Stephen Colbert may not have been able to attend this year’s People’s Choice Awards, but he certainly made his presence felt.
The Colbert Report host thanked fans for awarding him Favorite Late Night Talk Show host in a special message. But of course, his wasn’t just any acceptance speech. Colbert — who razzed his fellow nominees while campaigning for the award — said he wasn’t able to attend the show because he was performing at um…a special birthday party.
“I’m with you in spirit,” said Colbert, who added that three of his favorite things are being a person, choosing things and winning awards. (We’re glad we could contributed to at least two of those things last night!)
