Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele of 'Key & Peele'
Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele, "Key & Peele"
Nomination Status: They're two of the funniest men on TV. That'll have to be honor enough.
In Their Favor: Separating Keegan Michael Key and Jordan Peele and only honoring one would be like honoring the peanut butter in a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup and pretending the chocolate wasn't an equal partner. I refuse to do it. As the stars and creators of Comedy Central's frequently brilliant "Key & Peele," the two comics played dozens of different characters and played them all flawlessly, crafting probably the sharpest commentary on race in America to hit the small screen since "Chappelle's Show."
Working Against Them: Together or apart, Key and Peele aren't earning Emmy nominations for acting. It might be interesting to see if the show can crack any of the Variety, Music or Comedy Program fields. Interesting, but ultimately disappointing, I suspect.
