Actor Jerry Lewis was honored Sunday with the television academy's prestigious Governors Award for his charity work. He was handed the tribute at the Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards, which recognize technical and other achievements for the 2004 - 2005 television season.
"I am probably the most selfish man you will ever meet in your life. No one gets the satisfaction or the joy that I get out of seeing kids realize there is hope," Lewis said while receiving the award. In time, Ray Liotta received the Guest Actor award for "ER," while Amanda Plummer was honored as Outstanding Guest Actress in a Drama for her appearance on "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit."
Awards for Guest Actress and Actor in a Comedy Series was given to Kathryn Joosten for "Desperate Housewives" and Bobby Cannavale for "Will & Grace." Congrats to you all.
