It's awards season! Yes, from the red carpet glamour of the Winter Olympics to the Best Supporting Luger award at the Batfas, this week was all about winners. Like Ellen Page and Whatsapp. And losers. Like Tony Blair.
But before we crack on with the ceremony, a Honorable Mention goes to Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie for this post-Bafta exchange:
I've had my anti-monarchist periods in the past, but I admit I was bowled over by the Queen. She is a very bright light.— Hugh Laurie (@hughlaurie) February 18, 2014
@hughlaurie I think you brought out the best in her, M’coll. Especially when you licked her neck.— Stephen Fry (@stephenfry) February 18, 2014
@stephenfry Embarrassing, isn't it? One glass of champagne and suddenly I can't tell the difference between a stamp and the real thing.— Hugh Laurie (@hughlaurie) February 18, 2014
And now, without further ado, the nominees for this week's funny tweets are... *drumroll*...
