My Oscars and Emmys
It was three years ago when Dan Harmon (Community), Rob Schrab (The Sarah Silverman Program) and myself (Rejectedjokes.com) wrote Hugh Jackman’s musical opening number for the 81st Annual Academy Awards. We decided that because of the recession, the musical opening number should have no budget. It was an amazing experience and somehow the three of us came away with Emmys for our work on the Academy Awards. I figured with the Oscars airing tonight, why not repost the Oscar video, the Emmy acceptance speech and an interview I did three years ago for MakingOf about the whole process. Bottom line- Rob Schrab is a creative mastermind and Dan Harmon is a genius. Still to this day, none of this feels real.
