I barely made it through one episode of Girls and never had any desire to see another.

Modern Family is damn funny. Big Bang is not.
Why isn't The League nominated?
 
2012-08-10 11:04:04 AM
So should I give Veep another chance? I watched the first episode, and... eesh.

Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Why isn't The League nominated?



THIS!

"WHAT'S UP JERKS! I am day drunk. Get ready to see mah dick."

Also:

"Girls" was nominated? Is this a joke? That show blows, and I pray that real New Yorkers are nothing like the characters on that show.

Isn't "Funny Sitcom" an oxymoron?
 
2012-08-10 12:23:08 PM
Girls and veep are two of the worst shows ever, how are these nominated?
 
2012-08-10 12:25:24 PM
The Emmy comedy awards are almost as bad as the Grammies. It'll be a brighter day when they ditch the networks (except for Parks and Rec), and stop nominating HBO for everything, even when HBO is terrible at something.
 
2012-08-10 12:26:40 PM
I didn't even know that Community was nominated, cool-cool-cool...

Intentional or not, this is the best new comedy of the year. There are times I can't believe Christopher Guest or Steve Carrell don't have cameos.
 
2012-08-10 12:32:37 PM
Neither Community nor Parks and Rec was nominated so the headline has to be false.
 
2012-08-10 12:32:49 PM
Girls is the most unwatchable pile of steaming slop that HBO has ever produced. I am thinking that the creator and "star" of the show, who is about as attractive as my cats sphincter, has naked pictures of someone.

Only to tragically hip hipsters.

Assuming Big Bang Theory is there just because they needed to fill out the category and nobody would actually buy a "Two and a Half Men" nomination.
 
2012-08-10 12:33:42 PM
Happy Endings Noooooooooooooooooo

Community deserves an Emmy simply for the Ken Burns episode. End of story.

No love for Archer?

Strange, I don't see Louis nominated, nor did I know it won the past few years.

Would a How I Met Your Mother nom really bother them that much? 30 Rock and Modern Family, I understand, and Community would've been the best choice of all, but really? Big Bang Theory?

/Archer also would've been acceptable

FTFA: NBC's critical darling is riding high following what was widely considered to be one of its strongest seasons


wat.

This season certainly had its high moments, but it was easily the most inconsistent of the series.

I like Modern Family, but I don't really like that the Dunphy kids and Manny are getting more lines. They're easily the worst part of the show. I'm also not too keen on Gloria being pregnant next season.

We should have our own awards. The Fark Awards. As voted on by people who understand this list is bull.

To keep the non-farkers away we would have to open voting only to total fark members and/or farkers in good standing (x number of posts per month for so many months straight).

/this post partially inspired by the fact I know someone who helped found the Golden Raspberry Awards

Truth! She has has the saddest looking tits I have seen, and her tattoo looks like it was do by a toddler or Micheal J. Fox.

And speaking of tits....

If you want to see some that are awesome and natural, check out "Magic City" on Starz.

My feelings on each:

30 Rock - Consistently Hilarious

The Big Bang Theory - It has its moments, but I've become more & more tired of it. The UK's The IT Crowd is loads funnier as a sitcom about nerds.

Curb Your Enthusiasm - Funny, when I can see it, but I hardly ever get to see it.

Girls - Never heard of it.

Modern Family - Much funnier than I expected it to be. I don't watch it regularly, but when I see it, I enjoy it.

Veep - Never watched it.

Shows which I wish were nominated but weren't:

Louie Funny, but too edgy for mainstream

Workaholics Funny when it's on it's game, unbearably awful when it's off it's game.

K.B.O. Winston: Community would've been the best choice of all


nah. not this past season. Some great episodes through-out but their post-hiatus episodes weren't that great. The show feels like it's not nearly as smart as it thinks it is.
 
2012-08-10 01:22:30 PM
What, not love for:

Or would this be a different category?

schattenteufel: Workaholics Funny when it's on it's game, unbearably awful when it's off it's game.




I generally think this show's pretty consistent, though the past few episodes were kind of hit or miss. I think it's probably the only show that makes you both laugh with and laugh at douchebags.
 
2012-08-10 01:24:33 PM
If I were making the list for best comedy series:

Parks and Rec
Archer
Community
The League
30 Rock
How I Met Your Mother
Bored to Death

That it was nominated? Yeah, I bet the nomination committee is all "u mad bro".
 
2012-08-10 02:00:44 PM
I have 5 comedy series that I DVR, and Modern Family is the one I find the least funny/one that gets bumped for conflicts. Its usually good, but its not as funny or as smart as Parks and Rec and 30 Rock.

Bob's Burgers happens to be the funniest sitcom on TV.
 
2012-08-10 02:42:01 PM
Archer is much funnier than every show on that list. Veep? Girls? Really? I'm starting to think HBO is paying for nominations

I guess I missed the funny episode...Because the ones that I've seen sucked major ass...except for Kaley Coco's sweater puppets, those were/are cool.

/yeah, I know her name isn't coco...

How sad? Two suicide notes stuffed in a glitter bra sad, or coming home from school and finding out your old man ran over your cat sad?

Man, I am still holding out hope that Cartoon Network or FX picks it up. Haven't heard about it in a while though.

Yeah, I don't get much love because I think Christina Hendricks is fat and Felicia Day has a weird face.

I haven't heard anything either.

IMHO, the Atlantic City episode is the best one.

I assume the "hipster d-bags" was aimed at me....and if so, that is too funny...trust me, I am far, far, FAR from being even in the same zip code as a hipster...I'm old for one...my facial hair is more "dirt bag biker, than IT programmer/indie rock musician", I've never been to and have no desire to go to New York City or Austin....hell, I drink Bud Light..and not in an ironical way. I drink it because i like the taste...All that said, big bang theory is still annoyingly stupid.
 
2012-08-10 04:36:02 PM
(On FX, who has comedy on lockdown)
Always Sunny
Archer
Louie
Wilfred
The League
(Other Stations)
30 Rock
Modern Family
Parks and Rec
Community

The reason half the FX shows don't get nominated is because they are either A) Way too vulgar or B) Don't have a big enough fanbase because many people don't "get it"
 
2012-08-10 05:46:17 PM
My list:
Community
30 Rock
Happy Endings
Big Bang Theory
American Dad

Modern Family would be in the hyper-predictable slapstick throwback to TGIF on ABC category, along with Mike & Molly, Girls, and whatever deck TBS is pretending is "very funny".

And Happy Endings would win. Because it is Ah-mah-zing.

/It's summer, so we are in season.
