Manchester, N.H., native Sarah Silverman had a big weekend. On Saturday, HBO aired her new comedy special, “Sarah Silverman: We Are Miracles.” On Sunday, she was at the American Music Awards to present the favorite album, soul/R&B honor to Justin Timberlake. She kissed him — and then wiped the lipstick off his cheek.
