Katy Perry woke with an Emmy nomination for her Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show today. The pop star is nominated alongside Zach Galifianakis's "Between Two Ferns" episode featuring Brad Pitt, and other "Outstanding Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Programs." Katy delivered a pretty great performance herself, but tosses some credit over to Left Shark, and, really, no one deserves it more.
Um...Woke up to my first Emmy nomination for the Halftime show!!! V proud of everyone involved especially #leftshark pic.twitter.com/DhD4rRlEFO— KATY PERRY (@katyperry) July 16, 2015
