Watch: Amy Schumer Literally Asks for Emmys in Comedy Central's Hilarious FYC Ad

Amy Schumer lives her life the way she wants, and that mindset extends to her Emmys campaign. In this just-released For Your Consideration spot, Schumer literally asks for Emmys while highlighting the hilarious aspects of her show in a very dramatic way.

The ad is well-timed. Voting began last night, and early voters are key for campaigns — especially in Hollywood, where everyone has already been bombarded with FYC ads for months. 

Schumer and Comedy Central are pushing the show for Best Variety Series, a highly competitive field sporting the likes of “The Colbert Report,” “The Daily Show,” “Saturday Night Live,” and “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” “Colbert” pulled off the win last year, but “The Daily Show” had a 10 year winning streak going before it was unseated by its former correspondent.

Take a look at the video below, and stay tuned for more Emmys coverage as the race heats up.
