2012 Emmy Awards: Louis C.K. Wins Outstanding Comedy Writing Emmy for ‘Louie’
Oh ‘Louie,’ you magnificent bastard. While it remains to be seen if Louis C.K. will take home an Emmy for his acting acerbically dark FX series, the stand-up comedian has officially won the Outstanding Writing in a Comedy Series Emmy. The episode submitted was that of “Pregnant,” the season 2 opener of ‘Louie’ which featured the character’s pregnant sister coming to visit, before some abdominal distress turned out to be nothing but gas.
The award was presented by ‘The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons and ‘New Girl’ star Zooey Deschanel, who both pretended to have swapped personalities and character traits for their bit. Louis was gracious as ever for the award, thanking Pamela Adlon and FX president John Landgraf, who grants the comedian an unprecedented amount of freedom in crafting the show. Plus, how adorable was it pointing out the award to his daughters?
We’re hoping ‘Louie’ wins big tonight, even if it means that ‘Community’ lost the only award it was nominated for. Bummer.
