Eat our collective shiny metal shorts, Homer, Ginger, Cartman and Bobby Hill!
After nominations in 1999 and 2001 for the Outstanding Animated Program (For Programming Less Than One Hour), Futurama won the Emmy award in that category with the season 4 premiere episode "Roswell That Ends Well"!
Talking about the Simpsons, Groening once said:
"What happens generally if we win the Emmy for best animation show is that that gives us another couple of years [to run it into the ground]."So let's hope that first part is true for Futurama, too. Together with the recent syndication on Cartoon Network, the Emmy can only help the show and maybe convince FOX to make a commitment here.
Congrats go to Groening, Cohen, Burns, Moore and all the other people involved.
The creative arts categories will have a two hour highlights telecast on E!, September 21 (8:00 p.m.)
