COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey Wins Four Emmy Awards

Last month, we learned that COSMOS: A SpaceTime Odyssey received an impressive 12 Emmy nominations:

  • Outstanding Art Direction For Variety, Nonfiction, Reality or Reality-Competition Program
  • Outstanding Cinematography For Nonfiction Programming
  • Outstanding Directing For Nonfiction Programming
  • Outstanding Picture Editing For Nonfiction Programming
  • Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score)
  • Outstanding Main Title Design
  • Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music
  • Outstanding Documentary Or Nonfiction Series
  • Outstanding Sound Editing For Nonfiction Programming (Single Or Multi-Camera)
  • Outstanding Sound Mixing For Nonfiction Programming
  • Outstanding Special And Visual Effects
  • Outstanding Writing For Nonfiction Programming

Earlier tonight, the Creative Arts awards (which include all the nominations for COSMOS) were handed out and the show took home awards in four categories:

  • Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score)
  • Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music
  • Outstanding Sound Editing For Nonfiction Programming (Single Or Multi-Camera)
  • Outstanding Writing For Nonfiction Programming

Despite not taking home the one award they all *really* wanted (for best nonfiction series), Seth MacFarlane lauded his show’s winners on Twitter:

When Alan Silvestri accepted his award for “Original Main Title Theme Music,” he memorably gave a special shout-out:

“I have two special thanks left.” He then thanked “Neil DeGrasse Tyson” and “the voice of Neil DeGrasse Tyson.”

Alas, Neil deGrasse Tyson will go home Emmy-less this year. (All the more reason to have a second season of the show.)

In case you’re curious, in 1981, the original COSMOS received five nominations and took home three Emmys.
