Philbin a loser once again for ‘Relly Awards’

September 22, 2007


— Regis Philbin can't get a break.

The 76-year-old talk show host was overlooked yet again for the "Best Regis" award during the fifth annual Relly Awards, announced Friday on "Live With Regis and Kelly."

"A loser again - four straight years," Philbin said. The "Best Regis" category was introduced in 2004.

The honors went to Neil Patrick Harris, who was among the show's guest hosts while Philbin was recovering from triple heart bypass surgery earlier this year.

In his acceptance speech, the 34-year-old actor thanked Philbin's "ticker" for "failing now and again," giving him a chance to guest host. He also thanked co-host Kelly Ripa for being a "sweet, sweet kisser."

Philbin has also been bested by Darrell Hammond, Jimmy Fallon and Mark Consuelos, who is Ripa's husband.

The Rellys were created as an antidote to the show's failure to win a Daytime Emmy.
