    Even though The Muppets has been cancelled, it doesn't mean that it can't get some Emmy love. I looked at the Emmy ballots and found that several people and episodes have been inserted for consideration, I'm not sure if I found them all, but here's the link and the nominations I found are below.

    Thoughts? Do you think anything can win or be nominated? I really hope something does just to stick it to ABC, also on July 14 the emmy nominations will be announced.

    Wow that's kind of nice! Hopefully a few of the puppeteers get nominated and even win! That would be cool if the show won an Emmy though! :p

    I wish all the puppeteers listed here could be nominated. They're all outstanding performers and did some of their best work on this series. They all deserve an Emmy!

    I'm not keeping my hopes up, but it's possible it could get nominated for something smaller like cinematography, but you never know maybe they will win, the puppeteers really deserve it, and remember The Muppets are no stranger to the Emmys, The Muppet Show won 4 Emmys and got nominated 21 times. But I do think the show would have a better chance if ABC had renewed it.

    Remember this is for consideration. This means literally nothing beyond that being a guarantee.

    Best comedy is going to go to something dramatic on cable or netflix that barely qualifies as comedy.

    Oh ya, there's no chance it wins best comedy, I think it's possible though it gets a nomination in something small like cinematography.

    I much as I would LOVE to see one of the performers win, it's an extremely long shot that they'll even get past this stage.

    I have the feeling they knew that Veep was going to be the award winner, and they felt bad a show with a message like Transparent wasn't (also, Black-ish was snubbed to here and back), so they did that thing where they give it various apology awards in things that it really shouldn't win. Personally, Silocon Valley and Muppets were more qualified for that.

    But frankly, I'm far more annoyed that in Short Form animation, Steven Universe, specifically the amazing episode "the Answer" (where Ruby and Sapphire accidentally fuse and form a relationship at the expense of having to run and hide from their disapproving leader) lost to "Robot Chicken Christmas Special!" Not even the episode with the wonderful Talespin/Jungle Book/Borne Identity skit. Nope. I find it totally hypocritical that they throw awards at Transparent, yet ignore a similar message in a younger target demographic show in spite of the parental groups that would love to have it pulled off the air.
