Nominees for Comedy Series include Louie, Orange Is the New Black, Silicon Valley, Veep, and Amazon’s recent hit Transparent starring Jeffrey Tambor, while Inside Amy Schumer managed to break into the Comedy/Variety category for the second year in a row with SNL, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Real Time with Bill Maher, and Last Week Tonight. Returning Vimeo web series High Maintenance also got some love in the Short Form Media category, and the Animation category consists only of Simpsons and Bob’s Burgers episodes.
