Arcane becomes the first gaming show to win an Emmy

"League of Legends spinoff Arcane (opens in new tab) was a commercial hit for Netflix and Riot Games, topping charts worldwide, and has now put the cherry on the cake by becoming the first streaming show and the first based on a videogame to scoop a bunch of Emmys. 

The big award was for Outstanding Animated Program, and given out at the Emmys' Creative Arts ceremony, and Arcane won over a shortlist that featured Bob's Burgers, Rick and Morty, The Simpsons and Marvel's What If…?"

"The Emmy joins three Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation Emmys, which earlier this year were given to individual episodes ('The Boy Savior', 'Happy Progress Day' and 'When These Walls Come Tumbling Down')."

"The Emmy joins the nine (!) Annie Awards already in Arcane's trophy cabinet"

Well deserved and a big day for game adaptations. Hopefully now the critics and wider public will stop sleeping on it. Can't wait for Season 2!

Around the Network

Never was a fan of LOL at all, but man Arcane was fantastic. Loved it. Very well deserved.

Great series, amazing animation and story telling. Weird compared to the actual game which stories are something to be desired for sure.

Hmm, pie.

Never heard of it

Bite my shiny metal cockpit!

Well deserved, it was an incredible show that blew away my expecations and set a new bar for video game adaptions.

Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023. (And over 130 million lifetime)
