The 2012 Comedy Award Nominations: Good Shows We Like Actually Recognized

By 03.07.12

The Comedy Awards are a thing, and this year, they’re handing out their second annual awards in late April on Comedy Central. If you’re not familiar, the Comedy Awards are chosen by a Board of Directors that assembles solely for the purpose of nominating and awarding Comedy Awards. There are, however, quite a few people of extraordinary taste among the Board of Directors, so it’s not empty recognition by a bunch of old white men. That board includes: Adam McKay, Carol Burnett, Chris Rock, Conan O’Brien, Jay Roach, Joan Rivers, Jon Stewart, Lily Tomlin, Ray Romano, Stephen Colbert, and Steve Levine. Some of these people actually know what they’re talking about, which is why the likes of Donald Glover, “Childrens Hospital,” “Louie,” and “Happy Endings” got nominated. Some (one) of them created “Modern Family,” which is why the nominations for “Modern Family” are over-represented (but poor Conan; on the board, but still can’t get his show nominated). Still, not a bad slate of nominations. Not bad at all:
