Adult Swim’s Primal and Netflix’s Love, Death + Robots continued racking up honors at the Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which were handed out by the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences over the weekend.
Individual members of both crews had already been named as winners in the juried section of the Emmys. Yesterday, the shows won the categories in which they were nominated.
Primal won best animated program. It was up against Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, and South Park, all of which have won the award multiple times, as well as Big Mouth, which was nominated for the third year in a row. Despite the presence of perennial favorties, the category is surprisingly competitive and unpredictable. Since 2010, ten different shows have won the award.
