2022 Emmy nominations ballot: See all 42 Animated Program contenders

Since 1979, the TV academy has honored the field of animation by awarding the Best Animated Program Emmy on an annual basis. In its current form, this primetime category allows submissions targeted at audiences aged 13 and above, with series and specials made for younger viewers being relegated to the Children’s and Family Emmys. Since the creation of a separate short form category in 2008, submissions here have also been required to have runtimes in excess of 15 minutes.

The 2022 Best Animated Program ballot list below consists of 42 entries. Per category rules, all are either one-off specials or single episodes of continuing series. Seeking their dozenth victory and first since 2019 is the team behind “The Simpsons,” who just wrapped their 33rd season. Other shows hoping for repeat wins this year include “Archer,” “Bob’s Burgers,” “Rick and Morty,” and “South Park.”

Unlike the nominees in most program categories, which are chosen by all 22,000 plus academy members, the animated program contenders are picked only by voters from the animation, children’s programming, interactive media, and motion and title design branches. This year, they have until June 27 to cast their ballots, which will be tallied to determine the five nominees that will be announced on July 12.
