20 Mind-Blowing Facts About It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia
20. Sunny Wasn't Nominated For An Emmy Until 2013 (And Even Then It Was In A Minor Category)
It might be hard to believe given the consistently high quality of the show but It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia wasn't nominated for an Emmy award until 2013. It took the people at the Emmy's eight whole years to recognise Sunny. What award were they up for you ask? Well, Sunny could have justifiably been nominated for Outstanding Comedy Series, Outstanding Directing For A Comedy Series, Outstanding Writing For A Comedy Series as well as a host of acting categories. Sunny was nominated for Outstanding Stunt Coordination for a Comedy Series or a Variety Program in 2013 and again in 2014. It didn't win. The Sunny team slyly poked fun at the Emmy's with the series nine episode The Gang Tries Desperately To Win An Award, referencing the lack of awards for themselves and The Wire.
