2015 was a big year for Schumer. The third season of Inside Amy Schumer became a weekly water-cooler subject, with skits like "Milk Milk Lemonade" and "12 Angry Men" – an episode-long parody of the film and play, with a feminist twist on Schumer's "fuckability." The latter episode was lauded by critics and received a nomination for outstanding directing for a variety series at the 2015 Emmy Awards. Additionally, the show received nominations for outstanding writing for a variety series and outstanding lead actress in a comedy series for Schumer, and would go on to win for the new Emmy category for outstanding variety sketch series.

Elsewhere, after the box-office and critical success of Trainwreck, Schumer rode the wave into her first HBO standup special, Amy Schumer: Live at the Apollo. Finally, Schumer signed a multimillion-dollar book deal with Simon and Schuster, to be released later this year.

Watch the new teaser for Season 4 of Inside Amy Schumer, which sees Schumer decked out in Game of Throne apparel to announce that "Schwinter is Coming."
