“Arcane” Takes Home Emmy Award for Best Animated Program

Arcane just made history as the first streaming show to win an Emmy award for Outstanding Animated Program.

The series beat other top animated shows like Bob’s Burgers, Rick and Morty, The Simpsons’, and What If…? to win the award.

With Bob’s Burgers winning the award in 2017, The Simpsons’ winning it in 2019, and Rick and Morty winning it in 2020, the win is no easy feat. 

In addition to this, the show also won awards in three other categories, which makes for a total of four out of the five categories it was nominated in.

Before Arcane, two other Netflix shows – Big Mouth and Bojack Horseman – had gotten a nomination for the same award.

Arcane's popularity should guarantee that Riot Games is going to continue producing similar content after Season 2 comes out next year.
