As long as What If doesn’t win, I’m happy.March 13, 2022 at 8:02 am #1204844313
South Park hasn’t won in 10 years. What are you talking about? It arguably should have won last year.
And the pandemic special was the first time it was nominated since 2018. Out of the old stable shows (Simpsons, Bob Burgers, Big Mouth etc) South Park is really the one that consistently pushes itself creatively. Seasons 18 & 19 are near perfect television.March 13, 2022 at 8:33 am #1204844352
Besides Arcane, at the Annie Awards:
– What If won Editing;
– Maya and the Three won Television for Children and Music.March 20, 2022 at 6:52 pm #1204863088
“Planteau” from “Tuca & Bertie” wins Best Animation. It’s the first non-“Simpsons” and non-“Bojack Horseman” WGA winner since “Bob’s Burgers” in 2016. (x)
Now that Tuca & Bertie is on Adult Swim, I wonder if it can pull out a
winnom after reading about its WGA win.March 20, 2022 at 6:56 pm #1204863102
There are so many good animated shows out there, and these categories keep nominating The Simpsons and Bobs Burguer and whatever FOX throw at them.
I hope this changes in the near future.
All things Succession, Severance, Ted Lasso, The Great and The White Lotus! Also, Colin Firth and Janelle James while you're at it.May 25, 2022 at 2:06 am #1204962848
Just curious to ask if What If is eligible this year or was it last year?May 25, 2022 at 2:15 pm #1204963593
I’m keen to see how well Love, Death and Robots and Arcane each do in the juried categories. I was thinking this season Netflix could probably move the former up to the main Program category since the branch loves it so much, but I’d forgotten about Arcane. It’d be better to keep the shows separate to give them each a chance.
I haven’t quite finished Love, Death and Robots but I’m pretty sure they’ll submit either Bad Travelling or whichever episode Alberto Mielgo directed.May 25, 2022 at 3:25 pm #1204963648
Other than Invidivual Achievement in Animation, what juried categories are even open to non-stop-motion animation?
Since Individual Achievement in Animation is a broad title and can be awarded to different aspects of a production, I think of the actual category/ies as being those specific areas (e.g. Production Design, Character Design, Background Art). I’m always interested to see which elements of each show the branch thinks merit recognition. Hope that clears it up!May 27, 2022 at 7:23 am #1204965254

This branch is extremely averse to new shows – for example, they snubbed Primal the first time it was eligible even though it went on to win 4 juried awards (and was nominated and won the next time it was eligible), and they took years to nominate any show from a streaming service.
With that in mind, despite its Annie sweep I still wouldn’t rule out them snubbing Arcane. Star Wars is a very tempting option since the Clone Wars series won twice. What if? would fit the mini trend they had a few years ago of nominating something from a big family-friendly franchise among the perennial contenders. At the moment I think I have
1. The Simpsons
2. Bob’s burgers
3. Rick and Morty (probably going to win unless Arcane is nominated)
4. Big Mouth (it’s primarily an actors’ show but it’s made it in for the past two seasons)
5. What if? (might change to Star Wars)July 5, 2022 at 9:35 pm #1205004444
Arcane should be winning, hopefully the Emmys won’t snub it.Not now
