Comedy Central is jumping into the awards show fray with the first annual Comedy Awards. Nominees were selected by the Comedy Awards Board of Directors, which includes (among others): Stephen Colbert, Billy Crystal, Whoopi Goldberg, Seth MacFarlane, Conan O'Brien, Don Rickles, Joan Rivers, Chris Rock, Ray Romano, Sharon Sheinwold Jackson, Mitzi Shore, Jon Stewart, Lily Tomlin and Sandy Wernick.
The movie nominees are led by "Cyrus," "Easy A" and "Kick-Ass" with three nominations apiece. The winners are being selected by professionals from the comedy community-including producers, writers, performers, directors and stand-ups. But fans can also have their say at the official website, voting in all categories and actually nominating in two online-only categories.
Here's the full list of nominees:
