Ricky Gervais announced on his blog that he will be handing out an Emmy. No word yet on which category, but here’s what he had to say on the issue:
“Got asked to hand out an EMMY. Nice. I’m there anyway as I’m nominated for the animation [the Ricky Gervais Show] and The Office, so that would be perfect. Even if I don’t win I’ll still get to go back stage and have a sneaky beer. No beer in the theatre! Unbelievable! It’s not in Utah for fuck’s sake. Still mustn’t grumble.”
We’re glad Ricky’s getting the authentic American experience of not being allowed to drink but sneaking booze anyway. Prohibition, senior prom, Lindsay Lohan–we could go on, but you get it.
So, tune into the Emmys for Gervais’ appearance Aug. 29 on NBC — Jimmy Fallon is hosting the show — and to find out which of your favorite comedy shows win awards!
