'Phineas and Ferb', 'Archer' and more Nominated for Emmy Awards
In the Outstanding Animated Program category the Phineas and Ferb series finale Last Day of Summer picked up a nomination, alongside adult animation series Archer, South Park, Bob's Burgers and- of course- The Simpsons.
Conversely in the Animated Short Program Robot Chicken is the only adult-orientated series nominated. The rest of the category is dominated by Cartoon Network, with Adventure Time, Steven Universe and the rebooted Powerpuff Girls. The final slot goes to another long-running show, with Spongebob Squarepants.
In the voice over category, both Matt Stone and Trey Parker are nominated for South Park, and Seth MacFarlane gets his usual nod for Family Guy. Keegan- Michael Key and Chris Pine round out a notably all-male line up, picking up nods for Supermansion. The normally represented Simpsons is notably absent here, as indeed is literally every female voice actor.
Elsewhere, animation is represented by another nomination for The Simpsons for sound editing and for It's Your 50th Christmas Charlie Brown in the children's category.
