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!
