Best: Vince Vaughn's Fish-Out-of-Water Cameo

Every time cameras cut to Vince Vaughn in the audience, the actor and honorary bro had a look of total, unmitigated "what am I doing here?" confusion on his face. So why was Vaughn in the house last night? To present an award to Kenny Chesney, of course. And not just any award, but the ACCA's lifetime-achievement-y Groundbreaker award. "Few artists have single-handedly elevated country music to new heights," Vaughn said in a rudimentary speech. "They are the groundbreakers. Tour after tour, album after album, great song after great song, Kenny Chesney continues to thrill country fans and break ground as only he can," he continued, in what felt like a deleted scene from a Nashville-set Wedding Crashers sequel.
