Emmys can't box in Samberg and Timberlake



Tbdandysamberg091107 What's the fastest way for a musician to win an Emmy? Well, Rule No. 1 seems to be "Cut a hole in a box." Justin Timberlake's collaboration with Saturday Night Live's Andy Samberg last December, Dick in a Box, won at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Saturday, E! Online repoorts.

"I think it's safe to say that when we first set out to make this song, we were all thinking 'Emmy!'" Samberg said in accepting the award Saturday for best original music and lyrics.

Timberlake was on tour in Tacoma, Wash., and couldn't be there to help open the box. Watch the show on E! Sept. 15, the night before the Primetime Emmys.
