While accepting the best comedy award for "Bridesmaids" (he produced the film), Apatow had to be bleeped out three times during his speech.

He ended his acceptance speech with a dig at comedian Jerry Lewis.

"Jerry Lewis once said that he didn't think that women were funny. I'd like to say, with all respect, f--- you," he said.

"Bridesmaids," co-written by Kristin Wiig and Annie Mumolo, features a mostly-female cast that includes Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Rose Byrne and Ellie Kemper.

The film was also nominated in the acting ensemble category at Thursday's ceremony, and McCarthy was nominated for best supporting actress.

Tell us: Should Apatow have used his acceptance speech to slam Lewis?
