Morning Debriefing 2/20/12

1) Not many surprises with comedy at the WGA Awards with: 
Midnight in Paris for Best Original Screenplay 
Modern Family for Best Comedy Series and Best Comedy Episode 
The Colbert Report for Best Comedy/Variety Series Including Talk Shows

Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception for Best Video Game? Hmmm….

2) Even in a short, out-of-context clip, Pixar still is able to promise something both funny and endearing in their new short “La Luna” to be release with their upcoming full length feature Brave.

3) Tonight on late night, Todd Glass is sure to cause some sort of hilarious ruckus on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC 12:35AM)

4) Mike Birbiglia on Letterman.

5) TJ Miller’s rapping makes more sense with a music video with a bunch of people that are out of place.

6) There are only 9 days left for the Creek and the Cave’s Kickstarter and they’re barely half-way funded. Give some bucks to some of the best comedy in NYC.

7) Win tickets to “Salute to Movie Night” this Sun. by giving (via e-mail to by 12PM 2/21) the best answer to this question: As Sandra Bullock has won both an Oscar for her performance in The Blind Side and a Razzie for her role in All About Steve in 2009, who else, in your opinion, has won an Academy Award in any year throughout Oscars history, and also deserved a Razzie for another film they were involved in that same year?

8) Thankfully, The Colbert Report announced that it’s resuming production…

9) According to @TrendsLA on Twitter, a comedian by the name of Patt O. Noswalt trended at the same time Patton Oswalt was live-tweeting Downton Abbey.

10) Today, I read that someone with cerebral palsy did stand-up with the aid of an iPad and my first thought was, “I couldn’t get away with using an iPad on stage. That’s BULLSHIT.” Yep, I’m a comedian.
