emmys.gifEmmy Nominations were announced this week, with several comic fan favorites making the list.

Under the category of Drama Series, NBC’s Heroes, the surprise hit of the year makes the list, as does Masi Oka as Hiro Nakamura for Supporting Actor in a Drama. The series also received a nod for Art Direction, and editing for the Heroes: Genesis episode.

While not comic-specific, Entourage, which featured series star as Aquaman in the Season 1 arc, made the list all over the place – and if you aren’t watching the HBO series, what’s wrong with you?

Battlestar Galactica also had several nominations including Felix Alcala in the Director for a Drama category, Ronald D. Moore for writing the two part Occupation/Precipice episodes. The series is also up for Sound Editing For A Series, as is the CW’s Smallville.

In the Animated Program (less than one hour) category we find the following:

  • Avatar: The Last Airbender: City Of Walls And Secrets
  • Robot Chicken: Lust For Puppets
  • The Simpsons: The Haw-Hawed Couple, Fox,
  • South Park: Make Love, Not Warcraft
