    Do we think this means Mindy might be up for some Emmys?

    • S. says:

      I think that means they believe she’s got a decent chance at it or at least someone from her show does. It bodes well for The Mindy Project’s profile I feel. The panels and Q&As she’s been doing lately are partly because she’s enjoyable to interact with and partly because they know people are interested (there was a viewing of the finale that was an overflow crowd, and this was after it had aired on tv. They just wanted to see the cast). It’s not just Fox’s publicity machine. I think some of these people actually wanna hear from her about the show. Hopefully a decent amount are Emmy voters.

  5. Dude says:

    I guess we know Mindy and The Voice get nominated.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Meh. Looking back just five years, actors who announced noms are 5-for-9 in getting ones themselves.

  6. Tom Charles says:

    So they’re giving the Mark Twain prize for people aren’t all that funny now?

  7. Tran says:

    More turtle power for Nickelodeon.

  8. Christian says:

    Tori really needs to stop with the restalynn injections. Her face looks so lumpy in that photo.

  9. MrFantasticsThing says:

    Please add Luke Perry and Brian Austin Green as love interests for Jennie and Tori. And Shannen Doherty as the main villain. And Ian Ziering playing an animated shark that helps the gals in their mystery solving.

  10. Mel says:

    Sorry, I just don’t get the appeal of Mindy Kaling. Thought she was super annoying on The Office. Even worse on her own show.

  11. IC says:

    Great. I love Mindy. Carson… not so much.
