Zach Galifianakis' Web Series Wins Streamy Awards
Zach Galifianakis' Funny or Die web series, Between Two Ferns, took home two Streamy Awards — for best comedic actor and best comedy series.
The second annual Streamy Awards — dedicated to honoring actors, directors, editors, producers, writers and production talent behind the best original programming on the Web — took place at Los Angeles' Orpheum Theatre and was hosted by actor-comedian Paul Scheer.
On the spoof interview show, Galifianakis plays himself as a clueless host who conducts one-on-one interviews with some of Hollywood's biggest names.
