Looks like ponies has once again been nominated by a major awards group, this time the Daytime Emmy Awards! In particular, Daniel Ingram has been nominated not once, but twice, for Outstanding Original Song in the Children's and Animation category. The songs nominated include Every Pony from Sweet and Elite and the Find a Pet song from May the Best Pet Win!
While the show wasn't nominated for any other awards, seeing pony at least make an appearance at these award ceremonies is a wonderful thing and is a testament to the talent and skill of the team behind MLP:FiM. Keep up the great work you guys and congratulations Mr. Ingram on your nominations! You've certainly earned it!

Some of you have been asking why did This Day Aria and Smile, Smile, Smile not make it for nomination. Remember, these awards are for content that premiered in 2011 so those songs didn't have a chance of making the list. We'll have to wait till next year for Smile, Smile, Smile as well as Aria to have a chance.
