about Fassbender's privates -- and there was lots of serious film talk, too.

And swag for days!

And did I mention that Rosie sprinkled in a reference to her arch-nemesis Donald Trump?

("He's a dick. He thinks I'm a fat dyke.")

Rosie's living in Chicago these days. She bought a house (Lakeview area) and has been quite complimentary in her remarks about working and living in the capital of Flyover Country.

Right., That's the way to become famous. Just being an out and loud lesbian. Please. She had a hit daytime talk show for years, then was in movies, then was on The View, and now she has another talk show. She's obviously very good at what she does.

is she only famous today because she´s lesbian: out and loud?

She was very funny last night--one of the evening's true highlights. She went off on how she'd rather give birth to a fiery baby in an igloo than sit through Melancholia again (something like that). She riffed on and on and scored a lot of laughs.

Rather odd photo of Rosie. It has a School Yearbook quality about it.

Ask Spielberg why he claims he wasn't on the Twilight Zone the Movie set when crew members said he was..two kids dead there and Vic Morrow decapitated.

This sounds amazing. This is what the Oscars should be. Maybe if they served booze.

Any awards show with the use of the word "twat" is Ok with me.

True, but Trump holds that against her and writes her off for it because he's a dick.

Conveniently name the bomb while leaving out the big hits. An old tactic for those with a weak argument.
