The Battle Of The Best Animated Shows Begins!!!

The nominations for this year's Primetime Emmy Awards have been officially released - and the animated TV competition is seriously intense!

The Short-Form Animation category celebrates TV cartoons that fall under the 30 minute mark, and this year, the nominees are as follows:
- Adventure Time "Hall of Egress" (Cartoon Network)
- The Powerpuff Girls "Once Upon A Townsville" (Cartoon Network)
- Robot Chicken "Robot Chicken Christmas Special: The X-Mas United" (Adult Swim)
- Spongebob Squarepants "Company Picnic" (Nickelodeon)
- Steven Universe "The Answer" (Cartoon Network)
Personally, I really hope Steven Universe wins! Adventure Time and the rest of these shows will always have a special place in my heart, but show creator Rebecca Sugar seriously deserves ALL THE AWARDS.
The Animated Program category honors the longer-running TV cartoons, and if you're someone who's watched any TV in the past 10 years, these shouldn't be surprising:
- Archer "The Figgis Agency" (FX Networks)
- Bob's Burgers "The Horse Rider-er" (Fox)
- Phineas and Ferb "Last Day of Summer" (Disney XD)
- The Simpsons "Halloween of Horror" (Fox)
- South Park "You’re Not Yelping" (Comedy Central)
This one is SUCH a tight race. You've got so many long-running animated TV shows against each other. However, I'm going to hope Bob's Burgers or Archer take the trophy home. (Although Halloween episodes of The Simpsons are always the best thing ever.)

So who do you think is going to win?

South Park Handles Racism Brilliantly.
You might not agree with how they address it, but you have to admit it is brilliant. (for the image above, the answer is naggers, people who nag or annoy you. obviously) South Park is a show that has caused huge controversy many, many times, and with the release of their new game "Fractured But Whole" they took their dialogue about racism to an entirely new level. The comedy RPG (role player game) features various levels of difficulty, from easy to very difficult, much like most games. What's different though is the difficulty affects the color of your character's skin. During the character creation section of the game, which you can see in the video below (skip to 5:40), you select the difficulty of the game. What's interesting is the easier the difficulty, the lighter your character's skin, the harder the difficulty, the darker your character's skin. It means if you want to play The Fractured but Whole on a harder than normal difficulty, you have to play as a person of colour. Now for those of you who at this point are thinking that the game creators are racists - wait. During the process, you're told "Don't worry, this doesn't affect combat. Just every other aspect of your whole life." When asked about this feature, Ubisoft developers told the difficulty of the game affects the amount of money you receive and the way other characters speak to you throughout the course of the game - nothing else, you have the same skills as everyone. The only thing that changes is how society views you. It is, quite clearly, a social commentary on racism in modern society, and as far as video games go, a pretty effective one. There is always going to be a white guy saying that he's not priviledged because he's never experienced what its like to be prematurely judged based on skin tone - so this video game will do it for them. For any POC that feels offended by this, okay, I can see where you're coming from, but for me I think it teaches an important lesson that no matter how skilled you are, how smart you are, whatever, your will always have to fight a little bit harder when your skin is darker. Personally, I'd love it if my white friends understood that more and I think this is a rad way to get that feeling through their heads. What do you think of this? Do you agree, or think its racist as hell?
