“Adventure Time” Big Winner In 2016 Television Academy Animation Juried Awards Winners
Cartoon Network’s “Adventure Time” artist received two Television Academy jury awards, including “Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation” for “Stakes Pt. 8: The Dark Cloud” story board artist Tom Herpich
The Television Academy announced today the juried award winners for the 68th Emmy® Awards in Animation. The juried awards for Animation will be presented during the Creative Arts Emmy program taking place Sunday, September 11, at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, California.
Juried categories require all entrants to be screened by a panel of professionals in the appropriate peer group, with the possibility of one, more than one, or no entry being awarded an Emmy. As a consequence there are no nominees, but rather a one-step evaluation and voting procedure. Deliberations include open discussions of each entrant’s work, with a thorough review of the merits of awarding the Emmy. At the conclusion of each deliberation, the jury considers the question, “Is this entry worthy of an Emmy award – yea or nay?” Only those with unanimous approval win.
The 2016 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, executive produced by Bob Bain, will be held over two nights: Saturday, September 10, and Sunday, September 11. FXX will broadcast the awards on Saturday, September 17, from 8:00 – 10:30 PM (ET/PT) with an encore from 10:30 PM – 1:00 AM (ET/PT).
