BEST IN SHOW (2000) lived up to its name last night (22APR01) when it swept the board at the 15th annual AMERICAN COMEDY AWARDS.
CHRISTOPHER GUEST, who is married to actress JAMIE LEE CURTIS, wrote and starred in the mockumentary about competitive dog shows, which carried off three trophies including funniest motion picture.
The film also won a Best Supporting Actor trophy for star FRED WILLARD. Co-star CATHERINE O'HARA secured the movie's third win, defeating OSCAR nominees KATE HUDSON and FRANCES McDORMAND for Funniest Supporting Actress. (LE/HR/ES)
