Ohh man. Some days, things just keep getting better and better. Apparently, we - Horse News - are actually receiving direct messages from one of Hasbro's Public Relations teams. This is of course a huge 180 degree turn from our assumption that Hasbro either has no idea we exist or hates us. Ya know; US. Those guys. The ones with the lingerie contests and the jokes about the buttsex.
Hello sweeet sweeet validation.
Anyway what they sent - 2 emails over the last 2 weeks - aren't anything really super urgent or that we didn't already know, but that's beside the point.
If YOU didn't know; MLP is up for a Daytime Emmy, and there was also a Game of Thrones style trailer released earlier this month.
Oh, guess what, TOMORROW IS SEASON 6!
We survived another hiatus. Though this one felt hollow compared to the previous year-long ordeal. It's like we never truly left.
I won't be watching because it will be like nighttime and I'll be in Tokyo during all that.
As you may have already seen, the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards nominations were announced today, and it was a very good afternoon for Hasbro Studios programming.
