On Monday evening, we’ll talk with Amy Schumer about her hit Comedy Central series “Inside Amy Schumer,” which concluded its second season on June 3. Join us for our live chat on June 9, at 6:00pm PT/9:00pm ET on Gold Derby’s home page.
This year, “Inside Amy,” which consists of comedy sketches, stand-up routines, and man-on-the-street interviews, has attracted guest stars including Zach Braff, Paul Giamatti, and Josh Charles. It has also been a hit with critics, earning Schumer a Critics’ Choice bid for Best Comedy Actress.
Schumer won’t be competing in that category at the Emmys, however. While her show vies for awards as a variety series, she will be entered for consideration for Best Comedy Supporting Actress; all variety performers have contended in comedy supporting races since the TV academy eliminated the Individual Variety Performance category in 2009. The rule change has since paid off with acting nominations for “Saturday Night Live” stars Amy Poehler, Kristen Wiig, and Bill Hader.
Will Schumer join their ranks? Make your Comedy Supporting Actress predictions below, then come back Monday night for our live chat.
