3 “Outstanding Program” Emmy Winners were Announced Yesterday

Yeah, the TV Academy thought they’d slip a trio of winners by us by announcing them over the “Creative Arts” weekend instead of during the upcoming primetime Emmy Award ceremony September 17th, but some of us got the news.

The writing Emmys will be awarded during the September 17th TV show, proving we TV writers are ready for primetime after all, but – as strange as it seems to this TVWriter™ minion – various acting awards and three Outstanding Program awards had to settle for the lesser presentation.

The Emmy for Outstanding Animated series went to – but of course – Rick and Morty.

The Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie went to – also an obvious choice – USS Callister: Black Mirror, “House of Tomorrow.”

The Emmy for Outstanding Original Interactive Program went to NASA JPL: Cassini’s Grand Finale.

Couldn’t help but notice that the first two shows mentioned here are science fiction, and the third is science fact.

Congrats to all the winners. On the face of it, it would seem that the Academy thinks of all of you as second citizens, but we know that can’t be true. After all, this is America, right? We’re all equal, you know?
