Amy Schumer Is Getting Paid a Lot More Money Than Lena Dunham for Her First Book

Amy Schumer’s UH-MAZING book deal.

Schumer follows a long line of funny women whose memoirs have been bestsellers, including Tina Fey (“Bossypants”), Amy Poehler (“Yes Please”), Lena Dunham (“Not That Kind of Girl”) and Mindy Kaling (who was smart enough to write two, “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?” and, most recently, “Why Not Me?”). 2015 is really a Schumerpalooza sort of year.Before Sunday’s telecast, host Andy Samberg told THR that he had planned to shy away from social media reviews of his performance and instead “soak up the experience and maybe some tequila” after the show. She won the Emmy for her Comedy Central series, “Inside Amy Schumer.” She starred in the movie “Trainwreck.” She made friends with actress Jennifer Lawrence and now they’re writing a screenplay together. The actress also said that it was nice to see all the celebrities on stage and also added that she felt like blacking out, reported Entertainment Weekly.

A photobombing repeat offender, Amy Schumer isn’t afraid to steal the spotlight from the A-listers, whether it be a Lannister, Larry David, Paul Rudd and “Weird Al” Yankovic, or Kimye. After thanking her head writer, who “had a baby like, 10 seconds ago”, an emotional Amy then explained, “I am, uh, so proud and this show fights for what we believe in”. “Jennifer sent me a really sweet text”, Schumer told the reporter. The playful 34-year-old looked positively glowing as she chatted to E! host Ryan Seacrest ahead of the ceremony and even cheekily grabbed her boobs in full view of the camera. “Thanks to my doctors and my lovely wife, I’m here standing on my own two feet”. “We met this summer and just, like, really hit it off, and we started writing a script together and it was going well so we wrote a movie”. “The splits. I was hoping someone might grab it for me, but we were backstage for so long, by the time I went back to my seat, it was gone,” Nangle told THR inside Boulevard3 at the network’s post-Emmys bash, adding that the contents of her purse included her cellphone, a Governors Ball ticket, hotel key and lipstick. Still, said the New York-based Nangle: “This is one of the best nights of my life.” A rep for the Microsoft Theater tells THR that a call came in to security inquiring Sunday night about a missing purse but a subsequent search of a specific seating area didn’t turn up anything.

Nangle tweeted on Monday that she was trying to figure out a way to break it to fellow comedy writer Lauren Reeves that the purse she lent her was missing. “Guys how do I explain to @laurenreeves that the beauteous clutch purse she so kindly lent me went missing last night.” Even with the purse gone, she had something else inside that she’d like back: “Just wish the person who took my purse at @TheEmmys would have at least left me my good luck charm from my nephews,” she tweeted. Emmy weekend provided a reunion, and they made the most of their Sept. 20 wins (variety talk series, writing for a variety series, directing by Chuck O’Neil).

But hours before former head writer Elliott Kalan even delivered the acceptance speech, a preparty went down at West Hollywood’s Le Parc Suite Hotel, where the entire staff stayed. “It was just us and no one else,” said Kalan. “Having the whole staff here is such a wonderful feeling. He’s done so much and has earned whatever he wants to do next.” Transparent creator Jill Soloway — a winner for outstanding directing for a comedy series for her work on the Amazon show — approached Emmy festivities with a regimen ESPN commentators would applaud. “I’m being really healthy — I’m eating healthy food before I go to parties and then I’m not eating anything when I get there.

I’m also not drinking any alcohol,” she told THR. “I’m treating the week like an athletic event.” Amazon Studios chief Roy Price probably felt like a post-workout athlete on the rooftop of the Standard Downtown following the Emmys. He showed up to Amazon Prime’s bash in a Ralph Lauren white tuxedo jacket to celebrate the streaming service’s two Emmy wins. “It’s like 100 degrees,” he joked. “A white dinner jacket was designed for hot tropical conditions.” Also in attendance at the bash were Amazon’s Jeff Bezos, Joe Lewis, Michael Paull, Albert Cheng and Morgan Wandell along with Jeffrey Tambor, Judith Light, Melora Hardin, Dana Delaney and Ron Perlman. Transparent co-executive producer Andrea Sperling also made the rounds, telling THR she loved Soloway’s acceptance speech. “It was so smart and relevant and important — just like everything she does,” she said.

It was Tambor who gave Siebert a nice shout-out onstage during his acceptance speech. “I’ve represented him for 30 years and he’s always been brilliant.
