Not ONE single nomination for Best Comedy. Why shouldn't SP ever be up for Best Comedy? Even my Modern Family loving wife thinks that SP is funnier than Modern Family. That's the point. There have been many (but not all) BRILLIANT seasons of South Park that are worthy of Best COMEDY, not simply Best Animated Program (which are for single eps anyways).
I hope that the reason they get screwed as to Best Comedy noms is that they have an odd season schedule with seven eps airing in March and April and the other seven are in October and November, and thus for emmy season it's really the second half of one season plus the first half of the next. I hope it's not an emmy bias against extremely funny programs that happen to be animated or an anti-Trey and Matt bias. Family Guy has a Best Comedy nod, but not SP? IMHO, better be because of the odd scheduling. There have been stretches of SP that have been too good to NOT be worthy of Best Comedy consideration.
