Comedy Central Emmy submissions: ‘Inside Amy Schumer,’ ‘Broad City,’ ‘Key and Peele’ & more category placements

In a Gold Derby exclusive, we have learned the category placements of the key Emmy Awards contenders for Comedy Central. Last year this cable network won both Best Variety Talk Series (“The Daily Show with Jon Stewart”) and Best Variety Sketch Series (“Inside Amy Schumer”). The network also picked up Variety Series nominations for sketch shows “Key & Peele” and “Drunk History” as well as the farewell season of talk show “The Colbert Report,” in addition to acting bids for Amy Schumer (Best Comedy Actress, “Inside Amy Schumer”), Keegan-Michael Key (Best Comedy Supporting Actor, “Key & Peele”) and Paul Giamatti (Best Comedy Guest Actor, “Inside Amy Schumer”).

Jon Stewart left “The Daily Show” last August, but his successor Trevor Noah‘s version is being entered for Best Variety Talk Series this year. Meanwhile, “Inside Amy,” “Drunk History” and the last season of “Key & Peele” are eligible to return to the Variety Sketch contest. And shows like “Broad City” and “Review” are aiming for their first notices in Comedy Series races.

Below, the list of Comedy Central submissions for its comedy and variety series offerings. (Please note: Performers not included on this list may well be submitted by their personal reps.)
