Kathy Griffin wins an Emmy and Shocks Again
After shocking the Emmys' creative arts ceremony last year with a profane acceptance speech invoking Jesus Christ, Kathy Griffin won best reality program again for "My Life on the D List" and riled up the audience again, but left the almightly alone.
"No way!" she gasped in her seat when she heard her name called as winner. Upon arriving at the podium, she gasped, "Well, well, well! Here we go again, f-ers. Here we go again!" Looking around the auditorium, she acknowledged some celebs in the audience, adding, "Hanks, Gandolfini What the f! I'm not going to tell anyone to suck it. I would make love to this thing if I could."
Backstage, Griffin told reporters that she toned down her speech this year because she's worried that she might be fired from being an awards presenter next week at the main Primetime show. She's never been a presenter in the past.
Call this year's show the Bleeping Emmys except that none of it was bleeped. Swearing was a pervasive theme of the Creative Arts ceremony, considering the wins by "I'm F-ing Matt Damon" earlier in the day plus the victory of Bud Lite's "Swear Box" as best commercial.
Last Emmy Award of the day went to Tim Conway, the sixth Emmy of his career: guest actor in a comedy series for portraying an old-time TV legend on "30 Rock."
