The Comedy Awards 2012: The Show, The Winners

Posted Sunday April 29, 2012 11:49 AM GMT

The second annual Comedy Central Comedy Awards were taped last night (April 28) in New York City and some of our favorite comedians including Kristen Wiig, Will Arnett and Maya Rudolph were in attendance.

The awards show honors the best in stand-up, television, film, and online hysteria, as well as recognizing the legendary comedians of our time. This year, the special mentions were dedicated towards comedic icon Don Rickles and funny man Robin Williams, who called himself "one of the luckiest (bleeps) in show business, with the possible exception of Ryan Seacrest."

“The Daily Show’s” Jon Stewart presented the Johnny Carson Award to Rickles, who said in his acceptance speech, "a master of what he did…the man had the magic to make you look good."

Stewart added, "People love Don Rickles, but comics revere Don Rickles. He's the first guy to come out and go, 'What's so special about you people?' He turned it around and showed comics we could fight back."

The big victories of the night included “Bridesmaids”, which was awarded best comedy film and best comedy screenplay, best director for Paul Fieg and best actress for Melissa McCarthy.

Louis CK went home with four gongs including best stand-up tour and best comedy special.

“Archer” surprisingly snagged the award for best animated comedy series while NBC’s “Parks and Recreation” took home the prize for best comedy series and best actress for its darling star, Amy Poehler.

“Modern Family’s” Ty Burrell took home a well-deserved best TV actor award while “The Daily Show” won best night series.

Other stars in attendance at this fun-filled evening included Jim Carrey, Robert De Niro, Elisha Cuthbert and Chevy Chase.
