Comedy Central has become a perennial Emmy standout – last year, the network notched 26 nominations and eight wins for its irreverent work. Nickelodeon, Spike, Logo, MTV, TV Land and BET also earned nominations.
In addition to the recognition of outstanding work from wholly owned Viacom programming, our Paramount TV division earned 14 nominations, 11 for its collaborations with FOX, most notably the spectacular Grease Live special, which drew 10 nominations after totaling more than 12 million viewers during its February airing.
The full list of Viacom nominations is below, along with a look at a few of the properties up for the honors. Some of the clips contain graphic or adult language.
Viacom has grabbed five nominations across four of its brands for the 2016 People’s Choice Awards.
The popular competition, which is headed in to its 42nd year, is the only major U.S. awards show whose winners are decided entirely by the fans, making a win in any category especially meaningful to us.
