Last night, the second annual American Country Awards were held, and for the second year straight, Comedy Central was completely shut out. I'm not going to lie, it hurts. The mood around here is pretty glum today. But there is a glimmer of hope, because the latest Writers Guild of America Awards nominees were just announced, and unlike the country and western music community, the WGA has not shunned us.
Not only did Futurama receive a nomination in the Animation category for The Silence of the Clamps, but Comedy Central totally dominated the Comedy/Variety category with three of the seven nominees: Jon Benjamin Has a Van, The Daily Show and The Colbert Report. Best of luck to all the nominees!
