The 2020 Creative Arts Emmys, handed out virtually over five nights this week, concluded tonight.
The award for animated program was won by Adult Swim’s Rick and Morty for its “The Vat of Acid Episode.” The Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland-created series bested Big Mouth, Bob’s Burgers, Bojack Horseman, and The Simpsons in the category. It’s the show’s second Emmy win, following its first Emmy in 2018.
With Bojack Horseman having ended its six season run on Netflix earlier this year, tonight’s nomination marked the show’s last chance to win an Emmy Award. While the critically acclaimed show has received numerous other accolades, including four Critics’ Choice Television Awards, three Annie Awards and two Writers Guild of America Awards, it ends its run without ever having won an Emmy Award.
