Kevin Clash Wins Fourth Consecutive Daytime Emmy® Award
for His Role as SESAME STREET’s Elmo
PBS KIDS Programs Are Honored With a Total of 12 Daytime Emmy® Awards, Including Creative Arts Emmys
At the 39th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards ceremony on June 23, Muppeteer Kevin Clash brought home a trophy for the iconic PBS KIDS series SESAME STREET. Clash received the award from the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) for Outstanding Performer in a Children’s Series for his role as Elmo, the series’ effervescent red monster. This is the eighth Outstanding Performer Emmy® for Clash and his alter ego, Elmo.
Now in its 42nd season, SESAME STREET is produced by Sesame Workshop. The people on this special street learn life’s lessons together, provide young viewers with strong role models and teach children that everyone brings a special ability to the community. On SESAME STREET, children learn to use their imaginations, build social skills and respect people’s differences.
The award is the latest Daytime Emmy® for PBS KIDS programs, which were honored earlier this month with 11 Daytime Creative Arts Emmy® Awards.
Complete lists of this year’s Daytime Emmy® winners are available on the NATAS website.
PBS congratulates our good friends — Kevin and Elmo — for this recognition.
