Colbert, Carell & Stewart Hug @ Emmys 2007
Funny men Steve Carell, Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart share a hug together after pretending to accept the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series award, which actually was won by Extras‘ Ricky Gervais at the 59th Primetime Emmy Awards Sunday, Sept. 16, 2007, at the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
Gervais was not present to accept the award, so Stewart said, “He couldn’t be here tonight, so we’re giving it to our friend Steve Carell.” Steve ran onstage and they all hugged and yelled.
To start off the segment, Colbert came out utilizing a leaf blower, Stewart said his gas-powered blower was not “green.” Colbert insisted it was green. “It’s powered by Al Gore‘s tears,” he said, adding that there were plenty to fuel his tank. “He’s a crybaby. We’re so lucky he’s not president.”
