Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Steve Carell accept Ricky Gervais' Emmy

The award: Outstanding lead actor in a comedy series, "Extras" The speech: When David Brent can't make it, send in Michael Scott. Since Gervais was not available to accept his award, presenters Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert gave the trophy to their former "Daily Show" co-woker — resulting in a lot of jumping, screaming and a three-way hug. The quote: The best speech ever, in that there was no speech. Unless you count girlie yelps and giggles.
