This Is What Emmy Voters Actually Believe


The 2005 episode of South Park that pitted the boys against Scientology and Tom Cruise has been nominated for an Emmy.

The episode called "Trapped in the Closet" implies that Cruise is gay and makes fun of Scientology.

Cruise's fellow Scientologist Isaac Hayes reportedly quit because he was upset with the episode. And when it came time to rerun it, Cruise allegedly called Comedy Central and demanded that it be pulled.

"Trapped in the Closet" is pitted against four forgettable episodes of declining series ("Family Guy"?)—it's unclear if the academy will pull a Jethro Tull or a Steely Dan.

One sure thing: You can meet Trey Parker and Matt Stone by attending Reason in Amsterdam, less than two months away.
