Family Guy got nominated for a Best Comedy Emmy!!!

Interesting enough, Family Guy got nominated in the Comedy category (not the usual animation, voice over, and music categories).

Wow. That's the second time an animated sitcom has been nominated for the Comedy category (first was Flinstones, and it didn't win). However, that means fiercer competition and it also means it got overlooked for the animated program category, a category that it has always lost to Simpsons or South Park (and had a decent chance of winning this year).

So Family Guy is leaving the animated series category to American Dad (first Emmy nomination), Robot Chicken, South Park, and the Simpsons to battle it out this year. King of the Hill didn't get nominated this year (but they won once in 97, which is more than Family Guy, American Dad, and Robot Chicken have done).

Also, it's interesting that no childrens cartoons were nominated for the category (previous childrens cartoons nominated include Spongebob Squarepants (08, 07, 05), Avatar (07), Camp Lazlo (06), Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends (06), and Samurai Jack (05).

All the nominations:
