Helen Mirren is a Notable Winner at 2022 Children’s and Family Emmy’s for ‘Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses’

Heartstopper, Sesame Street and The Baby-Sitters Club walked away with top honors during the second night of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences’ inaugural Children’s & Family Emmy Awards.

HBO Max’s Sesame Street took the honor for outstanding preschool series, while Netflix’s The Baby-Sitters Club garnered the top award in the children’s or family viewing series category. Netflix’s Heartstopper took the win for young teen series.

Heartstopper had the most wins of the night, with four, including best guest performance in a preschool, children’s or young teen program (Heartstopper) for Olivia Colman. Netflix’s Kid Cosmic also was a multiple winner, taking home two awards.

Other notable winners included Helen Mirren, who was named best host for Cartoon Network/TBS’ Harry Potter: Hogwarts Tournament of Houses.

Hosted by Hello, Jack! The Kindness Show‘s Jack McBrayer and held at L.A.’s Wilshire Ebell Theatre, the second night of the first stand-alone iteration of the ceremony awarded performance talent and honored series, shortform, specials, writing, directing and individual achievements across preschool, children’s and young teen programming in 20 categories.

LeVar Burton, Reading Rainbow host and literacy champion, received the Lifetime Achievement Award, an honor NATAS president Adam Sharp told The Hollywood Reporter was bestowed for “his seminal work in children’s television” and a mission to support children’s literacy and knowledge — something “he has never strayed from” in his decades-long career. Laurence Fishburne presented the award to Burton after a video was shown that included praise for Burton from the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Patrick Stewart, Mayim Bialik and Run DMC’s Darryl “DMC” McDaniels.

Also during the ceremony, Sesame Street cast members Alan Muraoka and Martin P. Robinson introduced the “In Memoriam” segment by sharing personal memories of former stars Bob McGrath and Emilio Delgado, both of whom died this year.

Night one’s big winners included Netflix’s Maya and the Three and Disney+’s Sneakerella, which both took home three awards.

The 2022 ceremony was the most competitive NATAS-administered Emmys ever, with 3,000 submissions and 270 nominations and individual achievement honorees over an 18-month eligibility period. Presenters across both nights included actor-producer Fishburne, Proud Family: Louder and Prouder voice star Kyla Pratt, Heartstopper stars Joe Locke and William Gao, Molly of Denali voice performer Sovereign Bill, Madagascar: A Little Wild sign-over artist Shaylee Mansfield and show consultant Jevon Whetter, among others.

This weekend’s honors served as the first stand-alone expansion of the Emmys since 1979, and one of the first ceremonies since NATAS and the Television Academy announced in December their plans to realign the Daytime and Primetime Emmy Awards.
