Dude the guy deserves the award. He's been working since the sixty's, did hundreds of great shows, makes the crowd laugh, is fun to watch, not to mention worked like crazy with who wants to be a millionaire & regis and kathy & regis & kelly(all at the same time), He's 80 and still working hard, & could've retired years ago but obviously loves what he does. Lifetime achievement? HELL YES, go Reg. (in case you're stupid & don't know what lifetime achievement means, its dedicating your whole life to a profession you love & getting recognized for doing so, thus making him, FULL DESERVING OF THIS AWARD)

@@ great !
You can't own a small truck like that and sign a contract that states what the film is doing and claim not to know a thing.i agree that finding the perfect match isn’t easy, but you will find him or she when the right time comes.Every love story will unfold on it's own. Start your own wealthy love story for real at Richfriends.org-is meant to be the place to connect with beautiful and successful friends !

I honestly think that Regis is tuthfully too old to continue doing the show. I wouldn't really say old, but has done the show too long. The only thing that really bugs me is his sense on entitlement to get paid a certain amount. I seriously love how they said that 18 million a year wasn't enough. Are you kidding me? I could live the rest of my life modestly on a million dollars period. Do you know how many people can be helped around the world on 18 million dollars. That is ridiculous. Yes even him should ave taken a paycut. There are people out there 1 paycheck away from losing their homes and living in a shelter. These celebrities get paid way too much. Spread the wealth people.

This guy should have been a woman. He is such a Diva and totally not worth the 20 million he gets a year for this job. He has always been nothing more than someones sidekick. Kathy Lee was the reason that showed lasted long enough to bring Kelly on board.

I don't care what anyone says, I love Regis! He's given me numerous laughs over the years. There's really no need to hate on the poor ole fella. I wish I had a small fraction of his money because foreclosure is a beeeyatch!
