    I thought Wilfred or Louie would be nominated for best comedy, and MoaCA for drama. A little disappointed.

    Futurama better win best animated series.... It's by far the funniest and most creative animated show on televsion. If it doesn't win then the critics are obviously f*cking idiots, or are getting paid to vote for someone else.
