Afro Samurai: Resurrection Gets an Emmy (nomination)

Go anime!


 
 
The Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has announced earlier today that Afro Samurai: Resurrection has been nominated for an Emmy in the “Outstanding Animated Program (for programming one hour or more).” Surprisingly, it is only competing against another program, which is Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends, “Destination Imagination.” It’s almost as if the Emmy itself is like the “Number One headband”, with only two people fighting for it.

So I would say there is a good chance of this movie actually winning. I’m not sure if it deserves to win, being just a giant Afro Samurai episode with enough breasts and blood to shake a cat at, but if it’s anime it gets my approval. The Primetime Emmy Awards will air on September 20, so check it out.

I won't be watching the Emmys but it would be nice for anime to win something.

Makes me laugh that Family Guy got nominated for an Emmy.
