The Lonely Island

Nominated in Comedy

About The Lonely Island

The Lonely Island is the comedy group out of Berkeley, California made up of Akiva Schaffer, Jorma Taccone, and Andy Samberg. Best known for their viral Digital Shorts like “Dick In A Box” and “I’m On A Boat” from Saturday Night Live, the trio released their first feature-length film, Popstar, in 2016, a comedy poking fun at the ridiculous life of famous popstars (here’s looking at you, Justin Bieber). Their Snapchat-ready press circuit was just as hilarious as the movie itself, with funny gags and dance parties from college campuses to red carpet events, soundtracked by A$AP Ferg and Future’s “New Level.” Catch their latest snaps and tweets if you can’t wait to see what they’ll drop next or to find out who else they think is “on a new level.”
