For years Family Guy has been one of the most irreverent and controversial shows on television. When your show gets canceled and only makes it back on the air due to a rabid Internet fanbase, it goes to show that you are one of the best at what you do. Family Guy has always strives to push the envelope, and not only does the show not apologize for this, they revel in it. Would you really think that Family Guy’s Emmy campaign would be anything less than over the top?

In a world that strives to be politically correct, Family Guy flips the world the bird. Like most comedies, when it comes to awards the focus is on fun (The Boondocks slogan their first year was “Fuck It, We’ll Try Anyway”). For Family Guy it is fun and making fun that they excel at. They decided to try a theme they call “Celebrating Diversity”. So without further adieu, here are the highlights from Family Guy’s Emmy mailer…

The “Celebrating Diversity” theme is carried on inside with a list of all writers on the animated show grouped by ethnicity/sexual orientation: “Family Guy – written by 8 WASPS, 6 Jews, 2 Asian and 1 Gay.” They also had their poster featuring Peter Griffin in the movie poster from Precious. It isn’t a bad idea but can it top their success last year when it won for Best Comedy, the first cartoon to win in almost 50 years. At least last year’s mailer had better reasons to vote for the show. “We peaked 3 years ago, so by your logic we should get an Emmy now; You have to vote for us — we did a holocaust episode; and Family Guy with Tina Fey… Not really, we just want an Emmy”.

Will Family Guy win another Best Comedy Emmy this year? They have my vote (not that I have one or anyone cares what I think).
