“Bob’s Burgers” picked up its second Emmy for Best Animated Program on Saturday night’s Creative Arts ceremony. The program previously won this category in 2014 with the episode “Mazel-Tina.”
According to our combined odds, the show was ranked third in our predictions center with 14/5 odds of winning. The episode “Bob’s Burgers” won for this year was “Bob, Actually,” which looked at all the characters of the show as they embarked on Valentine’s Day adventures. Bob takes a hip-hop dancing class, Louise tries to save a boy from getting his heart broken, Tina deals with bad diarrhea while trying to make a grand gesture, Linda helps someone getting over a breakup and Gene discovers the wonders of dark chocolate.
The favorite in the category was “Archer” which had 6/5 odds of taking home the award for their episode, “Archer Dreamland: No Good Deed.” The season seven premiere had the titular character in a coma after being shot at the end of last season. The entire season then took place inside Archer’s head where he is a private eye in the 1940’s looking to avenge the death of his partner, Woodhouse. Other regular characters from his life, including his mother, Lana, Cyril, Pam, Cheryl, Ray and Krieger, are all there as different incarnations of themselves.In second was 10-time winner, “The Simpsons,” with 11/4 odds of winning. They submitted the episode, “The Town,” where Homer takes the family on a Boston vacation hoping to school Bart in how awful the place is. Things take a turn when the family ends up loving the city so much that they actually move there from Springfield.
Tied for last place in our odds was five-time champion, “South Park,” and first time nominee, “Elena and the Secret of Avalor.” “South Park” submitted their season 20 premiere, “Member Berries,” which shows the residents of our favorite mountain town trying to reboot the national anthem so that it appeals to a more broad audience. Mr. Garrison is also doing better than expected in his run for president and Randy discovers how to mellow out by eating member berries. “Elena” submitted their feature-length episode which served as a crossover with another Disney show, “Sofia the First.” Elena recounts how Princess Sofia set her free from the Amulet of Avalor and helped her reclaim her kingdom from the evil sorceress, Shuriki (Jane Fonda).
