Live From the Emmy Press Room: Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert


Nothing like Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert to liven up the Emmy press room! The two were just back here in the press room with their whole crews to talk about their awards for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music, or Comedy Program (Colbert) and Outstanding Variety, Music, or Comedy Series (Stewart).

"It's always great to come out here and win," Stewart quipped. "It's a long flight." He had nothing but kind words for his protege, Colbert, whose show beat Stewart's in the writing category.

Colbert, meanwhile, wasn't quite so kind to Stewart: "I've been gunning for him for years," he said. "Even when I worked for him, I did not wish him well."

Colbert was (probably unsurprisingly) a total goofball on stage, running around and clinking Emmys with his whole writing staff. As for insulting the Emmy chairman a couple of nights ago on his show? "I believe calling John Schaffner a world-class a-hole is what got me this award," he said.

Oh gosh, I love these two knuckleheads. I want them to come to my house so I can fix them lunch, and they, in return, can make me giggle. What a phenomenal pair! *[That's what she said.]* {{Yes, I know. That is a line from their other friend and former Daily Show crony, but when speaking of John and Stephen, it's hard to exclude Steve. They're such a clever trio.}}

What is Stephen going to rant about this week now that he actually won? Maybe he can have Don Rickles in so he can gloat.

I love these two. Especially since they don't take the whole awards thing so seriously.

Did he really say "a-hole"? I hope that's the case, as a-hole is so much funnier than the word it's meant to replace.
