“Family Guy” Spoofs “Precious”
Family Guy’s taking on Precious — Sorta….
The envelope-pushing comedy is campaigning for a Primetime Emmy, in typical Family Guy fashion, series writers have selected a tongue-in-cheek image for their 2010 Emmy mailer. This year, Peter Griffin’s does his best Gabby Sidibe by parodying the promo poster from the 2009 Oscar-nominated flick, Precious.
Also included in the mailer are these taglines:
“Family Guy – written by 8 WASPS, 6 Jews, 2 Asian and 1 Gay.
We peaked 3 years ago, so by your logic we should get an Emmy now
You have to vote for us â€” we did a holocaust episode
Family Guy with Tina Fey… Not really, we just want an Emmy”
