It was the night everyone in TV has been waiting for, the tribute to James Burrows — easily one of the greatest directors in television history. Here is the roundup of the best show moments from his big night!
What a night! James’ big event, honored his amazing work as a television director and featured appearances by the casts of hit shows. Obviously, we loved, loved, loved seeing the cast of Taxi, Cheers, Frasier, Will & Grace and Mike & Molly, but the big must-see of the night was the cast reunion of Friends.
The night started out with Sean Hayes, Eric McCormack, and Megan Mullally all reunited on stage and it was hilarious. The best part was when Sean stated that “Karen Walker’s” character would be dead right now and Megan stated that was false. In fact, Karen would be married to Donald Trump! Too funny! Another hilarious moment was when Kelsey Grammer did a handful of impersonations from all different characters. Our favorites were his Sheldon from BigBangTheory and his Joey from Friends.
Seeing Jon Cryer and Charlie Sheen back together was pure awesomeness. Jon started off first with the digs and said that James’ only love 1 & 1/2 of the men on their show — awkward. Then there was one of our favorite moments — the moment Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, David Schwimmer and Matt LeBlanc stepped on stage together one more time. They discussed which episodes really stuck out to them, and Jennifer nailed it by mentioning the flash back episodes. Hello, you didn’t LOVE pre-nose job Rachel, fat Monica and big fro Ross!
Oh, and Danny DeVito won for best comedian tonight — he literally grabbed his groin not once, but twice on stage with the former cast of Taxi. What a character!
