Comedy Central announced today their first annual Comedy Awards to be broadcast from the Hammersmith Ballroom in New York City on Saturday, March 26th.
Among the nominees are the usual suspects currently lauded on today's comedy television landscape. Tina Fey, Alec Baldwin, 30 Rock, The Office, Modern Family...blah blah blah. Not shabby, but nothing earth shattering. Where's Parks and Recreation? Community? How about Adult Swim's Delocated?
One refreshing turn is Childrens Hospital - nominated for Best Sketch/Alternative Comedy Series. If they're going to nominate Corddry's brilliant hospital drama spoof, I'm good.
Also, naughty Ricky Gervais, much maligned by the HFPA, but beloved by us, even got a nod.
