The Emmy Awards ceremony is still a few weeks away, but the Cartoon Network claimed a handful of prizes Monday when the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences announced winners in select animation and costume categories.
The categories are juried awards, meaning there were no nominations announced. The awards will be presented at the Creative Arts Awards ceremony Sept. 12 at the Nokia Theatre in downtown L.A.
Animators for two Cartoon Network series won Emmys for background painting: Joe Binggeli for "Chowder" and Chris Roszak for "The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack." Two more won for character animation: Elizabeth Harvatine for "Moral Orel" and Joshua A. Jennings for "Robot Chicken."
And Andy Suriano won for character design for Cartoon Network's "Underfist: Halloween Bash."
Shigemi Ikeda won the Emmy for art direction for Spike TV's "Afro Samurai: Resurrection," and the Emmy for outstanding costumes for a variety/musical program went to Soyon An for the Fox series "So You Think You Can Dance."
