2008 Emmy Round-Up
by Kevin Crossman

The Emmy Awards were held tonight and The Office had eight nominations... but received zero awards.

Thank you, good night!

Yes, thanks to stellar showing by NBC stablemate 30 Rock, The Office won no Emmys this year. There were two Office related moments of note though. The show's opening montage included TV personalities delivering catch-phrases of yesteryear. The Office's John Krasinski channeled Joey from Friends for "How you doing?" and Rainn Wilson also appeared though his quote escapes me.

More entertaining was British Office star Ricky Gervais who came out to tell the winners how to accept an Emmy. This seqeued into a reminder that Gervais was not present for winning last year, and that presenters Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert had given the award to Steve Carell. Carell was positioned in the front row and sat stonefaced while Gervais mock-insulted him with lines like "I made you what you are and I get nothing back" and "I don't think that's an Emmy, it's actually a shoddy remake."  Gervais eventually ran into the audience to obtain his Emmy. It was a wonderful bit that reminded audience viewers of Gervais' role in creating The Office and why he and Carell are so funny.
