Steve Carell Holding Gervais’ Emmy

RICKY GERVAIS’ Emmy Award is being held hostage by his American OFFICE
counterpart STEVE CARELL, who accepted the honour on the British actor’s behalf
last year (07).

Carell leaped to the stage to accept the British actor’s award for Outstanding
Comedy Series as the show’s American ambassador – and is now holding on to the
trophy.

He says, “I’m not going to give it back to him. He wasn’t there to accept the
Emmy. So what I figure is who ever is first up on stage should just take it. So
I was there. I ran up and I (thought) it would add something to the Emmys. ”

Carell was so inspired, his first-come, first-served mentality has even given
him the idea for a new show: “If you tackle the presenter, if there’s a little
more at stake. A little more jeopardy. I would produce that show.”
