Last night, Jeremy Piven won the Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy.

He has now also earned The Gossip‘s award for Best Line of Insult Hurled Against Billy Bush.

During the red-carpet prelude to the Emmys, the Access Hollywood VJ corralled Piven questioned him about a slew of celebrity babies.

Because Piven had just flown in from Arizona, where he was shooting a movie with Jennifer Garner, Bush asked him about Garner’s and Ben Affleck’s baby, Violet.

From there, the kid questions flew. Seeing as the Entourage star lives in Malibu, Bush inquired about whether or not he had laid eyes on Brangelina‘s baby, Shiloh. Piven said he hadn’t, explaining that he had: “116 other things to do … I don’t go hunting for celebrity babies, thank you, Billy.”

Of course, this didn’t deter the undeterable Bush. He continued to press the issue, asking Piven if he’d seen Suri Cruise. The soon-to-be Emmy winner lost his patience on that one.

“You need another job. You have potential as a human being … This may not be right for you. Seriously – can you focus on other things?”

Well said, quasi Ari Gold. We’d encourage you to say the same thing to Lindsay Lohan … but she has no potential as a human being.
