The nominations are not over for Bo Burnham’s latest work. Television nominations for the 27th Annual Critics Choice Awards were announced today, including a nomination for Burnham’s Netflix comedy special Inside. Inside received a nomination for best comedy special.

Burnham’s Inside will be up against Good Timing with Jo Firestone (Peacock), James Acaster: Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999 (Vimeo), Joyelle Nicole Johnson: Love Joy (Peacock), Nate Bargatze: The Greatest Average American (Netflix), and Trixie Mattel: One Night Only (YouTube).

After announcing an end to performing comedy in 2016, Burnham made a triumphant and surprising return with Inside. Released on May 30 on Netflix, the special quickly won the hearts and minds of audiences. Surpassing the realm of comedy and choosing to explore the many emotions that come along with quarantine, Inside was written, filmed, directed, and edited in its entirety by Burnham. Through song, self-deprecating meta-footage, and surreal sound and camerawork it becomes clear to audiences that Inside is not only about being physically stuck inside but also mentally stuck inside one’s own head.

Look back at all of our Inside coverage and be sure to check out Inside on Netflix (if you haven’t already)! The awards ceremony will air live on The CW and TBS Sunday, January 9 from the Fairmont Century Plaza Hotel.
