The winners of the 47th Daytime Emmy Awards – Children’s, Lifestyle & Animation were announced Sunday in a telecast, on watch.theemmys.tv and the @TheEmmys app, hosted by Loni Love (The Real), with recipients and special guests like Blue’s Clues and You star Josh Dela Cruz making video appearances from home due to pandemic precautions.
Some additional categories were announced via Twitter (@DaytimeEmmys) at the same time, while others will be awarded at a separate ceremony in July.
Animation luminaries were certainly in the virtual spirit, judging by early tweets from DuckTales co-creator/EP Frank Angones and Vampirina / Doc McStuffins creator Chris Nee!
It was a great evening for Netflix, which scored in the Outstanding Children’s Animated Series (The Dragon Prince), Preschool Children’s Animated Series (Ask the Storybots) and Special Class Animated Program (The Last Kids on Earth). Also announced during the stream were the Performance in an Animated Program awards for children’s and preschool series, with Tom Kenny scoring his second Emmy for starring in SpongeBob SquarePants, and Matt Danner earning his first for playing Kermit and others in Muppet Babies — he has previously been nominated in this category as well as for directing the show.
