I, too would suggest "The Sting", but it falls short of "The Devil's Hands" only because it is more (but not entirely) self-contained.

According to the audio-commentaries, "A Bicyclops Built for Two" won an emmy for color? Can anyone confirm/explain this for me? I'd like to get Futurama's emmy history straight:

SEASON ONE: A Big Ball of Garbage nominated
SEASON TWO: A Bicyclops Built for Two wins (?)
SEASON THREE: Nada
SEASON "FOUR": Roswell That Ends Well wins
SEASON "FIVE": Jurassic Bark nominated

In season three it was nominated for "Amazon Women in the Mood".  Beaten by The Simpsons' "HOMR".  Futurama definetely should've won in that case, as The Simpsons ep was decent enough but only "oustanding" if you consider that most of that season (12)was garbage anyway. 

For the next nom, assuming there is one, I'm kinda back and forth.  But I think The Sting might be the best choice.  Its better standalone then Devil's Hands, and plus its just a little more creative, and the animation itself is so outstanding.

Though, I wouldn't mind "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on Television" to have a shot at it too.

DHAIPT & BSNBAOTV I am yet to see, but I think The Sting is worthy of an emmy nomination.

I thought HOMR was as good as old Simpsons episodes.

Why the hell wasn't 'Trilogy of Error' nominated for Simpsons season 12? For me, that was the only new simpsons ep to come close to the classics, although HOMR was OK.

I pick Devil's Hands. I loved the Sting, but I think TDHAIP would seem more impressive to people who aren't fans of the show.

HOMR wasn't that bad, but it was too contradictorary with things that had happened in other episodes. Trilogy Of Error, was a refreshing breath of fresh air in Season 12 of The Simpsons, however, when you think about it - the plot was incredibly stupid. It only seemed to be excusable because of the different format the episode was done in.

HOMR was an awesome episode in its own right And as much as it pains me to say it was just as good or even better than "amazon women in the mood"..

Meh, HOMR just wasn't that good.  It was better then select old episodes like "Homer Goes To College", but had little to no depth at all.  The so called "satire" was pretty weak, and the "emotion" fell incredibly flat and was more disturbing then anything.  The jokes were generally pretty funny, but that's about the only thing seperating it from bombs like "Tennace the Menace".  "Amazon Women in the Mood" didn't have much depth either granted, but was much more creative and dynamic with its humor.

I mentioned in the other thread that Futurama is actually eligible for several Emmys, at least five.  No, it probably won't even be nominated in any of these categories (except maybe Animation), but here they are:

Animation: We know about this one.

Comedy Series: At least three episodes must be shown during the eligibility period, but eight episodes can be sent in for consideration, so maybe that means episodes from other seasons could be used.  So what eight episodes would you send in?

Music: For one episode.  Most people would probably think of "Devil's Hands" for this one, but I thought "The Sting" had incredible music.  Of course, Futurama usually has good music.

Song: Well, only the singing in "Devil's Hands" could be nominated, since there were no other original songs in the last group of episodes (unless you count the Robonia Anthem).  It wasn't your standard song, but I think it would still be eligible.

Writing: For one episode.  I'd go for "The Sting" here.

I think it might be eligible for nominations in a couple more categories, though as I said, it probably won't get any because cartoons usually don't get nominated for "real" awards.  But as I said before, it would be really embarrassing for Fox if it did.  And it's fun to dream....

Comedy Series: Ássuming at least 3 should be from the eligibility period, but the rest can be from previous seasons, I'd go with: "Xmas Story", "AOI I", "Luck Of The Fryrish", "Roswell That Ends Well", "Godfellas", "The Sting", "The Farnsworth Parabox" and "The Devils Hands Are Idle Playthings."

If Parabox isn't eligible (I forget) I'd go with "Bender Shouldn't Be Allowed On Tv".

Music: "The Sting".

Song: "The Sting" had the Bee Happy song, but Leela, Orphan Of The Stars probably have the best chance.

Writing: I agree on "The Sting".

"Parabox" should be eligible; it aired after "The Sting."

The "Bee Happy" song wasn't original, so it isn't eligible.

i found the emotion in homr equal to most of futurama.  tennis the menace was very good
it had one absolutley hilarious moment
with homers oedipus style dream.
bart looks at homers detached head stuck up like a moose head.
and he says
"he thought that trip to the guillotine factory was just for fun, but it was the perfect place to shoot him.
