'South Park' Nominated for 2011 Emmy

Congratulations to South Park for its eleventh Emmy nomination for this season's episode "Crack Baby Athletic Association". It was my second favorite episode of the season but a strange choice to submit. I wonder if they submitted it as a joke. They have so many damn Emmy awards I doubt they care anymore. But I still hope they win because even the worst episodes of South Park are still better than anything else on television. So let's take a look at all the Emmy-nominated South Park episodes over the years.
