Two of my favourite Emmy categories don’t even show up on the Emmy telecast for some unfathomable reason. But whatever. Who do you think has a chance?
Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons and South Park are most likely shoe-ins. BoJack Horseman and Rick and Morty have critically acclaimed second seasons, but both have failed to get nominations before. Also Gravity Falls has aired its final episodes, and that show has a pretty big fan following, so I don’t think it’s completely out of the question. Also, expect a fringe contender to get in unexpectedly.
February 18th Predictions
- Bob’s Burgers (“???”)
- BoJack Horseman (“Escape from L.A.”)
- The Simpsons (“Halloween of Horror”)
- South Park (“Stunning and Brave”)
- something else.

Yeah, Bob’s Burgers and South Park are locked in with The Simpsons being very likely as well. To go with them Archer seems like a safe bet after getting in the last two seasons. That would leave 1 spot left for BoJack, Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty, Star Wars Rebels, and maybe F is for Family if they’ve seen it, but there has been no buzz for it. I think the buzz for BoJack has been enough that it gets in over the others, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Rick and Morty gets in, it all depends on if they have seen it because if they have it gets in easy. Gravity Falls would be a surprise given they haven’t nominated it before, same for Star Wars Rebels.
Predictions-In Order of nomination likelihood
1. South Park
2. Bob’s Burgers
5. BoJack Horseman
6. Rick and MortyFebruary 19, 2016 at 7:35 am #367712
Maybe Family Guy for “Peternormal Activity” for Seth in the voice over catagoryFebruary 19, 2016 at 9:27 am #367713
Also, I would love for Will Arnett and Justin Roiland to get nominated in Voice-Over Performance but I don’t know if they will. They are pretty safe with nominating the usual suspects of Family Guy and The Simpsons actors. That being said, Hank is probably a safe bet for the newest episode “Love is in the [yada-yada-yada]”

Two of my favourite Emmy categories don’t even show up on the Emmy telecast for some unfathomable reason.
The main reason is probably, every category on the main show involves shows that everybody has heard of. No, not everybody has heard of Rick & Morty or Bojack Horseman.
This especially applies to the voiceover category.
Everybody knows who Charlie Brown is.
Name one person who has voiced him.
That pretty much sums up why voiceover isn’t a category on the main broadcast.February 19, 2016 at 8:33 pm #367715
