    Apple's "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" TV show was today nominated for an "Outstanding Short Form Variety Series" Emmy according to the list of Emmy nominations on the Emmy Awards website [PDF] (via The Hollywood Reporter).

    "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" was nominated alongside "Between the Scenes" from Comedy Central, "Creating Saturday Night Live" from NBC, "Gay of Thrones" from Funny or Die, "Honest Trailers" from ScreenJunkies on YouTube, and "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" from NBC.


    Introduced in August 2017, "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" is based on the Carpool Karaoke segment made popular by "The Late Late Show With James Corden." Apple's version of the show pairs up celebrities, musicians, and athletes, putting them together in a car to sing songs.

    The first season of the show featured celebrity parings that included celebrity pairings included Will Smith and James Corden; Miley, Noah, Billy Ray and the entire Cyrus family; Shakira and Trevor Noah; Game of Thrones stars Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams; Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith; John Legend, Alicia Keys and Taraji P. Henson; LeBron James and James Corden; and more.

    Apple renewed "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" for a second season in February and has since aired a few new episodes with the cast of the movie TAG and Evan Rachel Wood and James Marsden from "Westworld."

    "Carpool Karaoke: The Series" was originally introduced as a way to promote Apple Music and it was initially available in the Apple Music app to Apple Music subscribers, but Apple recently added it to the TV app on iOS devices and the Apple TV and made it free to watch.

    Winners of the 2018 Emmy Award winners will be announced on Monday, September 17.

    So I guess this means that someone actually watched it? That's surprising...

    I’ve watched every episode. And it’s a bad show. Twin Peaks got SCREWED if this is what the Emmy’s have come to

    The enclave nominates from inside... so it’s a circle jerk. Wow.

    The name of the show alone would make me not interested.

    This is akin to be nominated to "The Best Places to Work" award, and then (surprise!) most everyone gets anointed.
