It is a good episode, and has a good chance because it stands well alone.  You don't have to have followed Futurama to be touched by it.  But it is an episode that causes strong emotions, and people split on it.  Still, I think even the people that didn't like will admit it is a very well animated and told story.

Still, two in a row is hard to pull off.  I'm hoping, but I'll put my money on The Sting next year.

Haven't the awards been given out by now? I though they were taking place on Friday. When will we know?

Oh and good luck, not that Futurama needs it. It's clearly the best of the nominated bunch. Frankly if The Simpsons wins it doesn't deserve it. It's not a bad episode, infact it's a pretty good one. But it's just not outstanding in any way, episodes of this quality can be churned out by The Simpsons in a snap.

Jurassic Bark on the other hand is a truely truely brilliant piece of Television. Infact it's a truely great piece of Science fiction, with more imagination, competence, depth, intelligence, and heart than all of the other nominations put together!

I think they will air on E! next friday (sept. 19), but we should know who wins by then. SO if they win, maybe we can see them get the award.

Actually, rewatching "Three Gays in a Condo", it wasn't as bad as I was ranting about before, but it still wasn't all that great.

According to the Emmy website, the Creative Arts Awards ceremony started 15 minutes ago. So we'll probably know soon who won.

It lost to the Simpsons?!  This must have been one of those thing where the judges really didn't look at the programs they received, just chose one on name recognition.  I can't believe that Futurama lost.  None of those other programs made me feel half the emotion that Jurassic Bark did, doggone it!

The Simpsons has been nominated in this category twelve times and has won eight times (including, yes, the other gay-themed episode from 1997).  I think that's a bit much, though I don't like The Simpsons.

Anyway, it's just an award; it doesn't really mean anything (unless Futurama had won, of course).

I'm not.
What a ripoff! When was the last time 'The Simpsons' was any good?

It's obvious it was just a name recognition thing. They just flipped a coin on 2 of the more famous shows, picked up their pay check and off to the pub.

I know i'm going to be flamed and beaten with pogo sticks but I did think Three Gays Of The Condo was pretty good. Futurama still should have won but 3 Gays Of The Condo wasn't a bad choice either.

Must kill judges, must kill fox, must kill bastard the wrote "three gays and a condo". *regains senses* the only good thing is koth wasn't nominated. I think fox actually paid the judges not to vote for Futurama.Someone will pay  mad. *gets out an atomic bomb and heads for the fox headquaters*

To quote Bart and Lisa from Season 3, "Brother, Can You Spare Two Dimes?"...

Bart: "What about the Emmys?"

I don't believe this! IT WAS SET UP I TELL YOU!!

I bet Fox bribed the Emmy people. Then they couldn't regret cancelling it because they KNEW IN ADVANCE it wasn't going to get the award, the SIMPSONS was! AAAAAAARRRRRGGGGHHHHHH!!!!

I could get angry, I could shout and rant, but what's the point!? I don't hate The Simpsons, I never will, I Love it. But the horribly average episode that won this year is not a patch over Jurassic Bark! Jurassic Bark was sooooooooooo much better than the other nominations, it should have been a certain winner!
Well, I guess I can't do anything about it, I suppose that as long as we all know it should have won, that's all that matters. It just makes me wonder what's going wrong with the world.

I really can't believe "Three Gays of the Condo" won. (In fact, I can't believe it was nominated - there are plenty of episodes even in Season 14 that were better). It was painful to watch. Of course, the PC vote, as [-mArc-] hinted at on CGEF, probably swung it.

Condolences to "Jurassic Bark", and better luck next year.  frown

Al Jean said on the commentaries for "Radio Bart" that when that episode lost the emmy to a claymation Easter special, they jumped up in the front row, shouting, "How could we lose to that thing!" I'm sure the Futurama staff were doing just that. ...except for those who are also on the Simpsons staff. Dammit, they should have nominated "Moe Baby Blues", then I wouldn't be so outraged! That was a good episode! "Three Gays" was not! And wait, do the episodes that ran in the summer count toward the 2004 Emmys?

Yes, I believe they do, Shadowstar  smile

This really sucks, big time. Futurama really deserved that emmy, I would rather watch a Futurama episode than a Simpsons one any day. Well, at least koth was not nominated, and at least they lost to the simpsons (which is because the judges are friggn idiots). I have no idea how you could not vote for JB! And a little respect for a show that got cancelled when it shouldn't have. I really think it was set up. Oh well, they did get some publicity out of JB as a nominee, eh? Better luck next year, hopefully The Sting  smile

"Jurassic Bark" was one of those rare TV shows that you can't believe is actually on television.  It is such a moving piece.  I think the Emmy voters are all animal haters.   smile

From reading this thread I still haven't seen this answered:

1)  How is the emmy judged, is it a select pannel, all animators, all people working on animation, or all members of the accademy?

I'm not one of those that think the Simpsons suck, although I will readiily admit that it is not what it once was.  But "Three Gays of the Condo" was not much of an episode.  This was teritory that the Simpsons had already covered, and  I don't recall anything that spectacular.  There were much better episodes of the Simpsons this year.

Still, there is another chance, and a number of excellent episodes to choose from for next year.  I will be amazed if any animated episode next year comes close to an episode like "Spanish Fry."  Now, if that can overcome the question of "Why am I voting for an episode of a show that has been cancelled for over a year, and that hasn't been in production for two years," we have a chance.  smile

It's voted on by certain members of the Academy, basically anyone in it who is involved in national television.

I loved Jurassic Bark to death and it definetely should have won instead.  Such a brilliant episode.

Still, I don't mind this outcome nearly as much as "Radio Bart" losing to the easter special.  Why?  Because in this case both programs (lets face it, the other nominated shows didn't have a chance) were very good.  Dare I say that anyone who watched "Three Gays of the Condo" and didn't like it should simply never EVER watch even one second of ANY episode of The Simpsons EVER again, because obviously they no longer understand their own arguments about why they think The Simpsons isn't at its prime anymore.  Not to say that I think its at its prime myself, but there's just almost nothing wrong with "Three Gays" at all.  The only travesty here is that "Jurassic Bark" didn't win instead, and again that's because "Bark" was simply better, not because "Three Gays" was bad at all.  Pit "Three Gays" against any episode of Family Guy(a show that, for the record, I did really like) or one of the weaker Futurama eps like "Less then Hero" and I would vote for "Three Gays" easily.

The Simpsons lost its touch a while ago in my opinion... around 8 seasons ago. While at first it did seem good, without Matt working on it any more it became stale and very much unamusing (to me). I don't really want to hear about world events from anything but the newspaper, and that's only if I pick it up. I prefer to be amused by jokes like the kinds in Futurama, crude but very funny, rather than watch the news in an animated, biased form such as the Simpsons... cartoons were invented for entertainment and storytelling, and Futurama's story is much deeper and cooler than any of the plothole-ridden Simpsons ones.

I may be getting something wrong here, because I haven't watched the Simpsons in quite a while, but I know that Futurama is much better for me than the Simpsons is, and I thought it deserved that Emmy more than a dying show that Matt G. is barely related to any more.

If I have offended you in any way by this, you can remember its ONLY AN OPINION, NOT NECESSARILY A FACT.

Personally I don't like episodes that drag out dogs to get audiences.  I'd even nominate this episode for most shamless use of dog loyalty ever.  So, personally I'd have taken that Emmy nod and given it to either "The Sting" "Why of fry" or the "Farnsworth Parabox."  All of which had stellar writing, great execution, and brilliant artwork.

So no, while I think that Futurama should have taken home an Emmy, I personally would not have handed it to Jurassic Bark.

Of course this may be just backlash because the episode made me cry.   cry

"The Sting" and "Parabox" were not eligible.  And they might have thought "The Why of Fry" was too caught up in Futurama continuity to be a good choice.

And there are several real-world examples of such "dog loyalty."
