After landing the top comedy series prize at the Critics’ Choice TV Awards last month, NBC’s underrated comedy series Community finally is getting some Emmy recognition. While the best comedy series and acting categories remain out of reach, Community today landed a prestigious writing for a comedy series nomination. It wasn’t for creator Dan Harmon, who was recently replaced as showrunner on the series, but for co-executive producer Chris McKenna for writing the Remedial Chaos Theory episode of the show. The comedy series writing field was very competitive this year, and even awards juggernaut Modern Family, which won the category the last two years, couldn’t make the cut. Community‘s only previous Emmy nom came last year in the Individual Achievement in Animation category, which the series actually won.
