The Scene: June 20, 2008

The biggest events from last week including Sandra Bullock, Kathy Griffin, Vanessa Williams, and more

Summer isn't even officially here yet, but the warmer weather is starting to have a strange effect. Kathy Griffin gets some things off her chest (with the help of Lance Bass), Greg Kinnear torments Ricky Gervais, and Vanessa Williams sheds her witchy Ugly Betty alter ego to channel...Peter Pan? Of course, Tom Hanks plays it cool — just as we'd expect.

DEAD SLEEP
In an exclusive sneak peek from the upcoming comedy Ghost Town, a spirit (Greg Kinnear) hounds a gawky dentist named Bertram (Ricky Gervais), who has had a near-death experience of his own.

BOOB TUBE
At Bravo's first-ever A-List Awards, Lance Bass relives a moment from pal Justin Timberlake's past.

ROME IF YOU WANT TO
Tom Hanks steals a break during the filming of Angels & Demons (the follow-up to 2006's The Da Vinci Code) in the Italian capital on June 5.

SWINGTOWN
Host Vanessa Williams takes the 6th Annual TV Land Awards to new heights as she swings in on a wire and sings Peter Pan's ''I'm Flying'' to open the show.

THE BIG BAG THEORY
On the NYC set of The Proposal — a comedy about a Canadian businesswoman who jumps into a marriage with her assistant so she won't be deported — Sandra Bullock struggles to get down on bended knee.

EVERYTHING'S COMING UP ROSEY
Roseanne Barr and John Goodman celebrate as their landmark sitcom is honored at the TV Land Awards on June 8. Most of the cast — including both Beckys — were also there. ''That's the one great thing when you're getting old — when you get called an innovator instead of a loudmouthed, pushy bitch. It's awesome.'' — Roseanne Barr on being honored with TV Land's Innovator Award
