Chappelle's Show Turns 15: The 15 Greatest Sketches, Ranked

Chappelle's Show Turns 15: The 15 Greatest Sketches, Ranked
We really didn’t know how badly we needed Chappelle’s Show until it arrived, did we?

Back in 2003, SNL was fine, but not exactly groundbreaking, and sketch comedy was hard to find anywhere else on TV. So when comedian Dave Chappelle unveiled his Comedy Central sketch show, it felt like a bomb went off: No other show felt so current, or so vital. No other show was so willing to tackle hot-button issues like race, sex and politics. And no other show was so damn funny — not even close.

Now, 15 years later, Chappelle’s Show only seems more revolutionary and more iconic in retrospect.

Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Leading Role

It’s hard to imagine the guild passing on a legend like Gary Oldman, who disappears into the epic role of Winston Churchill in “Darkest Hour.” If an upset is lurking, look to newcomer Timothée Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”).

Outstanding Performance by a Female Actor in a Leading Role

Eeny, meeny, miny, moe, basically. The lead actress contest has been the most competitive all year. Margot Robbie (“I, Tonya”) has the showiest work.

Daniel Radcliffe Dishes On His Harry Potter Casting: “I Was Not The Most Gifted Actor”

Almost 17 years have passed since the launch and subsequent success of Philosopher’s Stone, and still, the Harry Potter IP continues to rake in the big bucks for Warner Bros. Pictures and series author, J.K. Rowling.

Both parties are now fully focused on their successor series, Fantastic Beasts, which is poised to continue through The Crimes of Grindelwald this November. But no matter what the future holds for Rowling’s rich world of witchcraft and wizardry, Daniel Radcliffe will forever be associated with the Boy Who Lived – for better or worse.

Because two decades ago, Radcliffe landed the role of a lifetime, even if he was initially taken aback by Warner’s decision. At the time, casting director Janet Hirshenson stressed that other Potter candidates were “not going to have the balls” for it, while Radcliffe, in typically self-deprecating fashion, believed he was “not the most gifted child actor.”

The #MeToo movement shows no sign of slowing down. Like the women who started the Time’s Up movement, public broadcaster PBS intends to make sure that all the progress made in shining a light on sexual harassment isn’t lost and is able to continue.

‘Everything Sucks!’ Trailer: Nostalgic Netflix Comedy Relives Your ’90s High School Experience
Last year, chenille sweaters were a holiday party staple and Jenny Slate made frizzy hair cool again in “Landline.” With Netflix’s latest comedy driving a Volvo station wagon back to 1996, it appears ’90s nostalgia is far from reaching a saturation point. The first trailer for “Everything Sucks!” promises plenty of VHS tapes, flannel, and CD-skipping jokes, plus a crew of scheming pre-teens who are just trying to deal. Looking like a cross between “Stranger Things” and “Big Mouth,” “Everything Sucks!” could be the latest Netflix comedy to go make waves.
