Amy Schumer made 2015 her bitch. She scored her very first Emmy, made her SNL hosting debut, wrote and starred in a little movie called Trainwreck-all while schooling us on what modern romance really looks like when you wake up to it hungover in the morning. She dominated pop culture, taking issues like feminism and body image and putting a comedic, real-as-hell spin on them, and also seriously took a stance on tightening gun laws after a gunman invaded a screening of her movie over the summer. In other words, she did all the right things to get us talking, with a bottle of wine in hand at all times.
This is why we’re raising our glasses to Amy at VH1 Big In 15 With Entertainment Weekly, to roast and toast the powerhouse for all she’s accomplished this year. In preparation for the big event, Monday, December 7, 2015 at 9pm ET/PT on VH1, we’re here to remind you of all the Amy epic-ness that happened this year. Not that you needed reminding. Check them out and sound off on your favorite moment in the poll and comments below, trainwrecks. It’s time.
