Legendary entertainer (and diehard Los Angeles Clippers fan) Billy Crystal was honored last night with the Audiobook of the Year at the 2014 Audies Gala in New York City for his work “Still Foolin’ ‘Em: Where I’ve Been, Where I’m Going, and Where the Hell Are My Keys? (Macmillan Audio). Organized by the Audio Publishers Association (APA), the honor goes to the audiobook that “through quality, innovation, marketing, and sales, has had the most impact on the industry.”
The fellow audiobook nominees were The Things They Carried (narrated by Bryan Cranston) and The Testament of Mary (narrated by Meryl Streep).
“Wow! Three’s the charm! I am so proud to have been chosen as the Audiobook of the Year and to win the other two categories as well against such great audiobooks,” said Crystal, whose film credits include When Harry Met Sally, Mr. Saturday Night, and Analyze This). “I loved writing and performing this book and turning parts of it into a live comedy album like the ones that inspired me growing up. Beautifully recorded and produced by Scott Sherratt and Laura Wilson with music by Freddy Khaw. It’s great to finally get that Meryl Streep monkey off my back. Many thanks to Macmillan Audio for believing in creating a total listening experience. Oh by the way, Father’s Day is coming…”
