Will Ferrell Officially Funniest Man in Universe

MTV is declaring what we already know: the SNL-er turned movie star is a comedic genius.

Even though it's kind of like declaring that the Earth is round, MTV will be naming comedian Will Ferrell a "Comedic Genius" at the 2013 Movie Awards on April 14. He'll be the first-ever recipient of this award, which he is getting "for his incomparable contributions to the world of comedy, including his on-screen portrayals of some of pop culture’s greatest characters." Or, as MTV president Stephen Friedman puts it, “Will Ferrell epitomizes what it means to be a comedic genius, and it’s only fitting that he should be the inaugural recipient of this award.” You won't hear any argument from us, and as a matter of fact, we're going to use this award as an excuse to re-watch some of Mr. Ferrell's funniest moments of all time. (Hopefully these clips will keep you satisfied until Anchorman 2 hits theaters in December.)
