NEWS: King Star King’s JJ Villard Wins an Emmy for Individual Achievement In Animation

The 67th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards™ ceremony was done and pre-recorded last week in Los Angeles, and I guess it’s being broadcasted on TV right now, as I write this. Ricky Gervais was hosting the show, which makes me really happy, turning all those plastic celebrity smiles into awkward celebrity smiles. I’m gonna watch the opening skit tomorrow on YouTube.

But that’s not the only “outstanding” thing in such a predictable show. The Adult Swim Emmy-nominated shows Robot Chicken and Childrens Hospital did not win this time, – and my bet about Too Many Cooks has failed miserably – but something even more odd was worthy of the prize.

In an unexpected choice from the Television Academy Judges, King Star King creator JJ Villard, as well as Robot Chicken’s Bradley Schaffer and a bunch of animators from Cartoon Network Studios, got this year’s special Juried Award for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation, one of the most important distinction in animation excellence, aside from the many other festivals and award ceremonies.

FUCKING JJ VILLARD!! THE MOST DEPRAVED AND WICKED MASTERMIND IN ADULT SWIM HISTORY AT THIS MOMENT OF TIME!! CREATOR OF THE ANIMATED TV SHOW THAT SURPASSED THE LIMIT CLIFF OF TV!!!

This might be a remarkable moment in television history that a lot of conservatives will try to hide. Congrats to JJ Villard, Titmouse Inc and Adult Swim for this achievement. If you think you have the guts, follow the exploits of King Star King on adultswim.com. It may be gruesome and extremely perverse, but the animation quality is outstanding! You have to appreciate the art in it.
