    Here is the official thread for two categories that hardly get much discussion.

    Animated Program (Less Than One Hour)
    We are likely to see the return of The Simpsons to the category this year. They have had an average season and there weren’t really any stand-out episodes like last year. Futurama is likely to return as well. Two very funny and very underrated shows are also contenders – Bob’s Burgers and American Dad!, both of which were nominated last year (the first nomination for the former, second for the latter). Family Guy could enter here and actually be a contender. The Cleveland Show is the lowest of the MacFarlane catalouge, but its still there to contend. Robot Chicken and Archer could also be dark horse nominees. I believe Phineas and Ferb deserves to be nominated.

    My Predictions:
    Family Guy (“Into Fat Air”)
    The Simpsons (“The Day The Earth Stood Cool”)
    American Dad (“Love. AD Style”)
    Archer (“The Papal Chase”)
    Bob’s Burgers (“Earsy Rider”)

    Kristen Wiig hopefully can get another nomination for Looney Tunes because her work is just as genius as Kristen Schaal’s jn Bob’s Burgers.

    When they announced that Archer was renewed for a fifth season, F/X also said it would enter the Emmy race in Comedy Series this year and not Animated Series.

    I’ll add my support for David Morse’s work on Robot Chicken’s Butchered in Burbank episode; a completely unexpected, wonderfully over-the-top voice-over as The Lorax! Though I’m a bit doubtful of his potential for recognition (it’s a very brief appearance), he has been twice nominated before; plus, Seth Green has thrice been recognized in this category for Robot Chicken.

    I apologize for my previous breach of protocol with starting a thread just on this performance; this is my first time using the forum.

    I just watched an episode of family guy called “Farmer Guy”. It was easily the best episode all season.

    ^ Adventure Time doesn’t compete in this category, but in Short Form Animation (and I do hope it finally wins this year, it’s the best show on tv).

    ^Technically, Adventure Time could compete in this category. Although Finn the Human/Jake the Dog was split into two short episodes, it was essentially one story told in the span of half an hour. If they wanted to, the show could be submitted in both the less than one hour and short format categories. Regardless, Adventure Time will probably only be submitted for short format animation.

    I didn’t know that, but I hope Cartoon Network gets on this and submits the show in both. I think it’s certainly big enough that it could pull it off. Also, this has to be the year they finally win an Emmy. I still find it kind of odd that Regular Show won before AT, and this season had some of the most daring and experimental in format episodes of the show (which is saying a lot), and they are overdue already, so it’s about time they win.

    Agreed. I think they have some great possible episodes to submit, especially if they want to go for a more emotional submission (I Remember You). This could be the year for them.

    In regards to half hour shows, Bob’s Burgers had an absolutely fantastic season. With the right submission (Tina-Rannosaurus Rex, Topsy, and O.T.: The Outside Toilet would be my frontrunners) they could run away with this one.

    With Animated Program, I was completely surprised at Penguins of Madagascar’s come-from-behind victory last year.  I think that they could seriously be a contender this year, although I haven’t seen any episodes.

    For “The Simpsons” this year, I don’t think that “The Day The Earth Stood Cool” is a good call.  I’m not sure how good the second part of their finale will be (it guest stars Seth MacFarlane as a guy who tries to get Marge), but that might be a better classic episode to submit.  It’s called “Dangers on a Train.”

    I think “Tina-Rannosaurus Rex” could be a winning submission for “Bob’s Burgers.”

    “Into Fat Air,” the season premiere for “Family Guy,” might be a smart submission, but I think “Ratings Guy” (with its Hollywood theme), “Turban Cowboy,” or “12 and a Half Angry Men” could also be submitted.  “Into Fat Air” didn’t get the best reception, if I recall.

    I also think it’s a big mistake submitted “Archer” for Comedy Series instead of Animation.  They could definitely win Animation, not Comedy Series.

    Had ATAS announced the rule change allowing shows entered in Animated Program to also enter in Comedy Series Writing when this was announced?  Unless Archer thinks it can get a series nod or a directing nod (and I wonder how many live-action directors consider animation directors as “real” directors), why bother entering as a comedy series?

     

    Voiceover question: do many actors who have regular roles on other shows but have single appearances on animated ones bother entering, considering the cost (IIRC, $100 for Academy members, assuming they use their free entry on their live-action show, and $200 for non-members)?

    The only real reason to enter yourself and pay for it would be if you think you could get the Emmy.  Anne Hathaway, who was never nominated and (as far as I know) wasn’t even a member of the Academy, submitted a “Simpsons” episode and won Voiceover Performance for it.  People do it because they want to check the Emmy off the list.

    Animated Program (Less Than One Hour)

    Actually, the “less than one hour” and “one hour or longer” categories were combined starting in 2010.  The only two categories for animation are “Animated Program” and “Short Format (i.e. “about 15 minutes”) Animated Program” (and note that the latter is now a category instead of an area, although I did notice that the Academy has gone back to its old “all Areas must have at least one winner” rule, so there wouldn’t be a repeat of what happened in 2009 in any case).
