Futurama with 2 Primetime Emmy award nominations 2011!Great news people, Futurama has been nominated for 2 Primetime Emmy awards 2011 for 2 episodes of Season 6A!

I would like to start with the Best Animated Series nomination for the episode "6acv07 - The Late Philip J Fry". Here you go the group of nominees in this category:
  • The Cleveland Show - "Murray Christmas"
  • Robot Chicken: "Star Wars Episode III"
    Cartoon Network
  • Futurama - "The Late Philip J. Fry"
    Comedy Central
  • The Simpsons - "Angry Dad - The Movie"
  • South Park - "Crack Baby Athletic Association"
    Comedy Central
This is quite great, since "The Late Philip J Fry" is quite a nice story and has a lot of heart. Is also the first Primetime Emmy nomination of Futurama since the series are back on TV as real half-hour episodes (the movies as episodes are not the best chopped up, I prefer those as movies).

The second and also great nomination is in the category of Best Voice-over Performance, and this time it is great to hear that Maurice LaMarche is the one nominated for his performance of Lrrr and Orson Welles in the episode "6acv11 - Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences". Here you go all the nominees:
  • Christopher Plummer as Narrator
    Moguls & Movie Stars - The Birth Of Hollywoodd
  • Bob Bergen as Porky Pig
    The Looney Tunes Show - Jailbird And Jailbunny
  • Seth Green as Batman/Cobra Commander/Judge/Light Cycle Driver/Newscaster/Robot Chicken/Nerd/Teenager/Venger
    Robot Chicken - Catch Me If You Kangaroo Jack
  • Maurice LaMarche as Lrrr & Orson Welles
    Futurama - Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences
  • Dan Castellaneta as Barney Gumble/ Homer Simpson/ Krusty the Clown/ Louie
    The Simpsons - Donnie Fatso
  • Brenda Strong as Mary-Alice Young
    Desperate Housewives - Come On Over For Dinner
We knew from Moe himself way earlier that he was submitting his work of that episode to the Emmys, so it is great to see him nominated for the Best Voice-over Performance again after 13 years (his last Emmy nomination was in 1998 for his work on Pinky and The Brain).

Don't forget to cross your fingers or tentacles (or both), the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards 2011 will be announced on September 10, 2011 (59 days left) and aired at a later date on the E! Network.
