Animated fare honored with Emmys

'Foster's Home,' 'Creature Comforts' win prizes

Both “Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends” and “Creature Comforts America” have won Emmy Awards for animation.

The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced Monday that the two skeins each won the juried award category for individual achievement in animation. Ben Balistreri won for the “Mondo Coco” episode of Cartoon Network’s “Imaginary Friends,” and Teresa Drilling took home an Emmy for CBS’ “Creature Comforts” episode “Self Image, Winging It, Art.”

In the category of costumes for a variety/music program or a special, costume designer Shanna Knecht and costume supervisor Elizabeth Tagg won for their work on the “Ballpark Frank” episode of TBS laffer “Frank TV.”

Keith David took home the prize for his voiceover work on “A Necessary War,” an episode of Ken Burns’ PBS miniseries “The War.”

Juried awards are selected in categories in which there are no nominees, and winners are selected by a blue-ribbon panel of experts in relevant disciplines. Categories may have more than one winner or no winners at all.

Last year, there were 10 honorees in the animation category but none for voiceover.
