What's really worth watching

Barrymore Takes Her Weepy, Lip-Biting, Sweet Time




    The son of Robert F. Kennedy has been charged with harassment and endangering the welfare of a child for allegedly clashing with two nurses who tried to stop him from taking his 2-day-old baby boy from a Westchester maternity unit. Douglas Kennedy and his wife called the charges "absurd" and said the nurses were in the wrong. Jonathan Dienst reports.

    Drew Barrymore pleaded for forgiveness for not realizing she needed to put a little pepper in her step on her way to accepting her Best Actress in a TV Movie award for "Grey Gardens."

    The movie was nominated for three awards, winning two. Though the loss shouldn't really count against it, as the other nom was for Jessica Lange, who was also in the hunt for Best Actress.

    After lallygagging her way to the stage, Barrymore fought back tears as she gave a shout to Mo'nique for her eloquent speech that opened the night and thanked the folks who agreed to her in the role, admitting that she could be "Jeff Spicoli's girlfriend with the lisp and the paralysis."

    No idea what that means, but it's funny.
