Zach Braff and Amber Tamblyn

Scrubs doc Zach Braff and Joan of Arcadia star Amber Tamblyn struggled through the usual lame patter while presenting the award for best supporting actress in a drama. (Tamblyn described the nominees’ characters as smart, manipulative, sexy, treacherous, or alcoholic, to which Braff’s scripted reply was: ”Reminds me of theater camp.”) But then, Braff got off this line, asking Tamblyn: ”Don’t you know God? Couldn’t we get a better joke than that?” Maybe she just got you one, Zach.
