MEMORABLE POP CULTURE QUOTES OF 2012
Funniest award show quote: Seth MacFarlane
Seth MacFarlance had a banner year in 2012 with a role as the profanity-laden Teddy bear in the comedic film “Ted,” which he also wrote and directed. The actor-writer-director was apparently too busy for Emmy Award show rehearsals, though, because he missed his mark (literally) when he tried to project to the audience as he presented an award.
“Oh the mike’s over there,” MacFarlane said, pointing to another part of the stage as the crowd roared with laughter.
“This is what happens when you don’t come to rehearsals,” MacFarlance added in “Family Guy” character Stewie’s voice.
His mike-less flub turned out to be one of the show’s funniest moments, and one of our favorite quotes of the year. How would you have handled it if you began talking to a crowd, and millions of viewers, and the microphone was several yards away?
