“I kind of expected both of those awards to go to us,” says “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” star Andre Braugher about the show’s Golden Globe wins in 2014 during our recent red carpet interview (watch below). “The Golden Globes highlights shows that are looking for an audience … so I was not surprised that Andy Samberg won and I was not surprised that the show got a nod.”
We interviewed Braugher and showrunners Michael Schur and Dan Goor at a special “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Emmy event held Friday night at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. The entire cast was there for a panel discussion following a screening of the final two episodes of Season 2. It was a fun night for fans and Emmy voters in attendance as they all got to take home “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” donuts as tasty souvenirs.
Talking humbly about the show’s Globe triumphs, Goor tells us, “Whenever you win, no matter how much you feel like you may or may not deserve something, it feels like a surprise. We were definitely surprised. I mean, I think if you watch the video of us, that is the most sincere look of surprise a table has ever expressed.”
Since Schur previously worked on “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation, will “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” bring on Steve Carell and Amy Poehler as guest stars? “There’s always a desire to get the funniest people in the world onto your show. So every time a guest [role] pops up, you think, who’s the funniest person in the world who will do this or who’s interested in this? [However,] in the case of Steve Carell, why does Steve Carell want to go hang out in the Valley?”
