Here's some good news for Transformers Prime cartoon fans. We might all be eagerly awaiting those new episodes (they really left us hanging with that cliffhanger in Toxicity!) but the show continues to impress in a different way - with a second year of wins at the Daytime Emmy awards. Transformers Prime took two Daytime Emmys this year - the Emmy for outstanding special class animated program which went to the whole crew; and the Emmy for outstanding individual achievement in animation for Supervising Color Designer Christophe Vancher. That's two years of wins for Transformers Prime now - can they make it three?

Congratulations to Christophe and the whole crew at the Hub - the awards are well deserved.

Not surprised in the least, Prime by far has the best CGI animation for a TV series... of all time.

Seriously, it's better than the first Toy Story. Maybe not animation wise, but the shading.

What about Green Lantern & Star Wars?

Way better then Green Lantern. I do think Clone Wars is better though.

No. Definitely not Green Lantern. Star Wars... maybe, but do they have giant robots transforming constantly?
Plus something about the texturing isn't as good as Prime.

Plus the humans in TFP don't have ridiculously large noses.

That is pretty cool. Well deserved I think.

After looking over the winner list...I don't get all the animated love for Kung Fu Panda...it's okay, but award worthy? Okay.

As from the words of Adventure Time's Ice King, "right on, right on!"

Wonderful news!

As a huge fan of Prime (the show and the toys) I'm very happy to hear that justice was done and the show netted a few well deserved rewards. Now if they'd just give us an indication of when the show is coming back on the airwaves...

Awesome! Congratulations to all The Hub folks for working their asses off to deliver this cartoon to us.
JoeHavok
Totally deserved! I've been so happy with Transformers Prime. Keep up the great work.

That's good to hear. It's nice to see a Transformers cartoon getting mainstream recognition. I just hope it help to ensure it continues to get new episodes made. It would be a great boost for Hasbro if Prime is able to get enough episodes made so they can sell it for daily syndication. I believe it would need somewhere around the 90-100 episode mark.

Very excellent news... and how did Peter Cullen not win last year (personal bias I know)?
Seeker
I always thought that this showed deserved a award for animation. I just looks great on a LCD screen.
Kantus Prime
Good. This show really deserves some awards. Especially over Fanboy and Chum Chum if I remember correctly. Vangelus discussed it before.

See told you guys this show doesn't suck, it's great.

Peter Cullen is a legend to Transformers fans, and was a legend for a long time with his work with Disney for Eeyore, but overall, Peter Cullen has lost a couple of steps in his voice acting work.

Listen to his work in G1 and compare it to Prime. The lines sound forced, strained, and overall unemotional (and when it is emotional, it's so forced it hurts).

Frank Welker on the other hand deserves some love for his Megatron, as it's a proper evolution of the character and can still deliver any line with emotion, cander, and uumph.
General Tekno
Cullen can do range with Prime - we saw that in the opening threeparter. I think it's more a matter of the voice direction.

Welker on the other hand.... his Megatron has never been better.
toaster
Well deserved.
BB Shockwave
So... this show gets Emmies, while Young Justice, Green Lantern TAS and Thundercats got NOTHING?

It's the same thing like in music, I guess - I will probably grow old and die before poor Joe Satriani ever gets an Emmy.

At least Kung Fu Panda got some well-deserved rewards, but the other shows... Really? TUFF Puppy gets an Emmy for design!?! While Thundercats doesn't?
