Primetime Emmy Award For Outstanding Animated Program (for Programming Less Than One Hour)

The Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program (for Programming Less Than One Hour) is a Creative Arts Emmy Award which is given annually to an animated series which is judged to have been the best. Each series is allowed to submit one episode, and a special.

The Simpsons has won the most Emmys for Animated TV Series with 10 (out of 21 years of nominations), followed by the various Garfield specials which have won a combined four (out of 12 nominations). Though Fox could also submit episodes from The Simpsons or other series for consideration in the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series category, rules stipulate that a single program cannot be submitted in more than one category. The Simpsons was submitted to the Comedy Series category in 1993 and 1994 which happen to be the only years the series has not been nominated in the Animation category.

Famous quotes containing the words award, outstanding, animated, program and/or programming:

    The award of a pure gold medal for poetry would flatter the recipient unduly: no poem ever attains such carat purity.
    Robert Graves (1895–1985)

    Both Socrates and Jesus were outstanding teachers; both of them urged and practiced great simplicity of life; both were regarded as traitors to the religion of their community; neither of them wrote anything; both of them were executed; and both have become the subject of traditions that are difficult or impossible to harmonize.
    Jaroslav Pelikan (b. 1932)

    And what if all of animated nature
    Be but organic Harps diversely framed,
    That tremble into thought, as o’er them sweeps
    Plastic and vast, one intellectual breeze,
    At once the Soul of each, and God of all?
    Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772–1834)

    If the worker and his boss enjoy the same television program and visit the same resort places, if the typist is as attractively made up as the daughter of her employer, if the Negro owns a Cadillac, if they all read the same newspaper, then this assimilation indicates not the disappearance of classes, but the extent to which the needs and satisfactions that serve the preservation of the Establishment are shared by the underlying population.
    Herbert Marcuse (1898–1979)

    If there is a price to pay for the privilege of spending the early years of child rearing in the driver’s seat, it is our reluctance, our inability, to tolerate being demoted to the backseat. Spurred by our success in programming our children during the preschool years, we may find it difficult to forgo in later states the level of control that once afforded us so much satisfaction.
    Melinda M. Marshall (20th century)
