‘Family Guy’ Writer Breaches Etiquette, Campaigns for Emmy Votes

Jul 20, 2009  •  Post A Comment

Openly campaigning for Emmy votes usually isn’t done by writers, but “Family Guy” writer Patrick Meighan sent an email around Hollywood that one recipient called a “naked trolling for votes,” Deadline Hollywood Daily reports.

The series got a Best Comedy nomination, the first time an animated series appeared in the category since 1961.

Meighan writes that “since I, in particular, am new to this whole Emmy scene, I’m gonna violate longstanding rules of Emmy decorum and beg you — if you happen to be a member of the TV Academy — to please consider wasting your Best Comedy vote on our cartoon picture!”
