Disney’s ‘Tale Spin’ Gets Late Nomination for TV Animation Emmy

July 26, 1991 GMT

LOS ANGELES (AP) _ The syndicated TV special ″Disney’s Tale Spin: Plunder & Lighting″ on Thursday was named the sole nominee for best animated program of more than one hour in the Emmy Awards competition.

The nomination of ″Disney’s Tale Spin″ brings to almost 80 the number of categories in this year’s competition, which include best drama, comedy and mini-series, the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences said.

The Disney show initially fell short of the votes needed to receive a nomination. A show must receive the endorsement of two-thirds of voters who participate in the balloting, the academy said.

Officials reviewed the votes and said it appeared people thought they did not need to vote for or against the show because it was the sole entry on the ballot.
