Nominations were announced today for the 68th annual Emmy Awards, presented by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
The nominees in the two major animation categories might seem familiar: seven out of the ten shows that were nominated in 2015 were nominated again this year. In the animated program category, the only newcomer is Phineas and Ferb Last Day of Summer, which joins returning nominees Archer, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, and South Park.
Cartoon Network dominates the other key category, short-format animated program, with four out of five nominees: Adventure Time, The Powerpuff Girls, Robot Chicken, and Steven Universe. Spongebob Squarepants is the sole non-CN nominee in the category.
