Griffin's Emmy remarks to be censored

Before Kathy Griffin won a creative arts Emmy last weekend for her reality show, My Life on the D-List, she joked that an award would move her to the C-list. She was right: ''C'' as in censored. The TV academy said her raucous acceptance speech will be edited when the event, which was taped, is shown Saturday on the E! channel.

The Primetime Emmy Awards will air the following night on Fox.

''Kathy Griffin's offensive remarks will not be part of the E! telecast on Saturday night,'' the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said in a statement Monday.

In her speech, Griffin said that ''a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I want you to know that no one had less to do with this award than Jesus.''

She went on to hold up her Emmy, make an off-color remark about Christ, and proclaim, ''This award is my god now!''


The organization may have another delicate issue to consider, this one involving an off-color fake music video that aired last December on Saturday Night Live and won a creative arts Emmy for best song.

Andy Samberg of SNL said Saturday that he had yet to be asked by the TV academy to perform the tune with Timberlake on the Fox broadcast, but he was willing. Timberlake, on a concert tour, is scheduled to be in Los Angeles next weekend.

The subject of their ''(Blank) in a Box'' video: wrapping a certain part of the male anatomy and presenting it to a loved one as a holiday present.
