TEENAGE ROBOT SHUT OUT AT OSCARS! Despite a stellar year for My Life as a Teenage Robot, the popular and critically acclaimed show walked away without a single Academy Award at the end of the three hour plus awards ceremony in Hollywood last night. Fans were outraged that the groundbreaking show wasn't given the recognition it deserved. An Academy spokesman pointed out that the Oscars are only given to feature films, not television shows, but his excuses fell on deaf ears for the throngs of Jenny fans protesting outside the Kodak Theater.  Posted by Hello

Cute Oscar of Jenny.

*sigh* Academy Awards is for feature films, not television shows. Emmy Awards is for television shows, including Teenage Robot. Keep that in mind.

But I'm happy "The Incredibles" won for Best Animated Feature Award!!! The movie rocks!

Aren't you talking about the Annies? I saw those, and I was pretty pissed that Teenage Robot didn't win any awards, you guys should of at least won one! But that's pretty sweet to be put up against Spongebob for best cartoon show, saying it's one of the "so called best shows in America". Or they could have just been setting you up. >:( It was hard for me to choose between Candi Milo and Carolyn Lawerence for best voice in a show, I ended up sticking with Milo (YAY!!!) beceause her voice is so, well, unique! I think she deserved that award! But just remer that Seonna Hong won that Emmy for Individual Achivement!

Now, about those Daytime Emmys... any chance for an award for best cartoon or kid's show or something like that?

Jessie Winkler said...

Oh, you are kidding about that third season thing, right?

Andrew N.P. said...

Aw. No Oscar? That's okay. The only awards that really matter... are the Country Music Awards.

Heck with this! I say there should be a Teenage Robot Movie! Whoo! That way, Teenage Robot could win all KINDS of awards, because then it would be in another category! Whoohoo!

Wow... meaningless spam and nonsense. Hmm... you know some of us actually appreciate the fact that we are able to talk to the writers of our favorite show. Jenny, please don't ruing this oppurtunity for all of us. The writers and artists are taking time out of their hard-working days to talk to their fans. Be respectful.

Gee, this spamming problem is getting on my nerves...

Anyway, tyde45 is right about that 'cause if MLAATR were to be a animated feature, it could have earned the recognition Jenny deserves! Remember kids, (and a good lesson to XJWriter!) TV shows + Annual Academy Awards doesn't equal to Oscar!!!

- Glen!

Judging by the repetition, it's probably not intentional spam, just a severe case of double posting. So, uh,...

Attention "Jenny"! Only click the Publish button ONCE when you make a comment! It will be posted eventually. Okie-dokie? :-)

If you want to try for an Oscar. Make a My Life as a Teenage Robot: Movie!

CDB said...

LOL, nice gag! Oscar night was another historic night for my people. Jamie Foxx won the Oscar for Best Actor for his in "Ray". Morgan Freeman won Best Supporting Actor for his part in the movie "Million Dollar Baby".

Its only a matter of time before Tiff & Brit bring one home.. Though imagine what outfits they'd be wearing. ..haha!!

INOLIS AND JENNY! STOP SPAMMING!

The idea of a MLaaTR movie is not so far fetched as one might think.

The demand for Sponge Face was enough to have at least one movie made and there are tens of thousands if not 100s of thousands of Jenny fans out there also.

With the demand being high enough for a 3rd season of Teenage Robot even before the second season aired, and the call for merchandise remaining strong, I think Frederator and Renzetti may have plans they are keeping under wraps.

The question may be --can they get Janice, Chad, Candi and the others to committ to such a long term engagement? A 2 hr movie takes a lot longer than a few 12 minute cartoons to dub.

It helps to know that they have such postive support from fans like us.

MLAATR couldn't win an ocsar as a show but if it got a movie, oh man, Jenny on a BIG screen. (drools)

Hi,

Just surfing around for similar sites to mine with information on agent budget travel and came across your blog.
Great site you have here, does agent budget travel seem a popular amongst bloggers? I've thought of putting up a blog related to agent budget travel on my web site.... but I'm not sure if it would be of help yet.

Thanks for letting me nose around :)
Take care.

You know, years in the future looking back, I really feel like a third season should have been put on hold for a movie instead. Obviously, Teenage Robot had the creative potential in all departments to get awards, not just be nominated for them. However, going up against the monolith that is Spongebob and not having a movie really put this great show at a disadvantage.

Think about the comparison here: Spongebob had it's first three actually good seasons and a movie. That was what really launched the show into permanent money making with Nick before the writers walked off and the show turned into garbage. Teenage Robot was allegedly struggling by it's third season, and was heading down the road of cancellation. Remember the gigantic wrap up to season two that was Escape From Cluster Prime though? That was awesome, but it probably should have been a feature length movie with more of a budget instead. Some ideas for season three could have been put into place for the last episode of season two instead, and more time could be focused on making a film with a slightly higher level of drama and risk for the protagonist. I get that perhaps the creators wanted to focus on just continuing the show they loved to make, but the lack of a movie to pour limited resources into definitely did hinder this amazing show.

Another interesting comparison: look at the Fire Emblem series. It was starting to fall off of relevancy for a while, and Nintendo said the franchise was likely going to be shelved. So, they made Fire Emblem Awakening as a final hurrah, and said that the game had to sell more than 200,000 copies, or else it'd be canceled for good. So, they POURED their resources into reinvigorating the series with that one game. Every good feature about the series prior was reintroduced, the whole game was re-stylized, the art and music were transformed, very talented writers were kicked into action, and the game as of right now has sold over 2,000,000 copies. That's ten times what they expected.

Now imagine if something similar happened to Teenage Robot. Imagine ten times the reception, and standing even with Spongebob. By now, Teenage Robot could have kicked Spongebob's monotony out of relevancy through better ratings. Think too that one of the first set of creators to openly start a blog to interact with their audience wouldn't just walk away from the show; it's clear you guys loved working on it. That's why I'm not ridiculing anyone for not making a movie; how could you have known the show was going to be canceled? And hey, I obviously don't have all the answers; but it's just a passing though. A thought that Escape From Cluster Prime turns into a movie instead, takes an extra few months to make, and rocks Nick's world.

Here's to the creators though for still pulling off an awesome, timeless, and very charming show!
