This week, Vulture’s second annual TV Awards will honor the best in television from the past year. (Take a look back at 2014’s winners.) Our TV staff ruminated on the shows that have aired since last June and whittled a long list of contenders down to 115 nominees and 23 winners, which will be unveiled in the days ahead. We also enlisted Mike Schur, Kenya Barris, Marti Noxon, and other influential creators to write about the shows, actors, and moments that left them speechless this year.
Since any awards show worth its hardware (confession: we present no hardware) has an opening act, we asked comedian Cameron Esposito to kick things off for us. See her monologue below, and then watch for our first round of awards tomorrow. We’ll see you in the comments.
