The winners of the 40th Daytime Emmy Awards were announced yesterday and, as usual, Sesame Street took the awards by storm, winning seven new gold statues to add to their already massive collection. Deadline has the list of all of this year's winners, but you can check out the seven awards that Sesame Street won below!
Outstanding Pre-School Children's Series
Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series - Kevin Clash as Elmo
Outstanding Directing in a Children's Series - Kevin Clash, Matt Vogel, Joey Mazzarino, Ken Diego
Outstanding Achievement in Main Title and Graphic Design
Outstanding Achievement in Multiple Camera Editing
Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing (Live Action)
Outstanding Writing in a Children's Series
Incredibly, even after his resignation from the show, Kevin Clash still won another Emmy for Outstanding Performer for his role as Elmo. And unsurprisingly, Sesame Street swept the big categories for Children's Series: Directing, Writing, Editing, and overall series.
Congratulations to Sesame Street and all of our friends at Sesame Workshop on their massive wins! Keep sweepin' those clouds away!
