Not to be defeated, Jacobson retaliated with the best Emmy snub Tweet in history:
Pegging, of course, was the focus of one of the show’s best episodes. Jacobson finally scores a date with her crush, only to have things go wrong through a series of misunderstandings. Sounds like any other sitcom plot on TV, right? But in typical Broad City fashion, they put a unique, transgressive, and hilarious spin on it:
and part 2:
Broad City has always been fearlessly matter-of-fact with topics TV rarely touches — like woman-on-man anal sex, to pick a random example. The point at which Abbi’s date falls apart isn’t the somewhat unusual sex act itself, but her hipster date’s annoyance that she accidentally messed up his artisan dildo. A lesser show would have tittered at the deed itself. Not Broad City.
The Emmys frequently recognize Girls, which can’t broach a taboo topic without taking on an air of smug self-congratulation. Jacobson’s rebuttal makes her case implicitly: The Emmys missed a chance to reward a show that is both over-the-top and subversively subtle, comedy at its fucking finest.
