ELLEN BURSTYN ? I want to thank my beautiful granddaughter Emily Burstyn (phonetic) for coming with me tonight. I want to thank USA for putting this smart show on the air. I want to thank the whole crew and cast headed by Sigourney Weaver and the producer Larry Marks. But most of all, I have to thank the writer Greg Berlanti who had the wisdom to write a woman over 65 who still had a lot of juice.
