  1. Here is to Community: This cast is nothing short of perfect – Best ensemble on television and yes, I’ve taken Modern Family into account.

  2. Here is to Community – not only the best show on television but also the one with the single most awesome ensemble cast. They should at least get a nomination in the best ensemble category.

  3. I’ve enjoyed being on the SAG theatrical nom com this year. This is my first time.

    After receiving just a few screeners early on, in the last two weeks, I’ve gotten close to 30 films via mail and fedex. I went to screenings when I could and enjoyed the Q&A sessions afterwards.

    So this week I’ve just been watching film after film. And each day, there’s a new dvd arrival or two in the mail or by delivery service. So by Dec 12, I plan to have watched everything and make informed nomination choices.
