The Late Late Show Wins Two Emmy Awards


>>James: THANKS FOR BEING HERE. I HAVE TO SELL YOU– TELL YOU,
YOU HAVE JOINED US ON A VERY, VERY HAPPY DAY HERE AT THE
“LATE, LATE SHOW,” HAVEN’T THEY, REG, BECAUSE YOU KNOW, THE EMMYS
ARE ON SUNDAY NIGHT, THE EMMYS. BUT BECAUSE THERE’S SO MANY,
THEY ACTUALLY SPLIT THE EMMY AWARDS OVER TWO WEEKENDS. THISSIER WE WERE NOMINATED FOR
FOUR EMMY AWARDS WHICH BLEW OUR MINDS. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
AND THIS WEEKEND TWO OF THOSE AWARDS WERE GIVEN OUT. AND WE WERE UP FOR OUTSTANDING
INTERACTIVE PROGRAM WHICH IS BECAUSE OF OUR DIGITAL CONTENT. AND WE WERE LIKE, WE WERE UP
AGAINST SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE, AND TALKING DEAD, AND CONAN AND GAME
OF THRONES. SO WE WERE LIKE, WE WERE LIKE,
OKAY, I THINK– WE’RE PRETTY HONEST GUYS. I THINK WE ALL KNOW WHO IS FIFTH
ON THAT LIST. BUT JOYOUS TO BE NOMINATED AND
IT WILL BE GREAT TO GO. AND THEN THE WEIRDEST THING
HAPPENED. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
WAIT, WAIT, SO JUST SO INCREDIBLE FOR US, BECAUSE
WE– WE, WE TRY SO HARD TO PUT OUR DIGITAL CONTENT AND THE
STUFF THAT GOES OUT ON YOUTUBE, AND EVERYONE THAT WATCHES IT. AND THEN THE OTHER AWARD WE WERE
UP FOR WAS THE VARIETY SPECIAL. WE DID A CARPOOL KARAOKE PRIME
TIME SPECIAL, THE NETWORK VERY KINDLY GAVE US A SHOW. AND WE THREW EVERYTHING WE HAD
AT IT. AND IF YOU THOUGHT THE
COMPETITION OF THE LAST ONE WAS TOUGH, WE WERE UP AGAINST THE
KENNEDY CENTER HONORS, AMY SCHUMER’S LIVE SPECIAL ON HBO,
BEYONCE’S LEMONADE, AND ADELE LIVE AT RADIO CITY. SO I THINK WE COULD ALL AGREE
THAT EVERY TIME YOU GO TO AN AWARD SHOW WHERE EITHER ADELE OR
BEYONCE OR AMY SHEUM REMEMBER NOMINATED, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO
WIN. SO WE ALL HAD OUR CLAPPING FACES
READY AND THE STRANGEST THING. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
AND WE– WE WERE OVERWHELMED BY IT, ALL OF US. WE NEVER, EVER THOUGHT THAT THIS
WOULD BE, LIKE, YOU KNOW, WE DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IF ANYBODY WAS
REALLY WATCHING. BUT THE FACT THAT YOU ARE, AND
THE FACT THAT YOU WATCH OUR SHOW AND THAT YOU HAVE LIKED OUR SHOW
AND YOU WATCH IT ON YOUTUBE, THIS IS JUST A THING THAT WE
HOPE THAT YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THAT WE DON’T HAVE THESE WITHOUT
YOU. AND YOU BEING THERE, AND FROM
THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS, THIS MEANS THE WORFdÑ TO US. AND WE DON’T– WE DON’T CARE
ABOUT NEXT SUNDAY, NOW, WE DON’T EVEN CARE. BASICALLY WE ARE GOING TO BE
DRUNK ALL WEEK. (CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
SO THANK YOU SO MUCH. IT WAS A GREAT THING.
