When you’re a show like Community — which has been denied Emmy love for three seasons straight (save for one well-deserved writing nod) — what else can you do but create your own ceremony?
As Gillian Jacobs tells TVLine, “We’re going to have special Community Emmys, and [Donald Glover and Danny Pudi] are going to win it all” for their respective performances in the upcoming Jim Rash-penned installment that finds the buds swapping bods, à la Freaky Friday.
“Donald and Danny’s performance in it is not just Emmy-nominated, it’s Emmy-winning,” Joel McHale deadpans. “They’ve already won it.” Unfortunately, as is to be expected when creating one’s own Emmy-esque event, “We have to make [the trophies] ourselves,” he laughs. “Out of paper-mache.”
Press PLAY below for more from the Community cast, including scoop on what’s ahead for a Changnesia-suffering “Kevin,” a Jeff-loving Dean and a sandwich-selling Shirley.
Community airs Thursdays at 8/7c on NBC.
