Duncanville leads the way with a record five nominations for Hulu’s Hilarious Animation Awards
As recent viewing trends show, Hulu viewers love adult animation. More than half of Hulu subscribers have watched content from this genre in the past year, and with new seasons and original Hulu Originals series regularly added to the streamer’s extensive library, Hulu is the premier streaming destination for adult animation fans.
That’s why Hulu is holding the HAHA Awards (Hilarious Animated Hulu Awards) for the second year to once again celebrate the best in adult animation. In 2020, fans cast more than 400,000 votes for their favorite shows, resulting in “Bob’s Burgers,” “Sunny Opposites” and “Family Guy” each winning multiple awards. New nominations for this year’s HAHA Awards include “Most Thunderous Burp” and “Most Explosive Burp,” and nominees range from beloved classics such as “Bob’s Burgers” to the 2021 comedy Housebroken.
Forty nominees were announced today, with Duncanville receiving a record five nominations in the categories of Best Supporting Child and Freshest Fan Favorite. Longtime fan favorite “Family Guy” and breakout hit “Great Northern” each received four nominations.
“The HAHA Awards showed us last year that adult animation fans are very passionate about their favorite shows, scenes and characters,” said Michael Schneider, vice president of brand, live and licensing marketing. “We are thrilled to award the best of the best in the genre for the second year and to continue to amass the greatest collection of animated hits with shows like Sunny Opposites, Family Guy and Bob’s Burgers.”
Hulu subscribers and non-subscribers can give their opinions on their favorite adult animation moments, characters and scenes by visiting the official award site. Fans will have a chance to decide if Tina Belcher’s hand puppet watching the audience was the most ferocious outfit? And who is the real duo in adult animation — Bart and Milhouse from “The Simpsons” or Roger and Steve from “American Dad”?
Sterling Archer is confident in his chances this year after winning Best Hangover Performance in 2020, telling voters that “the HAHA Awards are back, which means I’m up for more awards, which means you’ll be voting for me.” Jing of Duncanville, nominated in this year’s Best Supporting Child category, insists she’s “not doing it for the awards.”
