Genndy Tartakovsky Wins Fourth Emmy as TV Academy Announces Juried Awards

The Television Academy announced the juried award winners for the 2020 Emmy Awards in categories including Animation, Choreography, Interactive Programming and Motion Design, set to be celebrated at the 2020 Creative Arts Awards ceremony on Thursday, Sept. 17, streaming on

Among the winners is artist and animator Genndy Tartakovsky, who has now won four Emmys total, the latest for his work as storyboard artist on his Adult Swim series “Primal.” The series received two other juried wins this year in addition to Tartakovsky’s: one for art director Scott Wills and one for character designer Stephan DeStefano. Tartakovsky’s prior Emmy wins include consecutive wins in 2004 and 2005 in Outstanding Animated Program (for programming one hour or more) for “Star Wars: Clone Wars” and “Star Wars: Clone Wars Vol. 2 (Chapters 21-25),” as well as Outstanding Animated Program (for programming less than one hour) in 2004 for “Samurai Jack.”

Other winners in Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation were Jill Dykxhoorn, for her work as a lead background artist on “Archer” and Dan MacKenzie, a character animator for “Cosmos: Possible Worlds.”

Entrants into juried categories are screened by a panel of professionals in the corresponding peer group with an understanding that one, more than one, or no entries might be awarded an Emmy. As such, there are no nominees. Instead, entries go through a one-step evaluation and voting process. According to the Television Academy, deliberations include open discussions of each entry, as well as a review of merits with regards to Emmy consideration.
