'This Is the End', 'Parks and Rec', and 'Key & Peele' Nominated for the 2014 American Comedy Awards

Nominations came out today for the American Comedy Awards, and This Is the End, Parks and Recreation, Key & Peele, and more all scored nominations. The American Comedy Awards ran from 1987 to 2001 before being discontinued, but NBC announced in October that the awards are being resurrected after 13 years away and that they'll be broadcasting them. Voting is open to the public, and you can cast your vote on the show's 19 categories, including categories for standups and web videos, by visiting the awards' official website or their Facebook page.

The American Comedy Awards' TV and movie nominations are pretty spot-on and more in tune with the comedy world than most awards shows, while they really dropped the ball with their web video nominations. They only picked one actual comedy sketch (from BriTANicK, which is a good call), but most of the rest of the videos are song parodies, including a 24-second video of a goat edited into a Taylor Swift song seemingly made by a teenager.
