Congratulations to Zach! He was hilarious in The Hangover. Didn’t he also host SNL recently?

# 2

Zach is most worthy of this award! Such a funny man! Does anyone know if part of his acting in The Hangover was improv?
“Hey, there’s Skittles in there!”

He’s not really that funny. He did a pisss poor job on SNL this last weekend, he was constantly looking at cue cards just off set, and stalling in delivering his lines.

@Ka-Blamo

That’s his style, if you watch his other stuff he purposely tries to make it look like it’s uncomfortable and weird – i’m not comparing him to Andy Kaufman or anything, but… he used to do that a lot too. He’s just not a typical comedian i guess.

Bradley Cooper is funny?! when? where?

# 6

Director of the Hangover, Todd Phillips, is the winner of ShoWest Director of the Year. Good year for the Hangover boys.

HANGOVER WAS AWESOME!

Zach is hilariously and really knows how to delivery awkward humor.

When did acting awkward become the same as being a good actor? I mean Michael Cera does the same thing. It’s like people associate awkwardness with sincerity or something.
