Rango” has won for Ani­mated Com­edy Film and “Archer” for Ani­mated Com­edy Series on Sat­ur­day night at the Com­edy Awards 2012, the sec­ond annual block­buster event ded­i­cated to cel­e­brat­ing all that is funny.

Los­ing to Rango were Cars 2, Kung Fu Panda 2, Puss In Boots and Rio.

Vying with Archer were Fam­ily Guy, The Life & Times of Tim, The Simp­sons and South Park.

James Bobin was nom­i­nated in the Com­edy Direc­tor (Film) cat­e­gory for helm­ing the partly ani­mated The Mup­pets, but lost to Paul Feig of the live-action Brides­maids.

All nom­i­nees were selected by the Com­edy Awards’ Board of Direc­tors, com­prised of such com­edy indus­try lumi­nar­ies as Carol Bur­nett, Conan O’Brien, Joan Rivers and Lily Tom­lin. An invitation-only body of com­edy writ­ers, pro­duc­ers, direc­tors, and other indus­try movers and shak­ers chose the winners.

The his­toric, one-night-only cel­e­bra­tion hon­ored the most tal­ented writ­ers, direc­tors, actors and stand-ups who pro­vided the laugh track to our lives this past year: the pio­neers who pushed bound­aries; the TV shows that we rushed home for; the movies that are etched into our col­lec­tive pop-culture mem­ory; the stand-up come­di­ans and the viral videos that make us laugh every day.

Sat­ur­day night’s Com­edy Awards were held at the Ham­mer­stein Ball­room in New York City. The show will pre­miere Sun­day, May 6 on Com­edy Central.
