2023 Emmy Predictions:
Outstanding Animated Program

Weekly Commentary: Scott Mescudi, better known as rapper and musician Kid Cudi, is in the Emmy race this year for his groundbreaking animated series “Entergalactic,” which streamed on Netflix. Voicing the role of Jabari, for which he was recognized as an honoree from the Critics Choice Association’s Celebration of Black Cinema and Television back in December 2022, the Grammy winner looks poised to add another industry accolade nomination to his credits. He’ll take on his Netflix counterpart “Big Mouth,” in addition to category staples like “Archer” from FX, “The Simpsons” from Fox and “South Park” from Comedy Central.

Coincidentally, the massive success of Sony Pictures’ “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” seems to have put the industry in a very animation-friendly mood.
