Key & Peele, Conan and Parks and Recreation are just some of the shows up for an American Comedy Award this year, whose nominees were announced on Thursday. Spanning 19 different categories, the awards cover everything from feature films like Nebraska to viral videos like James Franco and Seth Rogen\’s “Bound 3.” The most interesting picks, however, were probably in the new “Alternative Comedy Series” category, which highlights cult hits like Archer and Kroll Show.

On hiatus since 2001, the 26-year-old award show is being revived this year by NBC after acquiring the American Comedy Awards last fall. Set to air this May, online voting is only open from now until March 18th, so you better hurry on over to the official website if you want to see “Taylor Swift (Goat Edition)” win a Lucy. You can check out a full list of nominees below, compiled by the good folks at Splitsider:
