Best I can tell, this is an Australian diplomatic event that reminds Americans that we like Australians. This is true! So many of you are delightful, and we Californians are concerned about all your fires lately. Amusingly, though, this event did NOT have that many famous Australians. Naomi Watts was mostly flying the flag alone — well, Olivia Newton-John was there, although I couldn’t get a whole-body shot of her for some reason. Whither Hugh Jackman? How about a Hemsworth? I’m sure the Thorpedo has some free time! What about Mel Gibson — wait. No. Not that one. Sorry.
