As the awards eligibility window closes and Academy members are nearing the time to vote for Emmy nominations, FX thought of a creative For Your Consideration event that is completely in keeping with the “Baskets” ethos. The network took over the Arby’s off of Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood one sunny day in May to serve up roast beef, curly fries, and healthy helping of self-referential humor to Academy members hungry for a unique awards experience.
Stars Zach Galifianakis, Louie Anderson, Martha Kelly, and many more stepped behind the counter and into the drive-thru window to expedite orders. The fast food joint was also bedecked in “Baskets” posters, screens played episodes of the show inside, and more Easter Eggs and cameos on location made this a heartwarming “Baskets” family event.
Here, co-creator and star Galifiankis works the drive-thru window.
