  • I hope Gravity Falls or Garden Wall win!

    • Josh Moore

      I’m hoping both shows win at least one award.

  • Josh Moore

    I’m hoping Over the Garden Wall wins at least Best Animated TV/Broadcast Production For Children’s Audience. It’s my favorite out of the shows of that category and that mini series needs more love especially when it premiered at the time Dish Network took off most of the Time Warner channels.

  • John

    Why is Regular Show in the ‘General Audience’ bracket? Also, kinda disappointed in the lack of Steven Universe representation. Especially with the formulaic Regular Show in place of it.

    • Josh Moore

      To be fair, Regular Show is more adult compared to other Cartoon Network shows at the moment. They show a lot of gun fights and deaths.

      • John

        I might agree if we were talking about the first season, but the show is very tame now in terms of ‘adult’ humor, even in comparison to the other CN originals currently airing. The ‘deaths’ are just people cartoonishly turning into explosions, and guns aren’t an issue in kids TV if nobody gets shot. It doesn’t warrant a TV-PG rating at all.

        • Josh Moore

          Actually there was a season 4 episode where Santa Claus got shot with a gun. There was also a recent episode where a character kills another guy by breaking his neck and put into a cabinet (ai’m sure he was dead). In the same episode a woman falls to her death from falling off a plane and gets eaten by a shark.

      • Honestly, if it came down to Legend of Korra or Regular Show earning that “General audience” bracket, it should have gone to Legend of Korra hands down. I do realize I’m comparing two shows from completely different companies, but these brackets are not limited to a single company.

        Regular Show might have intense fight scenes, but the deaths are fart jokes in comparison to the Legend of Korra; I’m honestly surprised it wasn’t given a TV 14+, rather than a TV 7+ rating.

        **KORRA SPOILERS AHEAD – DON’T READ IF YOU PLAN ON WATCHING THE SERIES**

        In Book 1, the two main antagonists die in a very tragic setting; both are brothers: one commits suicide, simultaneously murdering the other, so that he can’t hurt anyone anymore.
        In Book 2, Korra murders her uncle to keep him from allowing the darkness to conquer the world.
        In Book 3, one of the four antagonists murders the earth queen by suffocating her with the air from her lungs; he attempts the same thing later on with Korra, but goes on to be the only living antagonist by the end of the season, as the others were either murdered or committed un/intentional suicide.
        Although we aren’t finished with Book 4, Korra nearly murdered the seasons’ main antagonist before being overtaken and nearly decapitated herself.

        Given that all these deaths and suicides took place on-screen, in a very serious setting, and Korra continues to be advertised towards a “Children’s Audience”, there’s no reason to believe that the Regular Show earned a “general audience” bracket for the reasons you mentioned. Honestly, it doesn’t make sense why the roles aren’t switched…I can’t imagine an adult enjoying the Regular Show

        • Josh Moore

          To be fair, Regular Show actually has a huge adult fanbase along with Adventure Time.

          Strangely enough I would consider Adventure Time more adult oriented too. The show has been getting away with a lot of sexual innuendos and references recently that might be considered too inappropriate.

          • Re-reading my old comment, I don’t know why I said I can’t imagine an adult enjoying regular show. I must have been in a “mode” when I wrote that thing, thinking about only my mom and what she would say about it.

            Both shows should have had the general audience bracket, but the winners have been announced! Whoo Korra!

  • Yay Boxtrolls

    Congrats to The Boxtrolls for leading all movies with 13 nominations! I was worried that it would be overlooked by Big Hero 6/Lego/Dragon2, but it deserves it. The most beautiful movie this year, inside and out. Especially impressive that two of the four voice noms were for Ben Kingsley (the best villain this year) and Dee Bradley Baker (for a role that was just emotive grunts and mumbling!!).

  • Nicole

    Hopefully Korra wins for the category of best animated children’s program. Not only does it have gorgeous hand drawn animation but the series is amazingly written with well developed characters and good moral lessons, also including very mature and dark topics.

    • I’m pretty happy with all the nominees for the TV category this year, though I admit I’m torn between Korra and Over the Garden Wall for the win.

    • Josh Moore

      It’s a shame Nick treats it horribly compared to how it treated Avatar. It was probably their best show in years.

  • sjur

    Really weird to see Masaaki Yuasa nominated for an award like this, he used to be so obscure…
    I hope he wins though!

  • AJ

    Legend of Korra should win! It’s the most sophisticated animation I’ve encountered in my life. It’s also a very empowering animation that teaches everyone of all ages to persevere! Legend of Korra is also very funny. A great watch for everyone in the family.

  • Rachel

    You have games like Transistor and Tearaway (not released this year but as an example) that go way outside the box and look good doing it. Even this year’s Mario games look super crisp and, dare I say, gorgeous. You a LOT of games this year that either have new things or the same deal but looking MUCH better. Forza and Assasin’s Creed are neither; they’re rehashed titles with no innovation whatsoever.

    Also, Don’t Starve was released a year ago. I don’t see why the console version suddenly counts when the PC version has been out long before then. I love the art style but it’s the wrong year.

    Child of Light is the only one that fits up there.

  • Camilo Lizarazo

    I really love The Legend of Korra.

  • Guest

    Hope Wander Over Yonder wins a few awards!

  • Ahiru Lemonaide

    I really love to win the legend of Korra. It has a very good animation, character development and the soundtrack. It is in my opinion one of the best series I’ve seen.

  • Cam Jirrey

    I really hope “Over the Garden Wall” wins in its’ categories (even if it’s only got 2 nominations, yet it deserves more). Heck, it deserves ALL the awards that come its’ way!

  • monica

    Wallykazam! Tee Hee Hee

  • Was actually expecting Over the Garden Wall to have an Annie nomination for music. The Blasting Company did a fine job on that.
