Ricky Gervais (@RickyGervais) accepts the Shorty Award for Lifetime Achievement
Ricky Gervais (@RickyGervais) accepts the Shorty Award for Lifetime Achievement at the 4th Annual Ceremony on March 26th, 2012 at the TimesCenter in NYC. "It's an award like any other award. Like an Oscar, or a Nobel Piece Prize. Better, probably." -@RickyGervais "Ricky Gervais has proven that you don't need to be on Twitter for a long time to understand that a Shorty Award is, in his words, probably more valuable than an Oscar or Nobel Prize. We just hope this Shorty Award doesn't completely fulfill Ricky's comedic ambition and that he keep trying to make people laugh on social media and on TV." -@Gregory CEO of Sawhorse Media and cofounder of the Shorty Awards About the Shorty Awards: The Shorty Awards honor the best of social media, recognizing the people and organizations producing real-time short form content across Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Foursquare, and the rest of the social Web.
