Ricky Disses the Competition

While presenting the award for outstanding variety, music or comedy show, Ricky Gervais admitted that he prefers the Emmys to the Golden Globes because there aren't any hot movie stars to make him feel bad. "In this room I'm probably above average. Steve Carrell is considered handsome…it's amazing," he quipped. But Jon Stewart – accepting the award for The Daily Show – had the last laugh: "We're just happy to be here looking more handsome than Ricky Gervais."
