Beyoncé’s Black is King, The Masked Singer, The Simpsons and Love, Death and Robots are among early winners for this year’s Emmy Awards, as the Television Academy announced juried category honourees in the fields of animation, costume, interactive programming and motion design.
Juried categories are decided by a panel of professionals in the appropriate peer groups with the possibility of one, more than one or no entry being awarded an Emmy. There are no nominees but a one-step evaluation and voting procedure with open discussions of each piece of work.
Outstanding individual achievement in animation was awarded to Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal, The Simpsons and four recognitions for Netflix’s Love, Death + Robots. Costumes for a variety, nonfiction or reality program went to Black is King, The Masked Singer, and Sherman’s Showcase Black History Month Spectacular.
The juried awards will be presented at the 2021 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which will take place in Los Angeles on September 11 and 12. An edited presentation of the ceremonies will be broadcast on FXX on September 18.
The Primetime Emmy Awards will follow on September 19, hosted by Cedric the Entertainer with a limited in-person audience in downtown Los Angeles.
