Apple's 'Carpool Karaoke' wins Creative Arts Emmy for the second year

Apple has secured another Emmy award for Apple Music's 'Carpool Karaoke: the Series,' with the iPhone maker continuing to win accolades from the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences ahead of the launch of its subscription video service, Apple TV+.




On the first night of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards on Sunday, at a ceremony at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, Apple's "Carpool Karaoke: the Series" won in the category of Short Form Variety Series.

The streaming show is a long-form version of the popular segment from CBS' "The Late Late Show with James Corden," with the talk show host praising both his show and the spinoff. "We just want to be a place people go to have a really nice time before, or let's be honest, while they fall asleep," Corden told Variety.

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards honor outstanding artistic and technical achievement in various TV and program genres. While the Primetime Emmy Awards are better known and are the main awards, the Creative Arts version recognizes other elements of show production and types of content not served under the Primetime accolades.

This isn't the first time the show produced for Apple has received a Creative Arts Emmy award. In 2018, the show won the category of Outstanding Short Form Variety Series, the same category as this year's repeat performance.

"Carpool Karaoke: the Series" was renewed for its third season in July, with new episodes starring the cast of "Stranger Things," Snoop Dogg, and Kendall Jenner on the way.

Main rival streaming service Netflix dominated the awards, acquiring 15 wins over the night.

"Carpool Karaoke" is one of a number of shows available to Apple Music, with Apple primed to bring a number of other titles to its customers later this year as part of the Apple TV+ subscription. Starting in November and priced at $4.99 per month, or free for a year with the purchase of Apple hardware, the subscription includes shows such as Jason Momoa vehicle "See," "The Morning Show with Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, "Dickinson" starring Hailee Steinfeld, and "Snoopy in Space" among others.

Sunday's award is the second Apple has secured for its content. Apple has gleaned previous wins involving technology, such as the creation of Firewire and integrating Siri into Apple TV. Some of its advertisements have also received nominations for Outstanding Commercial Emmys, as well as securing an award for "Think Different" in 1998.

    If that's what passes for creativity, then this tells us more about how crap the Emmy's are, than about how good Carpool Karaoke is...

    Yet another example of how the denizens of tech blog comment sections live in a different universe. (See above post) Carpool Karaoke has been derided, dismissed, mad fun of, laughed at by the naysayers who live in tech blog caves. And it wins an Emmy!

    Apple’s products, now specifically TV+, are greeted with the same derision and yet the company continues to succeed. It reminds me of the Steve Jobs interview in which he said Microsoft had no taste... and meant it.

    It's hard to have a sense of fun and play when all you do is sit at a keyboard all day and assign yourself the role of cultural judge, jury, and executioner.

    IIRC, the context beforehand was that he was talking about fontography and how the font rendering technology Apple used at the time really tried to capture the rich history of that field and what mattered to font designers.  Whereas Microsoft just used pictures of characters since they really didn't understand why anyone would need anything more than that.  The technical-minded approach, without a care for the human side of things.  Hence not having any taste (for art).  It's a bit different from the egocentrism and narrow/disconnected interests of the tech blog community.

    ....So the Emmy isn't real? Or "doesn't count" because Apple?

    Nope, didn't trigger me at all.  I just found it a bit of a stretch to apply the "no taste" comment in this context when it was about Microsoft's lack of appreciation of art.

    Huh?  I was commenting on how the people on tech blogs who are dismissing Carpool Karaoke lack any sense of what people who don't sit behind a keyboard all day do for fun, why they might enjoy it, and hence why it won an Emmy.  Tunnel visioned egocentrism in their online culture.
