Simpsons win Emmy

Simpsons News — Posted 30 Aug, 2006 by Scott

The Simpsons episode The Seemingly Never-Ending Story won the Emmy for "Outstanding Animated Program (for Programming Less Than One Hour)". It beat competition from Family Guy, Camp Lazlo, Foster’s Home For Imaginary Friends, and the controversial Scientology-mocking episode of South Park, Trapped in the Closet.

In his acceptance speech, Simpsons executive producer Al Jean joked: "This is what happens when you don't mock Scientology."

It is now the ninth Emmy the show has won. The wins are:
1990: Life On the Fast Lane
1991: Homer vs. Lisa and the 8th Commandment
1995: Lisa's Wedding
1997: Homer's Phobia
1998: Trash of the Titans
2000: Behind the Laughter
2001: HOMЯ
2003: Three Gays of the Condo
2006: The Seemingly Never Ending Story
