COLBERT'S ROMANTIC SHOUTOUT

He may play a pompous you-know-what on "The Colbert Report," but Stephen Colbert just may win this year's prize for the most romantic shoutout to a spouse by an Emmy winner.

In his own way, of course.

As he collected the first of his two Emmys, Colbert thanked his wife, Evelyn, or "Evie," for being "so cruel and sexy."

We didn't know exactly what he meant about the "cruel" part, but we didn't really need to.

Colbert also gave a shoutout, albeit not as romantic, to another partner of sorts — Jon Stewart of "The Daily Show," thanking him for "setting the standard and giving us inspiration."
