Steve Carell Receives RT's Golden Tomato Award!

by | March 3, 2006 | Comments

Everybody’s favorite virgin Steve Carell had a banner year in 2005 — a hit show, a hit movie, and newfound celebrity status — so RT’s Senh flew down to LA to give the man that coveted golden mark of success: a Golden Tomato Award.

Some were surprised when Carell’s mid-life coming-of-age comedy, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," opened to critical acclaim last year, but who would have thought the adult-oriented pic would be one of the year’s best? "Virgin" was Steve Carell’s first major star turn, and the former "Daily Show" correspondent scored huge with audiences. Soon after its August release it was clear the critics loved this "Virgin," and the film earned Rotten Tomatoes’ Certified Fresh stamp of approval.

When time came to tally up the year’s best cinematical offerings in RT’s annual Golden Tomato Awards, "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" came out on top as the Best Comedy of 2005. Carell himself was not only the star of "Virgin," he was also the co-writer and co-producer (along with director Judd Apatow), so we are proud to present him with the Golden Tomato!

Many thought "The 40-Year-Old Virgin," was unfairly passed over for an Oscar nod this year, so it’s nice to know Carell’s got the next best thing on his mantelpiece: a bright, shining, perfect tomato made of gold. Yeeeeooooow Kelly Clarkson!
