“Steven Universe” has gained it first nomination in the Outstanding Short-Format Animated Program for the episode “Lion 3: Straight to Video”.
This is the first time the Cartoon Network show is nominated and it comes from the episode, of its first season, where Steven finds out a VHS tape in a hidden field in Lion’s mane. While watching the video, he sees for the first time his mom, who was pregnant with him.
The quirky series has hit some emotional punches throughout its run and that can be an advantage for Emmy glory. Personally, it’s one of my favorite animated shows ever. It’s full of fun, cute animated and serious story plots and themes.
Here are the other nominees:
|Adventure Time||“Jake The Brick”||Cartoon Network|
|Mickey Mouse||“Mumbai Madness”||Disney Channel|
|Regular Show||“White Elephant Gift Exchange”||Cartoon Network|
|Robot Chicken||“Chipotle Miserable”||Adult Swim|
|Steven Universe||“Lion 3: Straight To Video”||Cartoon Network|
|Wander Over Yonder||“The Gift 2: The Giftening”||Disney XD|
What are your thoughts on the category?
I want Adventure Time to win this, I don’t mind if anyone but Mickey Mouse win this. Three in a row will be excesive.
