'Scott Pilgrim' and 'Toy Story 3' Win at First Annual Comedy Awards
Back in February we let you know about the nominees for Comedy Central and MTV Networks night for honoring the best comedy films, actors, TV series, digital content and stand-up acts with the 1st Annual Comedy Awards. Well, the ceremony (which was pre-taped months ago) finally aired last night with plenty of laughs, but not much pomp and circumstance for the film related awards. Since those are the only ones we're concerned with here (television just isn't our bag), you can find the full list of winners for all film related categories below, to find out if your favorite comedies and their stars were able to snag any awards.
Here are the winners for all the film categories (for a complete list of Comedy Awards winners, head here):
BEST COMEDY FILM:
The Other Guys
BEST ANIMATED COMEDY FILM:
Toy Story 3
BEST COMEDY ACTOR - FILM:
Zach Galifianakis - Dinner for Schmucks
BEST COMEDY ACTRESS - FILM:
Tina Fey - Date Night
BEST COMEDY SCREENPLAY:
Hot Tub Time Machine
BEST COMEDY DIRECTOR - FILM:
Edgar Wright - Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
The entire acceptance speeches for both Toy Story 3 and Scott Pilgrim vs the World weren't aired, but it's great that the phenomenal and funny films from Pixar and Edgar Wright were given some love. Honestly, the only two film related awards given at the Comedy Awards that received real attention were Tina Fey for her work on Date Night and The Other Guys victory (which brought dozens of the "producers" on stage to accept the award). Unfortunately Zach Galifianakis wasn't there to accept his award (though Will Ferrell tried to take it). The Comedy Awards brought some entertainment, but I wish they would've let more of the winners in film have their time in the spotlight. Thoughts on the winners?

I believe there were problem in the nomination too like Steve Carell having no nomination for both Date Night and Dinner for Schmucks !! BEST COMEDY FILM: The Other Guys ... ??? *Kick-Ass was more funny .. ---------------- BEST ANIMATED COMEDY FILM: Toy Story 3 .... *OK , Even it was more tragedy story than Comedy .. But I wished that Despicable Me won this ! 😉 ---------------- BEST COMEDY ACTOR - FILM: Zach Galifianakis - Dinner for Schmucks *What about : Paul Giamatti - Barney’s Version ? Or again why Steve Carell was not nominated ? ---------------- BEST COMEDY ACTRESS - FILM: Tina Fey - Date Night * I believe Emma Stone - Easy A was much better ---------------- BEST COMEDY SCREENPLAY: Hot Tub Time Machine BEST COMEDY DIRECTOR - FILM: Edgar Wright - Scott Pilgrim vs. the World *OK 😉

The trolls on the imdb board for Scott Pilgrim are gonna be pissed! Glad the movie is getting more recognition.

We don't need another awards show, but comedy does get overlooked. Still, the selections here are atrocious. 2010 was a sub standard year for humor, but "The Other Guys?" Sheesh.
