Dr Horrible Wins an Emmy!

Dr Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog has won the 2009 Emmy Award for Short Format Live Action Entertainment .

Go, Team Horrible! And take that, big studios! Here’s the team showing off their prize:

The competition in the category was impressive this year: The Daily Show, Bruce Springsteen’s Superbowl half-time show, 30 Rock’s “Kenneth the Web Page” webisode series,  and Battlestar Galactica’s “Face of the Enemy” webisode series (the BSG “Razor” webisodes won last year in this category). Them’s some Bad Horses to beat!

And if you’re wondering how you missed the Emmy awards broadcast, you didn’t – at least, not if you’re thinking of the big awards program where the Best Drama, Best Comedy, Actor Actress, etc awards are presented. That’s the “Prime Time Emmy Awards,” which this year will be Sunday September 20, and will be hosted by Dr. Horrible’s own Neal Patrick Harris, which is reason enough to watch. (Maybe he’ll sing and bring out the freeze ray and goggles!)

The vast majority of Emmys are presented a week earlier at the Creative Arts Primetime Emmy Awards ceremony, which was held yesterday. These less glamorous awards include all the craft and technical awards (makeup, lights, special effects, costumes, stunts, etc etc) plus documentaries, children’s and animated programming, and lately, cool stuff like original web programming.

The Creative Arts Emmy Award ceremony will be broadcast during the day on Friday Sept 18 on the E! channel 1 pm Eastern/Pacific.
