Emmy Nominations: Adult Swim & Cartoon Network Get 9 Nominations Combined

This morning at just before 6 AM, the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences had their annual announcement for the show that gives out the big chunk of copper, nickel, silver, and gold that is held in such high regard in the world of television. The Emmy Award, if you didn’t catch on.

This year, Cartoon Network and Adult Swim have gathered up 9 nominations in total, plus there’s one for Bob’s Burgers, and a few for Family Guy that I’ll include. Some of these shows have seen this honor before. Some haven’t. Some are extraordinarily deserved. Some are slightly less so. Take a look at the list of CN/AS nominees here (and if you’d like to see the entire list of nominees and try to count how many Breaking Bad got on just your two hands, they’re on Deadline right here):
