With her co-star Abbi Jacobson, the low-budget Broad City web series went from FX to becoming part of the raunchier girl movement infiltrating the brotastic overkill of anything within Comedy Central’s grasp.
At the ende of May the 2014 Critics’ Choice Television Award nominations were officially announced, and overall, there were few surprises: Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, True Detective, and The Good Wife were all appropriately doted upon, etc. Still, the list did include some promising young hopefuls, the most notable — and fist-pump-inducing — being two nominations for the Internet’s favorite breakout comedy, Broad City: Best Comedy Series and Best Actress in a Comedy Series for its co-creator / co-star Ilana Glazer.
Glazer is also catapulted her Upright Citizens Brigade success into her YouTube series, Chronic Gamer Girl, and the intelligent movie How to Follow Strangers. The independent feature won top prize at the 2013 Lower East Side Film Festival.
