Actor Galifianakis’ Webby honors well-deserved

Zach Galifianakis, of the upcoming movie “The Hangover 2,” is leading the Webby Awards with his “60 minutes”-esque Web series, “Between Two Ferns.” It’s featured on, which is headed by SNL writing alum Adam McKay (writer/director of “Anchorman” and “Talladega Nights”).


The Webbys celebrate Internet achievement and are presented by the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, a group of 750 Web experts as well as other Internet professionals.

Galifianakis won best Web personality/host, best comedy short and best online variety show. Actress Lisa Kudrow’s series “Web Therapy” won two awards, Justin Bieber got the People’s Choice award for his “Bieber or Die” skit and Arcade Fire’s music video “The Wilderness Downtown, ” directed by Chris Milk, also snagged top awards.

I’m immune to Bieber Fever, and Lisa Kudrow’s series didn’t do anything for me. But Galifianakis nails the role of awkward host and he has a mix of celebrities participating: Charlize Theron, Jon Hamm, Conan O’Brien. Carrot Top even makes an appearance. (Remember him?)

When Harry Met Sally part deux

The guys who brought you ANCHORMAN and TALLADEGA NIGHTS have now made a sequel to WHEN HARRY MET SALLY…in the form of a webisode on The web video, that was released today, takes the classic romantic comedy and gives it a TWILIGHT twist.

The video has cameos from Rob Reiner (director of WHEN HARRY MET SALLY), Hellen Mirren, Rob Riggle (correspondent for THE DAILY SHOW) and Maya Rudolph (SNL veteran). Click here to watch it. (Note: It takes a comedically gruesome turn.) Click here to read the news story.


Here’s one of the best rom-com quotes of all time (aside from “I’ll have what she’s having.”):

I love that you get cold when it’s 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you’re looking at me like I’m nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it’s not because I’m lonely, and it’s not because it’s New Year’s Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.
