(July 14, 2016) - Crackle, Sony's streaming network, earned three Primetime Emmy(R) nominations today including one for Jerry Seinfeld's "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" and two for the stop-motion animated series "SuperMansion." "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee" was nominated under Outstanding Variety Talk Series, garnering the first-ever digital series nomination in this category and the first time the show was nominated outside the short-form category. For "SuperMansion," Keegan-Michael Key and Chris Pine were nominated in the Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance category.
Eric Berger, GM Crackle and EVP Sony Pictures Television Digital Networks: "We are so deeply proud of the work Jerry and the team at Embassy Row have done to bring 'Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee' to life and making the series part of the zeitgeist. The show allows us to see the very personal side of some of the best loved comedians and bold faced names and Crackle couldn't be more honored with this nomination."
"Congratulations to the talented 'SuperMansion' team including Keegan-Michael Key and Chris Pine for their two nominations. Also a special thank you to the creators Matthew Senreich and Zeb Wells at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios as well as Bryan Cranston and Seth Green. It takes great vision to bring this kind of series to life -- you've inspired us and we are honored that the TV Academy has acknowledged the series and Crackle in this meaningful way."
In "Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee," Jerry Seinfeld takes a funny friend for coffee in a classic car, sharing stories and off-the-cuff laughs along the way.
