When Peele stepped onto the Oscars stage to accept the award for Best Original Screenplay, the internet rejoiced.
Find yourself a friend who loves you this much. Jordan Peele had a historic moment last night when he won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay for "Get Out."
Keegan-Michael Key dropped by "The Late Show With Stephen Colbert," where he reprised his famous role as President Barack Obama's anger translator, Luther.
On Tuesday’s episode of The Muppets the gang was visited by the network and informed that their show needed some seriously rebranding. Miss Piggy did not take a liking to being called “old” and “irrelevant” so in natural Miss Piggy fashion she reacted by braiding all her hair and twerking for the other muppets in the boardroom.
At once lighter, more new-media-savvy, yet mindful of the old Muppet Show traditions, it marks a definite improvement in the revitalization of these beloved characters. The first of the re-booted-season episodes finds the Up Late with Miss Piggy crew facing a new enemy—a network-approved advisor brought in to revamp the show and make it more “relevant.” He’s a slick smuggie named Pizza—that’s pronounced (PA-chay)—and played by non-Muppet human Utkarsh Ambudkar (The Mindy Project). The character is there to unite the Muppets, who spent too much of the earlier part of the season squabbling among themselves, and also to comment on what many critics and viewers thought was the new Muppets’ biggest flaw: its frantic attempt to make the beloved characters hipper for a 2015-16 audience.
Key & Peele concluded a five-season run on Wednesday night by pulling over to the side of the road on that long stretch of desert highway they’ve traveled all season, and pulling a u-turn, heading back to… what? As much as we might wish Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele had continued their journey, they must feel great going out on top creatively. It was a terrific final season, and the closing hour, back-to-back episodes, served as a summation of the series. There was a fine Megan-and-Andre sketch — a break-up scene, in fact.
'Key and Peele' returns to Comedy Central on Wednesday night with an exceedingly strong half-hour that once again demonstrates the range of not only the duo’s performance skills, but their ideas as well.
