The ceremony coincided with the 40th anniversary of Young Frankenstein. And in typical Mel Brooks fashion, his print is going to look a bit different than everyone else's.

Brooks decided to wear a prosthetic, giving him an eleven finger hand print.

The 88-year-old comedian tweeted a photo of his hand print Monday afternoon.

I desperately need to wash my hands.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I want to thank you all for being here and being part of the wonderful charade," Brooks told the crowd at the ceremony. "I really love it."

Brooks headed to a taping of Conan O'Brien's show after the ceremony, but not before using a comb to apparently make fun of Hitler.
