Earlier this week, nominations for the 67th annual Emmy Awards were announced and, as expected, several Palisadians (both current and former) and Pacific Palisades-related shows made the shortlist of television’s best.
“Modern Family,” which films at Palisades Charter High School and is on its sixth season, and rookie show “Transparent,” set in Pacific Palisades, are in competition for Best Comedy Series.
“Transparent” star Jeffrey Tambor and “House of Lies” top-liner Don Cheadle are both up for the Lead Actor in a Comedy category while “Veep” lead Julia Louis-Dreyfus was nominated for Lead Actress in a Comedy Series.
Meanwhile, “The Simpsons,” created by former Palisadian Matt Groening, received its 23rd nomination for Outstanding Animated Program. Television’s longest-running sitcom, “The Simpsons,” currently in its 26th season, has garnered 31 Primetime Emmys since debuting in 1989.
The 2015 Emmy Awards is scheduled for broadcast on Fox on Sept. 20.
