Comedy Central’s ‘Comedy Awards’ Nominations


Comedy Central just announced the nominations for their first ever Comedy Awards, which will air on the network April 10th. We know what you’re thinking: Just what the world needs, another awards show. But thanks to the inclusion of TV shows like It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Eastbound & Down and films like Cyrus and Tiny Furniture, it promises to be a much different (read: more interesting) crowd than we typically see at these kind of events. Plus, Stephen Colbert, Seth MacFarlane, Adam McKay, Conan O’Brien, Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Jon Stewart, and Lily Tomlin were all on the nominating committee — so that’s got to count for something. Click through to view the list of nominees, and let us know your picks to win in the comments.
