*Comedian Wanda Sykes got two Emmy nominations for her HBO stand up I’ma Be Me. Her HBO special is nominated for both Outstanding Variety, Music, Comedy Special and Outstanding Writing in a Variety Music or Comedy Special.

Sykes receives the good news after she got word in May that both her shows The Wanda Sykes Show and her sitcom The New Adventures of Old Christine would not be renewed for another season.  Hopefully these nominations will change that.

Much luck to the talented comedian. The Emmy Awards air live on Sunday August 29th at 8 pm EST on NBC.
