'Arcane,' 'Love, Death & Robots,' and 'Big Mouth' — animation favorites at the Emmy Awards

I'm deferring to the judgment of Gold Derby editors Christopher Rosen and Joyce Eng for animation as well as their picks for all the other categories I've already covered in Emmy Experts slugfest: Our 2022 Creative Arts predictions -- Night 1.

Gold Derby editors and Experts Christopher Rosen and Joyce Eng share their predictions for the first night of the 74th Primetime Creative Arts Emmys on Saturday, Sept. 3, which is all about unscripted and nonfiction fare. Will RuPaul seven-peat in Best Reality Host? Can Sir David Attenborough hold off Barack Obama in Best Narrator? (Night 2 predictions coming on Aug. 30.)
I generally agree with Rosen and Eng on the winners and I'm not even going to bother making my own picks for live and recorded variety specials. I'll just concur that "Arcane" will win Outstanding Animated Program, "Love, Death & Robots" will take home the statuette for Outstanding Short Form Animated Program, and Maya Rudolph will three-peat for Outstanding Character Voice-Over Performance. In anticipation, here's the Twitter image promoting her nomination.

By the way, both "Arcane" and "Love, Death, and Robots" have already won juried awards for Outstanding Individual Achievement in Animation. "Arcane" earned three and "Love, Death & Robots" took home one. Joining them are "The Boys Presents: Diabolical" and "The House" with one each. Congratulations!

I'll be back with the Night 2 video to wrap up my coverage of the 74th Primetime Creative Arts Emmy Awards. Stay tuned.
