Netflix, Funny or Die Among Winners at Creative Arts Emmys
In addition to the six juried Interactive Media Emmy winners it announced last week, the Television Academy honored more digital shows/projects and companies at the 2014 Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Unsurprisingly, Netflix led the digital pack with seven total wins, including three for its hit comedy-drama “Orange Is the New Black.” Uzo Aduba, who plays the popular “Crazy Eyes” character in the show, took home the Emmy for Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. The series overall also won in the casting and single-camera editing categories for a comedy series.
Other Netflix winners include the documentary feature film “The Square” (Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming, Cinematography for Nonfiction Programming, Directing for Nonfiction Programming), and political drama “House of Cards” (Sound Mixing for a Comedy or Drama Series — One-Hour).
Other winners of note from the world of digital: The online component of “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” (Best Interactive Program), comedian Zach Galifianakis’ interview with President Barack Obama on Funny or Die’s “Between Two Ferns” (Short-Format Live-Action Entertainment Program), and ESPN’s “30 for 30 Shorts” series (Short-Format Nonfiction Program).Tags: 30 for 30 Shorts, Between Two Ferns, Documentary, espn, funny or die, nbc, nbc entertainment, Netflix, Netflix Original, Orange Is the New Black, The Square, Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon
