Sesame Street probably has a Scrooge McDuck-like vault somewhere to house all of their Emmy Awards.  And every few weeks, Joey Mazzarino dives in and swims through the statuettes like they’re water.  And it looks like they’ll be adding to their stash after receiving an additional 17 Daytime Emmy Award nominations!  (For those of you who are counting, that’s one more than last year.)

And the nominees are:

  • Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Series: Sesame Street
  • Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series: Kevin Clash as Elmo
  • Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series: Joey Mazzarino as Papa Bear, Murray Monster, Blogg and AM Carson Daly
  • Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series: David Rudman as Cookie Monster and Two-Headed Monster
  • Outstanding Achievement in Art Direction/Set Decoration/Scenic Design: Sesame Street
  • Outstanding Achievement in Costume Design/Styling: Sesame Street
  • Outstanding Directing in a Children’s Series: Sesame Street
  • Outstanding Achievement in Lighting Direction: Sesame Street
  • Outstanding Achievement in Main Title and Graphic Design: Sesame Street

  • Outstanding Achievement in Sound Editing – Live Action: Sesame Street
  • Outstanding Achievement in Technical Direction/Electronic Camera/Video Control: Sesame Street

Sesame Street isn’t the only Muppet-related production to get Daytime Emmy recognition.  The Jim Henson Company’s Dinosaur Train was nominated for Outstanding Pre-School Animated Program, and Pajanimals was nominated for Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Series and Outstanding Directing in a Children’s Series.

Congratulations to everyone at Sesame Workshop and The Jim Henson Company on their nominations, and we’ll look forward to the announcement of the winners on June 16!
