MAD gets its first Emmy nomination!

I’m a little late in posting this since the news came out a week ago, but MAD has been nominated for a 2012 Emmy award in the category of OUTSTANDING ANIMATED PROGRAM SHORT-FORMAT for our Halloween episode, and I couldn’t be prouder; of the cast, of the crew, of the animators and of the writers. Knowing how hard everyone works day after day leaves me little hesitation in saying it is well deserved. I was interviewed about my reaction to the nomination by both The Hollywood Reporter and Variety and the follow up question is always, “What do you think of the competition?” Which is funny because in this case they’re all friends or acquaintances. The “they” being ROBOT CHICKEN (where I continue to contribute as a writer and voice actor, although not for this particular episode.) ADVENTURE TIME and REGULAR SHOW (who share the 8 – 9 o’clock time slot with us Monday nights on Cartoon Network) and PHINEAS AND FERB (with whom I don’t actually have a relationship, but who we’ve parodied many times on MAD.) So it’s all very familial (Seth actually plays Gordon Ramsey in our nominated Kitchen Nightmare Before Christmas sketch) and the feeling is basically, “Hey, we all got a ticket to the same party!”

That being said, I hope they’ll all have the good sense to forfeit 🙂

  1. Good luck. Been enjoying watching MAD at 12.30 am lately…they kind of abridge the eps into one long half hour one. It’s cool.
