The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences has awarded Emmys to three recipients for outstanding individual achievement in animation in advance of next month’s 49th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards competition.
The winners are:
Gary Hurst, production designer for HBO’s “Testament: The Bible in Animation — Moses”;
Loraine Marshall, color director for the Family Channel’s “Willows in Winter”; and
Phil Weinstein, storyboard artist for CBS’ “Boo to You Too! Winnie the Pooh.”
Jeremy Irons and Rik Mayall were also honored with Primetime Emmys in the outstanding voiceover performance category.
