Surprising that the Simpsons never made it…

Blechhh, I guess good taste doesn’t factor into the nominations.

Unfortunately, it’s not unprecedented. “The Flinstones” was nominated for Best Comedy over a far superior animated series, “The Bullwinkle Show” back in 1961.

Simpsons should have been nominated years ago. i dont think the stuff they are doing now can compete with the shows mentioned above. Family Guy also is nowhere near as funny as its first few seasons which makes it even more surprising that they suddenly decided to honor an animated series.
