Chicago-area native Kathy Griffin is shameless about showing her Emmy from last year -- she totes it when she travels, she even offers fans to take pictures with it.

Now she's got another one.

The Creative Arts Primetime Emmys -- which Griffin refers to as the Schmemmys, given their early, off-primetime presentation -- were held Saturday night in Los Angeles, and Griffin won a second trophy for Outstanding Reality Program.

She made headlines last year when, in her acceptance speech, she mocked winners who thanked Jesus and instead joked, "Suck it, Jesus!" When she hit the podium Saturday, she said, "Well, well, well! Here we go again, f---ers. Here we go again!" She then acknowledged that big-time celebs were actually in the audience, and she added, "Hanks, Gandolfini -- what the f---! I'm not going to tell anyone to suck it. I would make love to this thing if I could."

Still no word yet as to whether Griffin's "D-List" will get a fifth season, but a second Emmy couldn't hurt.

In other pre-Emmys news: "I'm F---ing Matt Damon'' from ''Jimmy Kimmel Live'' won for outstanding original music and lyrics, rewarding the Sarah Silverman bit that became a viral hit online.

''Matt Damon, I'm going to be honest, had very little to do with this being popular,'' said Silverman. ''And the person for who this video was made, Jimmy Kimmel, who broke my heart, oops ... who... will always have a place in my heart.'' (Silverman and Kimmel split after the hit videos.)

Hey Kathy,
How about showing some REAL courage and insult a religion that will put a Fatwa on your ugly head? You're safe in this country as the followers of Christianity are too civilized to injure a mentally challenged egomaniac.

She is funny and has the guts to risk it all! Now she has 2 Emmys to show for it. She has told a lot of people to suck it!

Kathy Griffin deserves all of her success including her second emmy. And no one had less to do with it than Jesus. Kathy Griffin for President.

Kathy is so freaking awesome!!!! I was so psyched when I heard she won another Emmy!!!
