Conan O'Brien

After 14 years on the air - only 11 of which have been funny - Conan O'Brien has kept on rocking late night TV with his gift for self deprecation, uncanny timing, and the show's unique blend of humor and skits which he helps write and produce - and after years of getting nominated but never winning, this year the show finally won the Emmy for Outstanding Writing for a Variety, Music or Comedy Program.

At the same time, O'Brien has been paying for the salaries of his nonwriting production staff of 80 people out of his own bank account so they wouldn't get hit financially during the holidays because of the WGA strike.

Pale or non-pale, that's pretty damn cool.
