Steve Carell wins People’s Choice Award

Thanks to all of your votes, The Office’s Steve Carell has won a People’s Choice Award for Favorite TV Comedy Actor.

Congratulations, Steve! YAY!

Here is Steve’s acceptance speech:


  1. Amazing, best acceptance speech of the night. So proud of him and BJ for Inglorious Bastards!

  2. We did it, you guys! Congratulations, Steve! And yes – that acceptance speech was perfect. Love him so much.

  3. Watched it live and had tears STREAMING down my face from laughter. Ten types of awesome! Go Steve!!

  4. I have never found Steve Carell more adorable. Is that weird, considering the speech he just gave?

  5. The cutest thing about this is Steve’s embarrassed smile before delivering each line- I’m pretty sure he’s not a that’s-what-she-said type of guy in real life. It reminds me of the Office bloopers where Steve is constantly apologizing to the other cast members after Michael has to say a really dirty line. Just another testament to his amazing acting that he can play such an insensitive, politically incorrect moron :) Congratulations, Steve!

  6. LOVE IT! What’s with the actors in the audience not participating though? At least the audience was satisfied and smiling. That’s what she said.

  7. Congrats Steve, you have worked long and hard to get that tremendous award! (twss) Oh, he also got a shoutout during the intro song, did you catch that Tanster?

  8. Awesome speech! The audience just didn’t get it though…

    He said “Repeat after me” and they started to repeat everything he said at first. I think they finally got it (some of them anyway), but they still weren’t shouting TWSS in unison.

    Still, his speech was pure, unadulterated, inspired brilliance. LOVE. HIM.

  9. This is the first time that Steve has won an award since I began watching him in June ’08. It has been a long wait but well worth it. I began screaming when his name was read as the winner, and my 6 month old puppy couldn’t understand why I was acting like that. By the way, her name is Ellie, which I somewhat derived from Steve’s last name.

  10. Yay Steve!! That speech is proof why he deserves the award for favorite comedy actor. So awesome!

  11. Finally, Steve winning in that category at one show or another. Step aside, Baldwin. Congrats Steve!

  12. Congratulations Steve Carell, You totally deserve it. Leave it to the fans to make it up to Steve for the Emmy’s mistake. Alec Baldwin’s Jack Donaghy doesn’t come near to the awesomeness of Michael Scott.

  13. Best acceptance speech EVER! Congrats Steve, you deserved it. The only thing that can make this better is ice cream.

  14. Steve you’re awesome man!!!!! I’m so happy for you. You’re the best comedy actor I’ve ever seen in years. I’m sure your Office buddies, specially Rainn, John, Jenna and Ed, are appreciating your triumph, because you believe in them, and they believe in you. And I trust you.

  15. Is anyone else seeing this paused image before you press play? Steve’s face alone is a twss if I’ve ever seen one. And the shape of that trophy ain’t helping things either….. hilarious.

    Congrats on the award Steve – we love ya!

    I know how you feel! I started watching him in September 2008 and it truly was a long wait but it sure was worth it!

    Congrats Steve! It was well deserved and the speech was fantastic! There is so much love in my heart for that guy. He is an awesome individual.

  17. Good grief, I think that’s the awesomest acceptance speech EVER. None of those boring “I’d like to thank my family, my manager, my friends, my pets, my third-grade teacher, etc.” spiels; just good-old-fashioned innuendo and audience participation. Great job, Steve! (TWSS, of course)

  18. Good he actually got some recognition. 30 Rock is great, but it doesn’t deserve all the awards.
