Arcane is the first gaming series to win an Emmy

Arcane is the first gaming series to win an Emmy ...

Arcane is back in the running again this year, this time for an Emmy Award. But the Netflix series has some tough competition.

Arcane has already won many animation awards at the 2022 Emmy Awards, but it is also in the running for the greatest Animation Emmy "Outstanding Animated Program."

It's hard to imagine the show not winning this award as well as Arcane's? What honors has Arcane already won at the Emmy Awards?

Arcane Wins Outstanding Animated Program

Did anyone think that Arcane would not be the biggest Emmy in animation? Fans know that work was put into this program after the huge success of the show, and even going behind the scenes in a short YouTube segment about the show.

Arcane was announced as the first series from a streaming service to win the Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program on September 4, 2022, as well as the first time a video game show.


Arcane Wins Three Awards Ahead of Emmys

During the Emmy Awards, not every category is shown on television. Some awards are given out in advance. Otherwise, the show would last four days, and well, ahead of the official Emmys, Arcane has already won three awards.

Anne-Laure To, a colour script artist, won an Emmy for her role in the episode "The Boy Saviour." The second award went to the episode "Happy Progress Day" where Julien Georgel was awarded for art direction and then "When These Walls Come Tumbling Down," where Bruno Couchinho was awarded the Emmy.

So, with these awards already under their belt, what else can Arcane do on the night of the Emmys?

Nominees for Emmy's "Outstanding Animated Program" are all Emmy.

When it comes to award shows, animation is usually dismissed. The Oscars are a joke, since they are simply winners of whatever Pixar film the judges have heard of before. Therefore, having unique and brand-new animated series and films added to them, is a must. Now it's just important that the judges watch and give the medium the respect it deserves.

Nevertheless, after all of the ranting, it's time to examine the 74th Emmy Awards nominees.

  • Arcane
  • Bob's Burgers
  • Rock and Morty
  • The Simpsons
  • What If...?

It's a little surprising to see that neither Arcane nor What If...? has any images. While Bob's Burgers, Rick and Morty, and The Simpsons have both been nominated for the Emmys for the first time.

When Are the Emmy Awards Aired?

The Emmy Awards will take place on September 12, 2022. You may also watch Arcane this year to find out if she has won another award!

  • Robot Chicken
  • Star Wars: Visions
  • The Boys: Diabolical

Will you be following the Emmys this year, or are you bored with award shows as we are? When it comes to awards, animation seems to be getting the short end of the stick, but hopefully more successful shows like Arcane will put the medium on the map and demonstrate that it isn't just for children.
