  • Hi, Ellen.

  • Hey, Adam.

  • It's great to see you.

  • Nice to meet you all.

  • Hi, everybody.

  • [CHEERING]

  • It's good to see you.

  • Great to see you.

  • And congratulations on-- I don't want to talk about the movie,

  • yet.

  • We'll talk about it later.

  • But it's fantastic.

  • And such a different role for you.

  • I'm so glad you did this.

  • Thanks for watching it, Ellen.

  • Thank you.

  • Oh, yeah, well, of course.

  • And it's really good.

  • I mean, I wouldn't have watched it if it wasn't.

  • I would have tried to watch it and then I wouldn't have.

  • But I did watch it.

  • It's great.

  • And you've already received a ton

  • of really prestigious awards.

  • So congratulations.

  • Thank you.

  • And then you're up against another Adam.

  • You're up against Adam Driver.

  • Yeah, he's great.

  • Which-- he is great.

  • Yes.

  • But here's the thing.

  • Your name is Adam, also.

  • Yes.

  • That's got to be really nerve-wracking

  • when you're waiting to hear who's winning and someone says,

  • Adam.

  • And then you're thinking you're getting up and it's Driver.

  • Yeah, they hit you.

  • They hit you.

  • That happened to me.

  • There's a thing called the Gotham Awards.

  • And we were both nominated.

  • And, by the way, Adam Driver, I love him.

  • And he's great in his--

  • Marriage Story is a great movie.

  • You guys should--

  • Yeah, it's great.

  • It's amazing.

  • But anyways, I did hear and the winner is Adam.

  • And I swear to God, I didn't move.

  • I knew.

  • I was like, don't fall for it.

  • Yeah.

  • Don't fall for it.

  • Then I heard Driver.

  • I go, that it baby.

  • Yeah.

  • That it baby.

  • I stayed still.

  • But then you did win some other ones.

  • Yes.

  • But I had that same thing when I was doing my sitcom

  • and Helen Hunt was doing Mad About You.

  • And Helen sounds like Ellen.

  • And I would hear-- every year I was nominated for an Emmy

  • again, I would hear and the winner is Helen Hunt.

  • And it was like, I thought maybe they were just

  • going to say Helen DeGeneres.

  • They didn't.

  • I saw the 60 Minutes on you.

  • It was really great.

  • Great profile.

  • Shocking.

  • Can't believe that happened.

  • Well, to be on 60 Minutes?

  • Yes, it was very--

  • I grew up watching 60 Minutes.

  • It's such a big deal in my house to watch.

  • I would watch it.

  • I thought it was good for my brain.

  • I still do.

  • My parents would make me watch it.

  • 60 Minutes is on.

  • And there I was on it.

  • And I didn't see it.

  • I didn't see it because I don't like watching myself, you know?

  • But my wife told me it was good.

  • It was very good.

  • And your mother must have been thrilled

  • because she's a big part of it.

  • You're in her kitchen most of the time.

  • Yeah.

  • They went back to my hometown, 60 Minutes,

  • and they came to the house I grew up in.

  • And I called my mother and I said, they want to come--

  • I was really trying to get my mother out of it.

  • I was like, do you really got to go to my house?

  • They said, it would be nice to see where you grew up, Adam.

  • And I said, oh, man, and my mother, I

  • know she's going to be.

  • And I called my mother up.

  • I said, ma, 60 Minutes wants to-- oh,

  • I've got to start cleaning now.

  • And she was psychotic about it.

  • But she was great.

  • She was very nice.

  • And they were nice to my mama.

  • Oh, well, I mean, the fact that that's

  • your bedroom right there.

  • Yes, yes.

  • And it's exactly-- what are all those trophies for?

  • Basketball?

  • Can you believe those are my trophies?

  • Yeah.

  • For basketball?

  • A bunch of basketball.

  • In the middle there in the cases is punt,

  • pass, and kick trophies.

  • That's football.

  • And then on top baseball and basketball and one ping pong.

  • There's a ping pong one.

  • At the Jewish Community Center I won a ping pong tournament.

  • I would have played you ping pong earlier.

  • I didn't know you played.

  • I'm not that good anymore.

  • But, if you'd like to place a wager.

  • Oh, wow.

  • All right.

  • But that's your--

  • That's my--

  • That's your bedroom.

  • That's where my brother slept.

  • And that's me.

  • And I used to-- see, my brother had the TV on his side.

  • So I used to sleep in my bed and I

  • hear he'd be watching Benny Hill at night.

  • And I'd be like, hey, and I'd sneak over there

  • and watch the TV with him.

  • It's not the greatest angle to watch TV.

  • It's--

  • I think my mother turned it because it

  • used to be facing to him, my brother.

  • And I was on mine going, how come I don't get that?

  • But I got the fan.

  • I got the fan.

  • I have to say, your wife Jackie is in the audience.

  • Yes.

  • Hi.

  • Hi!

  • My wife.

  • Where's my wife?

  • Hi.

  • Right there.

  • Hi, Jackie!

  • I love ya.

  • Yeah.

  • That's very nice that she's here.

  • She doesn't-- we never do this.

  • But she loves you so much.

  • I love you.

  • Oh.

  • She loves you so much.

  • And I said I was doing Ellen and Jackie said, let me come.

  • And so I said, yeah, yeah.

  • You have to come.

  • And then she just--

  • we talk about you a lot.

  • And Jackie loves you and looks at your Instagram all the time.

  • Right, Jackie?

  • I love all the animals, all the babies.

  • I love you.

  • Aw, thanks.

  • Just like everybody else here, I love you.

  • Our first kiss, our first handhold.

  • That kind of thing.

  • That's sweet.

  • That's really sweet.

  • And you have two daughters, 11 and 13, right?

  • Yes, yes.

  • And they're huge Taylor Swift fans.

  • Yes, yes.

  • And they did-- they sang a Taylor Swift song.

  • And they're good.

  • They're very good.

  • They're good singers.

  • And we were doing a benefit for EB.

  • A good friend of ours son, Brandon, is the nicest kid

  • and he battles with EB.

  • And they do this great benefit in Malibu every year.

  • And I got to sing at it.

  • And then I said, hey, why don't you play--

  • sing Lover.

  • And they got on stage and sang.

  • Wow.

  • Well, of course they sing because you're a singer.

  • Do you sing, Jackie?

  • I do not.

  • You do not sing.

  • She can dance though, Jackie.

  • Yeah?

  • Jackie can dance, oh, yeah.

  • We'll be watching that during the commercial.

  • But you sing and you--

  • The Hanukkah Song, I think that's like 25 years old

  • and they still play that song.

  • I know.

  • Thank you.

  • [APPLAUSE]

  • I don't know.

  • I just heard that also, 25 years old.

  • That's a long time for one song.

  • If there are any other Jewish people out there

  • who want to write a new one, that'd be great.

  • I'd love to share the Hanukkah spirit with you.

  • Well, you could write a new one.

  • You could update it if you wanted to.

  • I could.

  • I could.

  • I just, I'm running out of juice.

  • Yeah.
