Seth MacFarlane made waves at the Critics’ Choice TV Awards with his acceptance speech for the Louis XIII Genius Award.

The multi-hyphenate took shots at A&E, which broadcast the awards show, “Duck Dynasty,” one of the channel’s top programs and even himself on Sunday.

Below are TheWrap’s picks for MacFarlane’s top five zingers.

1. “This is very exciting, standing here on A&E, with close to a billion people watching something else.”

2. “Let’s also not forget that I’m being declared a genius on the network that airs ‘Duck Dynasty,’ this is a show whose cast members believe that hurricanes are caused by gay marriage. I wish I were joking.”

3.  “I want to thank the people at Fox, who years ago took a chance on a quirky little animated show, about a bumbling dad and his family, which I saw, and then created ‘Family Guy.'”

4. “And I want to thank the broadcast critics for everything. You’ve given me all that great criticism over the years, and not this trophy, you guys are like a remorseful, abusive dad. ‘I’m sorry about all the cigarette burns but here’s five bucks ’cause it’s Easter.'”

5. “Because you guys are being so cool here, I’m going to give you an out. You can take this back after you’ve seen ‘Ted 2’ and Mark Wahlberg gets sperm in his eyes.”
