Best Mel Gibson Joke
Ricky Gervais for this gold:
"Mel Gibson. I'm not gonna have a go at him. He's been through a lot...not as much as the Jews, to be fair."
Best Gratuitous Shot Of Christina Hendricks' Breasts
Goes to the Red Carpet Cameraman, for using a Joan Barbie doll as
an excuse to get a close-up of the star's giant giant breasts. And then
zoom in for more. Repeatedly.
Best Accidental Offering Of Beer To A Recovering Alcoholic
to Matthew Perry.
(Thanks to Best Week Ever
for catching this gem)
Best Upstaging Of The Emmys
The surprisingly intense Oprah promos. Go ahead, lie and say you didn't tear up every time these popped on. Yeah, that's what I thought. These were totally better than the show itself.
Best Death Montage Boner
Goes to Boner, of course, who really ran away with this one.
(Not trying to make fun of the fact that the actor Andrew Koenig died this year. But it's safe to say that we all let out a collective "Oh Boner" the moment we saw Koenig pop onscreen, completely negating the poignancy of the segment.)
Best 'This Fucking Guy' Speech
Clooney. That fucking guy.
"This fucking guy"
-Everyone upon seeing Clooney.
Best Proof That We No Longer Need A Made For TV Movie Category
The made for TV movie category. Temple Grandin? I'm sure it's good (assuming it's something that does in fact exist), but if it was really good, wouldn't it have been a made for movie theaters movie?
Best John Hodgman Talky Moment
All of them, but specifically:
âIâm not sure that the Academy would be so quick to reward The Daily Show
if they knew what we used these Emmys for around the office. Executive
Producer Rory Albanese will accept for the program because Jon Stewart
is too busy resting in his bed of melted Emmys.â
â[Winter Olympics director] Bucky Gunts majored in hotel management
at Cornell, but changed to television after his thesis on ice-making
machines was deemed wildly speculative, and probably dangerous. That
name again is Bucky Gunts.â
Best Bucky Gunts
Bucky Gunts in a landslide.
Ricky Gervais put it best when saying "Let's face it. We're all Bucky Gunts here," before handing out the award to Bucky Gunts.
