The Clone Wars Wins Two Emmys

This past weekend, The Clone Wars won two Daytime Emmy awards. The show won for Outstanding Special Class Animation Program, defeating another favorite of mine, The Legend of Korra, in the process. For his performance as the lightsaber-advisor droid Huyang in the Young Jedi arc, David Tennant won Outstanding Performer in an Animated Series.

Congratulations to George Lucas, supervising director Dave Filoni, producer Cary Silver, line producer Athena Portilloand and everyone who worked on The Clone Wars for this much-deserved recognition. Dave Filoni thanked the show’s fans on his Facebook page and George Lucas spoke to Access Hollywood.

Carrie Fisher was the presenter in the program category and brought her usual flair to the announcement. It’s not very often we get to see Carrie and George together these days, and to see her presenting him a major award is even better. Thanks to YouTuber elmoizme for sharing the video.
