  1. Some interesting nominees, glad to see Gavin Crawford as a continued nominee for best performance, Male. Mostly, glad to see fresh star Nathan Fielder – uniquely hillarious.

  2. Impressed with choice of Nathan Fielder as best male performer, recognizing his unique style and the buzz he’s created on that show.
