Congratulations to everyone who won a 2008 ECNY Award last night at Comix. As previous winners noted, your life will no longer be the same though your comedy career will be. The Big Apple's comedy illuminati gathered to celebrate All Things Funny. Here are the glorious winners.

NOTES
--Some of this year's winners have already become HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER BIGSHOTS: Kumail and Lennon Parham were unable to claim their trophies because they were out shopping/working in Los Angeles.
--Speaking of LA, it looks like everything's going great for Nick Kroll over there.
--SPOTTED: Thanks to the live Twitterfall of the event, the room learned that Rachel Kramer Bussel was sitting next to Michael Musto. Also heard several people shrieking something to the effect of "OMG, Jake and Amir are here!"
--Pat Baer shattered the previous ECNY world record set by him by capturing his third award for Best Technician.
--The Best Sketch category brought in the most votes from the general public this year. But it was the Best Host that had the slimmest margin of victory: Leo Allen and 2 runners up were separated by just a few tenths of a percentage point.
--Eugene Mirman won an auction to present an award. The winning bid was $2.

Great photos! And great show everyone - you guys did an amazing job.

Apparently I need to get better about reading The Apiary cause I hadn't seen the "Use Twitter to lifestream your thoughts @ecnyawards during the show for a chance to have them read to the crowd" or, um, I wouldn't have Tweeted that.

Ummm... this is my 3rd win.

Eric Appel and Lisa Ackerman won before me. I have been nominated 5 times, but only won 3.
