2015 Emmy Nominees

In, of course, the animated (and related) categories:

Outstanding Animated program


"Bob's Burgers"

"Over the Garden Wall"

"The Simpsons"

"South Park"

Outstanding Short-format animated program

"Adventure Time"

"Regular Show"

"Robot Chicken"

"Steven Universe"

"Wander Over Yonder"

Outstanding Character voice-over performance

John Roberts, "Bob's Burgers"

Seth MacFarlane, "Family Guy"

Seth Green, "Robot Chicken"

Dan Castellaneta, "The Simpsons"

Tress MacNeille, "The Simpsons"

Hank Azaria, "The Simpsons"

Outstanding Special visual effects

"Black Sails"

"The Flash"

"Game of Thrones"

"Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D."


Outstanding Special visual effects in a supporting role

"American Horror Story: Freak Show"

"Boardwalk Empire"



"The Walking Dead"

All we want to know is, how does somebody arrive at "visual effects in a supporting role" as opposed to "visual effects"? (Maybe a snarling dragon that chews off the hero's leg is a lead visual effect, and set extensions/alterations is a "visual effect in a supporting role".)
