‘Samurai Jack,’ ‘13th’ Win Juried Emmy Awards

Adult Swim’s action-adventure series “Samurai Jack” and Netflix’s searing documentary “13th” were among the winners of juried Emmy awards, handed out by the Television Academy. These awards — in the categories of animation, motion design, and interactive programming — will be presented at the Creative Arts Awards ceremony on Saturday, September 9.
Entrants in the juried categories are screened by a panel of professionals in the appropriate peer group with the possibility of one, more than one, or no entry ultimately being awarded an Emmy. As a result, there are no nominees but instead a one-step evaluation and voting procedure. Deliberations include discussions of each work with a review of the merits of awarding the Emmy. The jury then considers whether the entry is worthy of an Emmy with a “yea” or “nay” vote. Only those with unanimous approval win.
This year’s juried winners are:
Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation
Samurai Jack” (Adult Swim/Cartoon Network Studios)
Bryan Andrews, Storyboard Artist
Scott Wills, Production Designer
Craig Kellman, Character Designer
Lou Romano, Background Designer
