Nothing makes me more fucking happy than:

-seeing Parks and Recreation go head-to-head with 4 dramas for Critic’s Choice Program of the Year.
seeing Amy go head to head with five other men for Individual Achievement in comedy.
-seeing The Office and 30 Rock defaults replaced by Community and Parks and Rec.
-that fucking Glee is nowhere to be found. 

Also, Nick Offerman’s hosting the ceremony.  AND IT’S NOT FUCKING TELEVISED.  Ergh.
