  • The Dunder-Mifflin version of the Oscars is here! With awards like "Smelliest bowl movement," "Tight ass," and "Bushiest beaver," how can you resist?

    Michael is incredibly excited because he is set to emcee the Dundies, the Dunder-Mifflin awards night. This means that for one night he gets to be center of attention and inflict everyone to his comedy and improv routines, which feature a rendition of OPP ("You down with the Dundies?") at the local Chilis. Jim again shows his kindness when he expertly convinces Michael not to give Pam her annual award of "Longest Engagement." Instead of appealing to Michael's sense of mercy, he appeals to his comedic sensibilities, letting him know that the joke is old. The Dundies preparations take a turn for the worse when Jan refuses to approve the expenses for the party and Michael sagely notes, "there's a reason why comedy clubs have a two drink minimum."

    When Roy wants to ditch the Dundies early, an upset Pam starts drinking everyone's drinks and shows a different side of her that is loud but sweet and shows that she can cut loose. Jim's expressions in these scenes are amazing, running the gamut from pleasantly surprised to mildly concerned to hopeful that maybe Roy has finally lost Pam for good. Great work by John Krasinski.
