Comedy Awards Noms: Lots of Love for 30 Rock, Snubs for Community, Parks and Rec

By

Comedy Central just announced the nominations for its first annual Comedy Awards, and they cover a pretty nice spread of comedic TV shows and movies. Like any award nominations, it’s not without its snubs, however; most notably, Community, Parks and Rec and Conan.

You can’t please everyone with this sorts of things, and this certainly encapsulates the current comedy scene better than any other recent awards show (I’m looking at you, Golden Globes). That being said, I probably would have put Community, Parks and Rec and Louie in that Comedy Series category ahead of everything else in there. And Kimmel getting nominated rather than Conan is a bit of a surprise. Not to mention The Simpsons getting nominated for best writing over Community, which alone is enough to make me question the legitimacy of these things.
