DreamWorks Scores 5 Daytime Emmys; Netflix Tops Toon Outlets

The 45th Daytime Creative Arts Emmy Awards took place Friday night in Pasadena, honoring programs, performers and creative craftspeople in the television and digital streaming space. CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful and the largely live-action kids’ classic Sesame Street tied for most awards with seven each, while DreamWorks Animation Television was behind the most animation winners with five Emmys — making good on its seven nominations — and helped Netflix take the top platform place for animated programs with eight.

For DWA’s series, this year’s additional victory brings the Trollhunters total to five Emmys; two wins for All Hail King Julien: Exiled add to the previous series’ cumulative five; and Dinotrux also scored a double, with two previous Daytime Emmy Awards.

Also padding their win record were Bix Pix/Amazon’s beautiful stop-motion series Tumble Leaf, which now has 11 (including a second Individual Achievement in Animation award for colorist Robyn Yannoukos). Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants now has four Daytime wins, with 2018 delivering the Children’s Animation Series award and Tom Kenny’s first Emmy for voicing the iconic character.

JibJab Media/Netflix’s A StoryBots Christmas was another double winner, out of five nominations. The Ask the StoryBots series won the Interactive Media – Enhancement to a Daytime Program prize last year.
