Family Guy makes Emmy history!
Major congratulations are in order to the team over at the hit animated show Family Guy. The show has earned itself a big Emmy nomination.
Outstanding Comedy series!
In all of Emmy history, only one other animated series has ever been nominated in this category and that was The Flintstones back in 1961.
(Fun Fact- The Flintstones is a production of Hanna-Barbera, which is where Family Guy creator Seth McFarlane got his start. There, now you're smarter.)
The show is up against some heavy, heavy competition - such as Entourage, Flight of the Conchords, How I Met Your Mother, The Office, 30 Rock and Weeds. The odds aren't in their favor, but for once the phrase "an honor just to be nominated" is very, very true!
So congrats Team Griffin and may we just say…Giggity.
