    So, let’s do a little alternate history. Let’s pretend in 1970 they don’t make a separate Outstanding Animated Program category, and animated shows are now competing in the thick of the Comedy or Drama or Limited Series like live action shows. The question is, what would get nominated?

    For as competitive as the 90’s were for Outstanding Comedy Series, I can definitely see The Simpsons getting nominated for the majority, if not all of it (as well as beyond the prime, since the Emmys like sticking to shows like glue).

    Other than that donut in the room, what else would get in?

    Never mind, FAMILY GUY GOT IN 2009.

    … Wait, so no Simpsons nominations in the 90s? I know that was a prime decade for sitcoms, but The Simpsons was prime.

    See, I would argue it’s more of a drama this season, but eh, there’s animal puns and tongue-twisters, so that makes it more funny than all the comedy nominees last year.

    I think we still would just have that one nomination for Family Guy regardless.

    Bojack barely got into the animated category I hardly see it as a potential series nominee.
