Louis C.K. continues his reign as the “King of Comedy”…
The 45-year-old half-Mexican American actor/comedian has been nominated for a Satellite Award by the International Press Academy for his starring role in FX’s comedy series Louie.
Louis C.K. – who picked up two awards at this year’s Primetime Emmys, including one for his behind-the-scenes work on Louie – has earned a nod in the Actor in a Series, Comedy or Musical category.
He’ll compete against House of Lies’ Don Cheadle, Community’s Joel McHale, The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons, Up All Night’s Will Arnett and The Big Bang Theory’s Johnny Galecki.
This is Louis C.K.’s second consecutive Satellite Awards nomination for his role on Louie.
The 17th annual Satellite Awards cover a total of 31 film and TV categories. Winners will be announced during a gala on December 16 at the Intercontinental Hotel in Century City, California.
