Honorees in two categories announced early

Community” and “Phineas and Ferb” are among shows that have won primetime Emmys for individual achievement in animation, while “Gettysburg” and “Portlandia” nabbed kudos for costumes for a variety/music program or special.

The honors came in special categories that bypass the traditional nomination-ceremony stages and allow for more than one winner, based on a simple criterion: “Is this entry worthy of an Emmy Award?” Winners received unanimous approval from the jury of professionals for the categories.

Seven Emmys were handed out for individual achievement in animation, with one going to character animator Drew Hodges for his work on the “Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas” episode of NBC’s “Community.”

Background painter Jill Daniels and background designer Brian Woods each won Emmys for the “Wizard of Odd” episode of Disney Channel’s “Phineas and Ferb,” while character designer Peter Chung and character animator Sung Chang earned kudos for Cartoon Network’s “Firebreather.”In addition, animation Emmys went to character designer Philip Bourassa of Cartoon Network’s “Young Justice” (Warner Bros. Animation) and production designer Vanessa Marzaroli for “Lilac Wine,” presented on drmartens.com by Blind.

Finally, costumer designer Kate Carin and costume supervisor Abigail Metcalf won Emmys for History’s “Gettysburg” miniseries, while designer Amanda Needham and supervisor Niki Dimitras did the same for IFC’s “Portlandia.”
