It has been ten years since the legendary Chris Rock
has been graced with an Emmy and last night the Brooklyn native was a two-time winner at the Creative Arts Emmys.
Chris' last Emmy was in 1999 for The Chris Rock Show
. This weekend he racked up two Emmys for "Outstanding Picture Editing For A Special" and "Outstanding Writing For A Variety, Music Or Comedy Special," both for his HBO special Kill The Messenger
. This makes Rock a five-time Emmy winner.
By the way, I am the only one shocked to find out he won no Emmys for Everybody Hates Chris
also racked up an Emmy for her portrayal of Sarah Palin
on Saturday Night Live
. Never missing out on a funny moment, Fey thanked the former Alaska governor for, " being an inspiration to working mothers everywhere” after bouncing “on her job right before 4thof July weekend.”
was the host and supposedly upped the raunch factor. An edited version of the Creative Arts Emmys will will air Sept. 18 on E!.
Congrats to Chris -- and don't forget Good Hair is in theaters Friday, October 9th
