In the press room, best actress in a miniseries winner and beautiful-woman-of-a-certain-age Jessica Lange revealed she had no idea what the slang term "cougar" means. says that when she was asked what she thought of the word used to described a sexy, older woman who preys on young men, Lange said: "What does that mean?
