Disney’s ‘Prep & Landing’ Delivers at Creative Emmy Awards; ABC and Disney Channel’s ‘Wizards’ Also Charm

The Creative Emmy Awards ceremony took place at the Nokia Theater LA Live in Los Angeles last night and although perennially-strong HBO took the top spot with 17 wins, the Disney/ABC Television Group finished strong with 16 between ABC and Disney Channel. The event leads up to the 62nd Annual Primetime Emmy Awards on August 29.

Leading the pack for Disney was its half-hour holiday special ‘Prep & Landing’ which took home a total of four awards including Outstanding Animated Program. The remaining three were awarded as part of the jury-awarded Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation in which a peer of animators select one, multiple or no winners. In this case, three of the winners came from the same program: Andy Harkness for art direction, William M. George III for background key design and Joe Mateo for storyboarding.
