Cable shows with multiple nominations were led by R.L. Stine’s The Haunting Hour on The Hub (9), Kung Fu Panda: Legends of Awesomeness (7) on Nick and Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Cartoon Network (7).
 
YouTube is in the running for two shows in the Outstanding Lifestyle Program, with Capture w/Mark Seliger and Hooked Up w/ Tom Colicchio. Additionally, YouTube and Facebook share a nomination for Outstanding New Approaches—Original Daytime Program or Series for The Beauty Inside.
 
While broadcasters have soaps, cable’s strength is in animation. It’s sure to win the Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program–zero broadcasters are represented. The Hub, Cartoon Net (3), Nick and Disney XD are in the running. The same networks (minus Disney XD) are up for the Outstanding Directing in an Animated Program. The 6 winners of the Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation category are from cable toons, and the animation sound editing and sound mixing categories are also dominated by cable nets.
