Kathy Griffin wins another Schmemmy and 'F--ing Matt Damon' is still all the rage

Kathygriffin_l Winning a second Emmy would normally be enough to get you off of the D-list, but taking home the trophy for best reality show will always be D-list. Right?

The Creative Arts Primetime Emmys were held Saturday night in Los Angeles, and Kathy Griffin, who’s dubbed them the "Schmemmys" because they’re given out before the actual Emmy broadcast (Sept. 21 this year), once again accepted the award for her Bravo series My Life on the D-List. According to Gold Derby by Tom O’Neil, she started her speech with "Well, well, well! Here we go again, f—ers. Here we go again!" (I still don’t get why she got in so much trouble last year.) Apparently, she and Cesar Millan weren’t the biggest stars in attendance for once. She continued: "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."

Speaking of making love, Sarah Silverman also accepted an award Saturday night for "I’m F—ing Matt Damon," which earned an Emmy for its original music and lyrics. According to People, she acknowledged her ex gracefully: "Thanks to the person for whom this whole video was made: Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart — ohh, who’ll always have a place in my heart."

    A well deserved Emmy. Especially for her show where she spent time with the injured US soldiers.

  • Smoochie

    My life on the D list. One of the best things on TV. 30 Rock is great. Why not let Kathy on the real Emmy’s. Oh yeah.

  • R.D.

    WTF! How come these aren’t part of the “REAL” Emmys? Maybe if the Emmys stopped including shows like DHW in the Comedy category and let D-List in instead. Yeah, I could go for that.

    This past season was the best yet. So, Kathy, get ready for a three-peat!
    And how giddy am I that Emmy even muttered Battlestar Galactica’s name? Twice even!

    wade robson FINALLY gets rewarded for his brilliance. the “hummingbird” routine was fantastic!!

    Damn, I can’t understand why Cynthia Nixon won guest actress in a drama for SVU. Shes a terrific actress usually, but this performance and character were so over the top and cliche that she was actually pretty painful to watch.
    Anjelica Huston should have won for her powerful work on Medium.

  • Delon

    You go, Kathy !!!

  • Snarf

    Awesome. Hope she starts referring to them as “the twins” next year on the D-list.

    As much as I enjoy the Matt Damon hilarity (it took that many people to write that)? – the person who deserves an award for that is Matt Damon – he’s the one that made it funny.
    Did that song beat the songs from FOTC? If so, that is a real crime. FOTC is just as funny, their lyrics more clever and their music, well… it actually is music.

    Kathy Griffin has won an emmy but The Wire hasn’t. Thats all I have to say.

  • Kat

  • v washington

  • Ellipsian

    Kudos, Kathy! Good luck at the Grammys (although, just between us, the album wasn’t great…)!

    Kathy – You’re the BEST! Didn’t miss a show this season. Your Mom is a jewel and the travel really makes it even better… Hope you’ve found happiness after Matt and “Woz”, you deserve it! Congrats on Schmemmy II
