Cartoon Network draws early Emmys

Academy gives out seven juried awards

Cartoon Network is taking an early lead in this year’s Primetime Emmy race, picking up five of seven juried awards announced Monday.

The TV Academy announced winners in two categories — costumes for a variety/music program or special and individual achievement in animation — both of which will be handed out during the Creative Arts Awards ceremony on Sept. 12.

In both juried categories, there are no nominations; instead, anyone “worthy of an Emmy” is recognized.

Among the animation winners are character animators Elizabeth Harvatine, for Cartoon Network’s “Moral Orel,” and Joshua Jennings, for the channel’s “Robot Chicken.” Also picking up the Emmy will be background painters Joe Binggeli, for Cartoon Network’s “Chowder,” and Chris Roszak, for the cabler’s “The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.”

Additionally, the net scored an individual achievement in animation Emmy for “Underfist: Halloween Bash” character designer Andy Suriano. And Spike TV picked up the sixth trophy in the category, for “Afro Samurai: Resurrection” art director Shigemi Ikeda.

In the costume category, Fox’s “So You Think You Can Dance” won the Emmy, which goes to costume designer Soyon An.
