LA host Brad Garrett opened with a gag aimed at Woody Allen, but which may attract some controversy.

“There is a very good chance Woody Allen won’t be here tonight, so those of you guys at the kids’ table tonight, you have nothing to worry about,” Garrett said. “Hey we even put Oshkosh B’gosh in the gift bag to get him here!”
