Charles Barkley Gets Doused in Champagne After Emmy Win [Video]

Rucuss staffMay 1, 2012

The Sports Emmys were last night in New York and plenty of sports journalists and analysts were in attendance.

TNT network were huge winners of the night racking up five Emmys. Former NBA player Charles Barkley won the award for best studio analyst for his NBA work on TNT. Charles wasn’t there; he was working Monday night.

Ernie Johnson accepted on Barkley’s behalf. Charles beat out Cris Collinsworth (HBO/NBC), Jay Bilas (ESPN), Jeff Hammond (FOX), Kirk Herbstreit (ESPN) and Skip Bayless (ESPN).

During ‘Inside the NBA’ Kenny Smith naturally took full advantage of Barkley’s win by dumping a bottle of champagne on Sir Charles’ head and expensive suit. And of course, Kenny left the set before Charles could get out of his seat when the broadcast was over.

Congratulations Charles! Watch the celebration below.

Check out his acceptance speech.
