Ah, thanks for the info (pretty good episodes of Simpsons and Kim Possible, though I haven't seen the other two episodes).  IMO, Jurassic Bark is the best Futurama EVER, so like the rest of us, I'm hoping this one wins out.

When are the Emmys again?

You only want to watch an ep of Ginger once, after that it's boring.  Although, I think I know that ep, and it's good, i think.
I don't watch Disney and I know that Kim thing is on it.  No chance to beat Futurama.
Never saw this Simpsons, but Futurama could beat it.
Haha, funny Spongebob eps, but still, I don't think it can win.  It's the closest I think, because Spongebob also has good animation.  Still, Jurassic Bark is funny and sad.  I'll expect Jurassic Bark to win.  How does it work?  Do they like watch the eps and decide?  Well, good luck to all of those peeps mentioned!

Well i cant really judge, i havent seen any of those particular episodes except jurassic bark, but the other shows cant hold a candle to The Simpsons or Futurama, so it depends on how good that Simpsons episode is, but it would have to be pretty good to beat Jurassic Bark, And by all rights it could be, The Simpsons have been picking up thier act since around about ep 280 - 300. Cant wait to see the result  big grin

I don't see how any of those could beat Jurassic bark. The only one of those three i've seen is the Simpsons...and that episode really sucked. so there's no doubt in my mind That Futurama will win.

Eh, they've already cancelled the 2002 Emmy winning show. They have no shame.

But! It's funny that all the non-Groening shows are crappy kiddie shows. In your face, King of the Hill!

I hope Futurama wins, and I'd like to think it has a shot, but I don't know. Winning twice in a row would be kinda crazy. I don't know if the emmy voters have it in them.

Erg. That episode was annoying. Homer and Marge have *another* fight, he leaves the house, moves into the gay district, has a semi-homosexual experience, and Weird Al shows up for no reason to sing a not that good song (I really expected better from him). Solid meh. I like SBSP, but I don't know the ep names really, so I'd have to see that episode. It might be less of a threat as the episodes are much shorter.

My biggest fear is that some voters will not watch the screeners provided, and vote based on who's name they have heard more.  You know, the way a big percentage of people in this country (the U.S. since this IS an international forum) choose elected officials.

Simpsons obviously has the name recognition, though SpongeBob is probably not that far behind.  I would think Futurama's tiny ratings and zero promotion on FOX's part would really work against it in such a case.

BUT - if the Academy voters do thier duty and actually DO watch the screeners prior to voting (and since 90%+ of them are unemployed or work part time until that Big BreakŪ comes along, so it's not like they have anything better to do), then Jurassic Bark should be a slam dunk.

I agree, but I also worry that the voters will look at Futurama, know it will be cancelled and base their selection on that. They could decide that "hey, since Futurama is getting cancelled, why does it deserve an Emmy?" And eliminate Futurama from contention. Which would suck.

They've won a million times--but they are The Simpsons. I haven't seen any other show beat The Simpsons more than once. King of the Hill got one emmy, and then nothing.

Sounds like typical Simpsons. And I will point out that the song was written by the Simpsons writers, not Weird Al.

Well, Futurama won last year--so I doubt they're going on name recognition. But even if they were, with the recent success on Cartoon Network, it wouldn't be totally shocking for Futurama to win.

You are right FishyJoe - I forgot about Cartoon Network (and now WTBS)since I kind of take it for granted that Futurama is on virtually every day now.  Tell Cohen and company that their "Roswell" Emmy is getting a playmate.

Wow, if it were any other episode, it would be fair game.  But because it's "Jurassic Bark"  THE greatest episode of all television of all time, there's not a doubt in my mind it should win. SHOULD. Will it?  who knows...

I hope the voters vote for Futurama. I saw the last 5 minutes of that Simpsons episode and it sucked! "Jurassic Bark" made me cry and if the episode makes those voters cry, it will definetley win.

Futurama didn't get any other nominations, but aside from music- and sound-related categories, I don't think cartoons are ever nominated for writing or other minor technical awards.  I remember a few years ago there was a push to get The Simpsons nominated for Best Comedy Series (this was back when the show was actually good), but nothing happened.  Can't have those cartoons polluting our wonderful live-action programming!

And as I understand, the Voice Over category is non-competitive, they just give it to someone.  It's previously been won by The Simpsons, Family Guy, King of the Hill, and The PJs, so maybe it's Futurama's turn.  I'd like to see Katey Sagal get it for "The Sting."

Thanks, blahness. I think if the voters actually sit down and watch the episode, it will win. Arguments over whether or not the Simpsons is still good aside, this episode was amazingly touching - something which the other nominees cannot claim to be. Here's hoping... And as was mentioned on CGEF, here's hoping to another emmy NEXT year (The Sting or The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings, anyone?)

Woo hoo!  Another Emmy nomination!   big grin

Of all the nominees, Futurama is the most deserving and has the best shot, in my opinion.  I've seen that episode of "As Told By Ginger", and it's not great.  "Hello Stranger" is probably the best episode of the show and I think it won an Emmy.  I don't think I've seen that episode of "Kim Possible", but the show doesn't have wide appeal like the other nominees, so I doubt it'll win.  The "Simpsons" episode was really, really, really lame.  If it wins, the mustard seed of faith I have in the voting panel will have completely vanished.  As for "Spongebob"- honestly, how much of that show can you take?  Ten seconds is enough for me, which is why I don't think there's a snowball's chance in hell for this episode.  If the judges actually watch the nominees, I'm sure Futurama will come out on top.  It's a wonderful episode and worthy of recognition.   smile

I don't know why this particular Simpsons episode was nominated.  It's one of the worst of a bad crop.  I think it's obvious Futurama is the only deserving candidate, as Jurassic Bark is about the best thing I've ever seen on animated TV.  It's better that Roswell that Ends Well, which won in this category last year.  Here's hoping the academy doesn't make a criminally poor choice.  Fingers crossed.

It looks like a slam-dunk for Futurama.  Jurassic Bark is one of Futurama's finest episodes.  Of course, when it comes to awards, all bets are off.  My thoughts on the competition:

As Told By Ginger - not a bad example of the adolescent, coming of age, touchy-feely genre.  Not a personal favorite, since I'm not into the whole junior high angst thing (been there, done that, got the scars).

Simpsons - a serious contender, if only due to past success, but clearly past its prime.  This episode is nowhere near the series' best efforts. 

Kim Possible - I think this will provide the biggest challenge.  This new Disney series is quite good and has made some waves in the business.  It is a keystone of Disney's girl-oriented programming.

SpongeBob SquarePants - definitely different, this program has undeniable charm.  Part of me likes it, and part of me doesn't understand it at all.

Just more proof on how great Futurama is.  How it gets cancelled, and shows that are absolute crap(to say the best about them) continue to recieve funding, is totally beyond me.

I dont know the simpsons episode (to be honest I dont really watch the new eps that often), but judging from the synopsis, if it puts gays in a positive light than it might win on that, you know supporting the community.

I have never heard of "As told by ginger", and from what I have seen of spongebob years ago, that show has barely 2 brain cells to rub together.

Hmm, I think it will be close between futurama and the simpsons.

Whats the idea behind "As told by Ginger" whats it about?

You can say what you want about later Simpsons but that is one of the better recent eps.  JB should still win hands/paws down.
