Custom Control fail

This may or may not be the best place for this question, so sorry if I'm in the wrong section.

Anyway, I have created a custom page type that has a controller that should pull the submissions from another page's form and display the submissions in a table. However, the function I call from the page controller returns empty strings. Here's my code -- if anyone can shed some light, I'd greatly appreciate it :)

[in the page type declaration ViewEventsPage.php...]

class ViewEventsPage_Controller extends Page_Controller {

   public function EventSubmissionResults() {
      $submissions = DataObject::get('EventSubmission');
      return new DataObjectSet($submissions);

[and inside the layout]

      <% control EventSubmissionResults %>
      <% end_control %>

Thanks again!

already returns a DataObjectSet. Try

public function EventSubmissionResults() {
return DataObject::get('EventSubmission');
