It’s hilarious, as expected. Here’s the link to the video clip:

Inara: Ariel's a pretty nice place, actually. There are some beautiful museums not to mention some of the finest restaurants in the Core.
Wash: But, not boring, like she made it sound.

So, judging from the level of applause I'd say that here were at least a few Browncoats there, you think?

How come Joss speaking about Serenity can give me goosebumps in a split second? That man better never turn to evil or he'll have armies doing his bidding in no time.

Judging by the droves of fans at the Serenity room party, there were more than a few:)

It was a blast!

Yeah...obviously we all want sequels or another series, but look at the bright side: for a show with a 3 month run and only 14 episodes, we sure have accomplished a lot!

I'll refrain from crude humor from now on. It's too weird for my tastes.

Oooooo, thanks! As usual, Joss made laugh in about 5 words or less. "It seems like it was all worth it. It wasn't not. But it seems like it was. lol

Oh, the awards were held on August the 26th.

How does he do that? And did he say "And if none of those guys ever won a Hugo then Morena's going to be feel real stupid up there." I think that's what I heard. Anyways, does anyone know if that's how the lovely lady of our favorite firefly's last name is pronounced? It didn't seem nearly Portugese enough.

That is awesome. With everything (Hugo award, SciFi Firefly Marathon on sep 18, and the whole dragon*con thing), things just might be looking up for us Browncoats.

Sorry for the doublepost, but to Sandinista's question, Morena Baccarin's last name is pronounced BAC-rin. The emphasis is on the 'Bac'. I know, the guy in the vid pronounced it wrong.

I'll just stick a little librarian's plug in here... If you've got dial-up, no speakers, whatever, you should visit your local public library some evening/weekend and just spend an hour surfing all the video goodness this fandom has. I spend at least an hour a week on youtube just watching fanvids of firefly.
