Adult Swim’s animated series Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal from won two Creative Arts Emmys on Sunday including Best Animated Program for the second half of season 1 consisting of 3 episodes and Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation.
The competition was tough for the Best Animated title, Primal beat out Big Mouth, Bob’s Burgers, The Simpsons, and South Park.
“I’m beside myself right now,” said lead voice actor Aaron LaPlante in a statement to Deadline. “I love this show so much, being a part of it, and working with Genndy Tartakovsky. Congrats to everyone who makes this art happen.”
Primal features a caveman at the dawn of evolution. A dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world.
Tartakovsky is the Emmy-winning creator of the hit animated series Dexter’s Laboratory and Samurai Jack, along with directing the original Star Wars: Clone Wars series.
Primal previously earned three Emmy Awards including Outstanding Individual Achievement In Animation for Art Director Scott Wills, Character Designer Stephen DeStefano, and Tartakovsky for Storyboard Artist.
The series was also lauded at the Annie Awards earlier this year with two accolades: Outstanding Achievement for Directing in an Animated Television/Broadcast Production and Best General Audience Animated Television/Broadcast Production.
Season 2 will also have 10 episodes but no release date has been announced as of yet.
