Woohoo! Futurama got nominated for a big fancy Emmy!
 http://www.emmys.tv/awards/2001noms.htm

Amazon Women In The Mood, to be more specific. It's good to see a shred of recognition.

Do you think futurama will win this time?  I think "HOMr" is one of the worst simpspns episode ever... And I don't think PPG or KOTH could win because they aren't that funny sometimes.

There are 77 categories, with 5 nominations in each category. On account of my retardedness, I'll leave the math to someone else. Check the link I gave above for all the categories and nominees.

I remember HOMR being better than most season 12 episodes, but nothing outstanding...I'm surprised they submitted that episode for Emmy consideration. I think Trilogy Of Error would have been the best bet.

It's hard to say if Futurama will win, but I think the show has a legitimate shot this year.

The Simpsons have been pretty bad this season, and they didn't even submit their best episode. King of the Hill isn't funny at all(but then again, they DID win the year before last). Powerpuff Girls...that's a fun kiddie show, but I can't see it winning an emmy. I haven't even heard of that other show, "As Told By Ginger". But it's a Klasky-Csupo show on Nickelodeon...how good can it be.

The Simpsons were all over the chart this past season, from hillarious episodes to others which were, well, just bad. Nonetheless, if it really did come down to the Simpsons vs. Futurama, the former will get the nod because the show is one of the most revolutionary of all time. It's also the longest running comedy in prime time, people.

Emmy nominations are still good news though, people. Maybe it will convince Fox to keep Futurama around for a while.

Actually, I thought HOMR was one of the best ones this season.  That and the one where they went to Africa...Trilogy of Error was pretty good, too.  My guess is that the Emmy will either go to that, or the nickelodeon one nobody's heard of.  I kinda have my doubts that futurama will win...But I won't be paying an more attention to the emmies this year than I have before, so I don't really care.

I recently saw "Hello Stranger", the Emmy nominated episode of As Told By Ginger.  The style of art was not disimiliar to that of Rugrats or the Wild thornberrys, but like the latter it was much better written than Klasky-Csupo's first show.  The obvious humorous part of the episode reminded me of an old MSTed movie and Zapp's predicament in Comics No.4.  But the general human emotion in the other half was very heartfelt and well, emotional.  Basically, Ginger's father left the family earlier and on the night of her poetry reading, both her mother and brother are sent to the hospital for very different reasons.  Anyway, Ginger had called her dad and hoped that he would show up when she read her poem.  However, being a deadbeat, he did not.  Upon readig the actual poem, "Hello Stranger", Ginger tells someone of what's happened in the past year; the stranger being her father.  It's definately an experience some people can relate to.  This is actually the only episode I've seen, and if the whole series is this well-written, it's probably one of the best shows on Nickelodeon.  I'm kind of thinking that the Emmy will go to this show.  On a side note, the person who does the voice of Ginger's brother's best friend is one and the same of Gunter in Mars University.

Hmm...a non-romance oriented post?  That's a first for me.  love

It's the episode where Homer's stupidity is attributed to a crayon in his brain. After getting it removed, he becomes smart, and he bonds with Lisa and stuff, but then he gets tired of being a genius and has Moe put the crayon back.

Now that I think about it, I guess it was a pretty cool episode(I thought the Africa one was terrible though). But still, I think Trilogy of Error would have been their best bet. I didn't see a single negative review on alt.tv.simpsons, and they hate everything.

Almost all TV sucks, and so the Emmy Awards suck too...but I do care about the animation category this year. If Futurama wins, it'll help convince Fox to order a fifth production season. Plus maybe they'll start promoting the show more, pointing out how it's an "emmy-winning series" at every oppurtunity. Plus recognition in general is good. So even though they suck, it'll rock if Futurama wins an emmy.

I hated HOMr.  I thought it was horrible, and that it destroyed the Simpson Gene episode, which, incidentaly, I enjoyed.  I thought the Africa one was ok, not great.  Somewhat farfetched.  Trilogy of Error, was that the one with Linguo?  Because I liked that one.

Loved "HOMR", "Hungry Hungry Homer", "Lisa the Treehugger", and "Trilogy of Error". Hated that N'Stynk episode, the "nerd sweat" episode, and the "New Springfield" episode. More or less ambivalent about the others.

I loved Hr, HHH, LtTH, ToE, and P-squared.  I happen to hate *NSync, but it was still funny to me.  "No one said there was gonna be boasting!"  Another one of my little side notes, this eppy has the same storyline as the Josie and the Pussycats movie.  Y'know, brainwashing through music.  Off-topic, the highlight of that movie was Tara Reid as Melody.  The complete definition of a dumb blonde...  tongue

Trilogy of Error was a breath of fresh air - it was a plot concept you'd have expected from the Simpsons around seasons 7-8.

I thought that HOMR, on the other hand, was a great episode and I think that it was better than any single episode from Futurama. You had your "stupid" humor, a few clever jokes, and a touching moment between father and daughter at close. It's episodes like that which show why the Simpsons is still on the air after like 13 years.

Amazon Women in the mood was what they picked as the creme of Futurama???  O~well I am doubtful they will win with that one.
The King of the Hill episode seems most likely to grab it.  While I'm not a big KOTH fan, it was a good episode.  Also that Powerpuff episode was pretty smart too.  Whoever wins, they will deserve it.

I doubt Amazon Women in the Mood will win the Emmy.  I wonder why they didn't pick a better one like Luck of the Fryish.  I want Futurama to win, but I think PPG or As Told By Ginger will grab it.  Simpsons might, but I think King of the Hill is more likely.  Basically, after seeing all five episodes nominated, I like HOMr and Hello Stranger best.  I'm not abandoning Futurama, I just think the others were more interesting and had their human emotion.  You know how I love anything remotely weepy.  cry    big grin

Yeah As Told By Ginger is more of an emotional show, and that's what judges will probably look for.  I don't have my hopes down on Futurama though because in that ep it some emotion.  Mostly how Kif loved Amy but was too scared to call her.  That and it was pretty funny the snu-snu and all.  big grin

Fryrish is great, but non-fans probably wouldn't like it. Not being down with the characters, they'd find it boring and overly sentimental.

I disagree. Last year The Simpsons won for "Behind The Laughter". That had no emotion at all...in fact it didn't have a plot. It was just a series of funny gags and one-liners. Futurama is a comedy, and Amazon Women In The Mood is hilarious and easily accessible to people who aren't familiar with the show. I'm glad it got nominated.

I think everyone is selling Futurama short. I know it's not a guaranteed thing, but Futurama has just as good a chance of winning as the other shows.

September 16th. But technical awards are given out a few days before that(animated programs aren't good enough to be included in the Emmy broadcast).

Even if Futurama doesn't win the Emmy, there's something good that could happen when the Emmy Awards are broadcast.  I dunno if they did this last year, but in '99 when they had the Emmies, I saw early previews for A Flight to Remember.  Of course, they might not show previews for the season premiere, seeing as it's been moved to December.  Grrr, I hate Fox.  But then again, who doesn't?  mad

Yeah, I'm rooting for Futurama to win too, because maybe then the public would find out just how shamefully FOX treated this show.

Remember about 10 years ago, when FOX cancelled "The Ben Stiller Show", and it won the Emmy, and Ben basically used his speech time to diss FOX? Wouldn't it be cool to see Matt and David get to do that?

Thanks! I only got 2 of my plaques framed. The rest are buried in art boxes somewhere. And when I find them....I'll throw the 6th one in with them.

You know, tomorrow at work, everyone will be depressed that Futurama didn't win. I wonder if the balloons & confetti & champagne spilling out of my cubicle will seem a bit awkward.
