    It's because he hasn't accepted an award in ages and it was the only way to find himself in a podium. He likes the podium, it's the only time when he feels as tall as the seated crowd.

    I like Michael Douglas. I hope his doctors are right and he fully recovers. Danny Devito is a nice guy.

    One of the best actor in Hollywood, I pray that he will OK.

    Love you Michael Douglas

    My thoughts are with Michael Douglas. He has had a rough year : First his son Cameron and a drug problem. Then his bitter and greedy ex-wife tries to milk more money out of him. It is never easy to get a cancer diagnosis, but I have read about throat cancer on the internet and feel somewhat encouraged for Michael. When there is no surgery it means it is only an intermediate grade cancer versus advanced, which is good news. I pray for you Michael, good luck.

    Re: ParalyZzzZzer – What a mean and nasty comment about Mr. DeVito. You must be so proud of yourself, would you say that to Mr. DeVito's face ? Also, you should know that a lot of women love shorter men, they are most of the time nicer that the tall conceited God's gifts to women.

    I have a problem with the media thing of a "tumor" Never was the "CANCER" word mentioned. Trust me, if the guy is having chemo and radiation he has CANCER.

    Over many decades, most times, Michael Douglas always gave you your money's worth for the movies he was in.

    I hope he comes through this trial. My ex-brother-in-law died very quickly through this ordeal Hopefully, they caught this disease much sooner.

    Many years ago, I passed him in the entrance of the Biltmore, in Santa Barbara and he was dressed like Gordon Gekko…yummy.
    He was certainly very dapper looking.

    Good luck and many blessings, Michael.

    I KNOW DANNY AND MICHAEL WERE ROOMMATES IN NEW YORK IN A TINY APARTMENT BEFORE THEY WERE BOTH FAMOUS MANY YEARS AGO.
    THEY ARE VERY CLOSE.
