    17 Times The Cast Of "It's Always Sunny" Threw Shade At The Awards Committee

    “It still feels like some sort of high school party that we’re perpetually not invited to.”

    1. It’s no secret that the cast of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia are convinced the awards board has it in for them.

    2. They obviously aren't just in it for the awards.

    3. But after an entire decade, some recognition would be great.

    4. "But their Wikipedia page says they have been nominated for an Emmy!" you might be saying. Yeah, their stunt guy has been nominated 3 times.

    5. They literally wrote an entire episode about how little they obviously care.

    6. They spend the episode trying to be like "other bars" in an attempt to gain some recognition.

    But needless to say, they return to yelling at each other almost immediately.

    7. The episode is very meta and completely on the nose.

    8. The subtext is almost impossible to miss.

    9. And they practically outright talk about their audience and the awards committee.

    10. So, the gang FINALLY won a People's Choice Award this year.

    I guess we won a @peopleschoice award tonight. No one told us and we weren't invited. What a strange and wonderful decade this has been.

    11. They weren't informed that this was a thing that was happening.

    CBS

    Charlie Day actually found out the next day when one of his cast mates, who found out online, texted him "Hey, did you know we won an award?"

    12. And they weren't even invited to the award ceremony.

    CBS

    You must have to be a really disliked group of people to not be welcome at an award show for the people.

    13. Obviously they don't have much experience with these things, and had no idea what they were supposed to do.

    Update: haven't heard anything from anyone associated with the @peopleschoice awards yet. Maybe they just mail it? Maybe it's all a dream...

    14. Even Golden Globe and Emmy award winning actor, Danny DeVito, doesn't get special treatment for being on the show.

    NBC

    15. The network, FXX, didn't know they won the award either.

    CBS

    The gang even made a dig at their new network in The Gang Tries Desperately To Win An Award, after moving from FX to FXX, with the line "Maybe it's our location."

    16. But they eventually got mailed their award! With no word from the committee whatsoever.

    17. Still, they continue to bless us with more episodes of Sunny and there's always next year, right?
