This past week Pixar earned their first Emmy award win during night 4 of the remote Creative Arts Emmy Awards, for their Disney+ series, Forky Asks a Question, episode “What is Love?”
Accepting the award in pre-taped speeches (which you can watch via the Television Academy’s YouTube channel) were creator Bob Peterson and producer Mark Nielsen. “Bob and I partnered with a crew of Pixar’s best and brightest,”Nielsen said, “so we share this with everyone at Team Forky Shorts, along with everyone at Disney+.”
After praising the cast of the Forky series in particular the great Tony Hale and the comedic geniuses from the “What is Love” episode, Carol Burnett, Mel Brooks, Betty White, and the late Carl Reiner. Peterson and Nielsen went on and thanked their families sharing “Family is everything, thank you guys so much”, which prompted their families to jump into frame and toss confetti over the filmmakers and cheer in excitement.
Each episode of Forky Asks a Question features the Toy Story 4 breakout character, Forky (voiced by Tony Hale), as he figures out “what life is” by asking silly and poignant questions to other fellow toys in Bonnie’s room. After this Emmy win, let’s keep our fingers crossed that we will see a Season 2 of Forky Asks a Question coming to Disney+ soon.
