Emmys: ‘Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist,’ Joseph Gordon-Levitt win early juried awards

NBC’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Adult Swim’s Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal, FX’s Archer and YouTube’s HITRECORD from Joseph Gordon-Levitt are among this year’s first batch of Emmy winners, as the Television Academy announced juried award winners on Tuesday.

Winners in juried categories like Individual Achievement in Animation, Choreography and Interactive Programming, which do not include nominations, will be handed out on the fourth night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards virtual presentation on Thursday, September 17.

Mandy Moore won her third Emmy for choreography as Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist took the juried prize for scripted programming. Non-scripted choreography gets its own competitive category, which Moore has won twice before (for Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance and ABC’s Dancing with the Stars).

Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s HITRECORD and Brian Graden Media earned their second Emmys, for YouTube’s Create Together, which won for outstanding innovation in interactive programming.

The virtual 2020 Creative Arts Emmy Awards will stream on beginning Monday, September 14 through Thursday, September 17, at 8pm ET/5pm PT. The fifth night will be a live broadcast ceremony on Saturday, September 19, at 8pm ET/5pm PT on FXX.  All five shows will be produced by Bob Bain Productions.
