George Clooney: Who Bedded Him Better?

One of the few memorable moments of last night’s Emmys was the film shot by the folks at Modern Family. Part industry dig and part self-deprecation, it gave the Glee-themed opening number a serious run for its money.

But the big gag at the end – spoiler alert – gave me a sudden feeling of deja vu. Haven’t I seen George Clooney in a man’s bed in an awards show pre-taped piece before? It seems to ring a very loud, homoerotic, Jon-Stewart-2006-Oscar bell.

There really are no new ideas in Hollywood.

So who did it (or did him) better? Modern Family at the 2010 Emmys, or Jon Stewart at the 2006 Oscars? Vote below!
