Ricky Gervais knew he'd made it big when screen star Jude Law waved at him at last year's (04) Emmy Awards.

The British funnyman, who was awarded two Golden Globes for his hit TV series The Office, admits the Alfie hunk's friendly gesture was his favourite moment of the star-studded night.

He recalls of the Emmy ceremony, "Just as (JENNIFER) ANISTON announced our second win, in fact just as she opened the envelope, I suddenly thought, 'F**k, they're going to give us two!'

"So I wasn't shocked when she said The Office. Then I remember JUDE LAW waving to me and I gave him a pathetic little wave back, like I knew him."
