“There is no other award I would rather give out tonight,” gushes Ackerman, as Silverman says, “Nor I.”

It was poking a bit of fun at the awards categories, which perennial reality producer Mark Burnett, who won for “Shark Tank,” took some umbrage to, When he won, he made sure to say that reality shows get the best ratings on TV: “They’re going to change the name next year to the award for the best ratings.”


It was kind of a moment, we’ll post video as soon as we have it.
