I found some news I found at "Evergreen Terrace" regarding emmy nominations for Best Animated Series:

"She of Little Faith" will be the episode submitted for consideration for the Best Animated Series Emmy Award. The writers chose this particular episode because of its even balance of comedy and story, its use of characters, and the discussion on the importance of religion. So far, it also seems Futurama will likely be putting up their Star Trek season finale episode, "Where No Fan Has Gone Before".

The Emmy nominations will be formally announced sometime in July

In quality, I think that Where No Fan Has Gone Before has a much better chance of getting nominated.

I'm not sure if "Where No Fan Has Gone Before" is quality material, for an Emmy nominee anyways. I haven't seen "Godfellas", but from what I've heard about it, it seems more suitable in terms of story / comedy / religious values.

Well, I dunno, Chris, they submitted "Amazon Women in the Mood" last year, instead of the superior (read: more balanced) "Luck of the Fryrish."  But I would definitely think "Godfellas" or even "Leela's Homeworld" would be better eps to submit, just for the issues/stories they present.

But who does the presenting, the network or the producers?

FOX would probably choose "Futurestocks".

"Godfellas" would be the wisest choice, and it's religious content is far deeper than "She Of Little Faith" is.

Fox will no doubt pick a weaker episode of Futurama since it would be easier to justify cancelling if it failed to win
