An appreciative Sandler spoke during the festivities, telling those in attendance, quote, "This is a big deal. I feel honored and can't believe this has happened in my life." Joining Sandler at the ceremony was actor Henry Winkler, who starred alongside the comedian in the 1998 film "The Waterboy." Sandler's "Grown Ups" co-star Kevin James was also present.
