‘The Masked Singer’ wins 2021 Emmy for costumes: Other juried winners include ‘For All Mankind,’ ‘The Simpsons’ …

The Masked Singer” is now a two-time Emmy winner for its wild, wacky and breathtaking costumes. (We can already hear Piglet oinking in delight.) The costume design team, led by Marina Toybina (watch our recent interview), claimed its first trophy last year at the 2020 Creative Arts ceremony, but now this category has been changed to a juried award, so it gets voted on weeks before all of the other races. Fox’s “The Masked Singer” shares its second prize in the Variety/Nonfiction/Reality Costumes category with two other programs — Disney+’s “Black Is King” and IFC’s “Sherman’s Showcase Black History Month Spectacular” — since juries can choose to award all of the nominees, some of the nominees or none of the nominees. Scroll down for the complete list of 2021 juried winners.

Fox’s long-running animated series “The Simpsons” took home the Emmy for Individual Achievement in Animation. It shares the honor with Adult Swim’s “Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal” and four animators from Netflix’s “Love, Death + Robots.”

Two other juried Emmys were awarded to Apple TV+. “For All Mankind: Time Capsule” claimed the Innovation in Interactive Programming category and “Calls” took home the trophy for Motion Design.

The winners of all of these juried races will receive their golden statuettes during the 2021 Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which take place at L.A. LIVE the weekend of September 11 and 12. The main Primetime broadcast airs on CBS on September 19.

Still confused by the concept of juried awards? Let’s consult the Television Academy’s rulebook: “Juried category entrants are screened by a panel of professionals in the appropriate peer groups (Animation, Costume Design, Interactive Programming and Motion Design) with the possibility of one, more than one or no entry being awarded an Emmy. As a result, there are no nominees but instead a one-step evaluation and voting procedure. Deliberations include open discussions of each entrant’s work with a thorough review of the merits of awarding the Emmy.”

Here’s a closer look at all of the winners of the juried awards for the 2021 Emmys:
