I feared this would happen. Who knows, but it is possible that Jurassic Bark was not even considered by the emmy voters based solely on the fact that it was cancelled. The Emmy voters (unlike us) wouldn't want to embarass Focks by giving one of their former shows an Emmy. If this is the case (I hope not but we should consider it) then next year's nominated episode wouldn't matter, granted that the voters are kept the same.

Maybe instead of just assuming, you could actually, ya know, WATCH the episode before you judge it.

But since no one is actually answering my question, I'll answer it myself, or at least list the problems I had with "Three Gays":

The gay gags.  Not all of them, they were just a little hit and miss.  Some were great  (like Smithers' cameo), but there were some others (like Homer's dancing) that were a little too weird for my tastes.  Nothing overly offensive, but a few bombs here and there.

Weird Al.  Again, more uneven then bad.  I liked parts of the scene, and in fact I suspect the only reason I didn't like it is that there have been so many other cameos in the past.  It was pretty much used in the same context as Tom Jones, etc.  Anyways, I did find it a little cheesy overall and it wasn't my favorite scene.

So the episode isn't flawless (especcially compared to the absolutely perfect Jurassic Bark), but that's all that's actually WRONG with it.    And IMO, the goods outway those smaller problems.  Great down to earth "family" plot, lots of very touching scenes (especcially the flashbacks, but also the ending), and lots of great humor to boot (Patty and Selma billboard, "she's stealing sponges", "I love you Atari", "I am in Disney land.  DISNEY LAND", the ending song, etc).  Yes, it shouldn't have won, but blame the emmy voters for that, not an otherwise good episode that deserved its emmy nomination if nothing else.

You know, this explains a lot about Sweetmelly.  It seems as though she's a week behind the rest of the world.
