Ah, but can you honestly argue Carlie putting on a wig and saying in her normal voice, "Hi, I'm Megyn Kelly!" is more of an impression than Piotr doing three perfect, bang-on seconds of Ian McKellen? If Ian McKellen doesn't count, a good two thirds of the "impressions" that were listed shouldn't count either.

Dora is animated, but Michelle is playing Dora as a live action person, so it totally counts as an impression.
I get it. Just noting that it feels weird.

I agree that it feels a little wrong to include that as part of these categories, but my response to this is two fold. One, HBO First Look really does feel like a commercial on HBO and since it can be 15 minutes long it feels like a tv show. Second, as you said somewhere in here, there were only 9 episodes this season. You need a little inflation of things in order get a full field of choices.
Fair enough. Again, more a matter of pointing out the weirdness than a complaint. I don't mind getting to vote for that sketch twice.

If you feel there should be individual character nominations, I am open to splitting this section apart into people, not just individual sketches.
I think the way you have it is fine -- just add Safe Space to the list of options. And Jeff Goldblum to the commercial list.
