Hanford High graduate J.G. Quintel has picked up two nominations for the “65th Primetime Emmy Awards.” This is the third consecutive year that Quintel has earned at least one Emmy nomination.
He picked up the first nod in the Outstanding Animated Program division for his Cartoon Network program “Regular Show: The Christmas Special.”
His competition will be: “Bob’s Burgers: O.T.: The Outside Toilet,” “Kung Fu Panda: Legends Of Awesomeness: Enter The Dragon,” “South Park – Raising The Bar,” and “The Simpsons – Treehouse Of Horror XXIII.” It should be noted that Roosevelt High School, graduate Mick Wingert provides the voice of Po in the “Kung Fu Panda” series.
The other nomination for Quintel was in the Outstanding Short-format Animated Program category where his “Regular Show” episode “A Bunch Of Full Grown Geese” faces “Adventure Time – Simon & Marcy,” “Clarence,” “Disney Mickey Mouse Croissant de Triomphe,” “Regular Show – A Bunch Of Full Grown Geese” and “Robot Chicken – Robot Chicken’s ATM Christmas Special,”
“Regular Show” follows the animated adventures of Mordecai (voiced by Quintel), a 23-year-old blue jay, and his best buddy Rigby (voiced by William Salyers), a 23-year-old raccoon, along with their oddball friends. It launched in September 2010. The “Christmas Special” episode looks at what happens when a present built by one of Santa’s elves must be destroyed.
The Emmys will be awarded during the “2013 Creative Arts Awards” scheduled for Sept. 15.
