Silvergate Media has expanded its trophy collection this week, having secured a double win at the 2021 Daytime Emmy Awards for its highly acclaimed Netflix animated TV series, Hilda.
During the live streamed ceremony on Friday, Hilda found itself the recipient of the coveted award in the Outstanding Children’s Animated Series category, as well as in the Outstanding Editing in a Daytime Animated Series. The series had picked up Emmy nominations in three other categories.
The show’s latest plaudit establishes what has become a winning streak for Hilda which recently triumphed at the Annie Awards in April where it took home no fewer than three awards.
“It’s been an incredible year so far for Hilda and we’re all enormously proud of these latest Daytime Emmy Award wins,” said Waheed Alli, chief executive at Silvergate Media. “As each new season of Hilda unfolds and we go deeper into the world of Trolberg, its very gratifying to receive critical recognition at such a high level and together with Mercury Filmworks we look forward to bringing audiences more exciting adventures for Hilda in 2022.”
First launched to Netflix in September 2018, Hilda is the result of a collaborative effort between Silvergate, Mercury Filmworks and Hilda creator, Luke Pearson who first debuted the character in a popular graphic novel format.
A second season was released on December 14th 2020, delivering new adventures for the blue-haired heroine as she delves deeper into the magical wilderness of Trolberg. Through her entertaining and inspiring adventures, Hilda learns that not everyone shares her open-minded view of the ‘hidden world’, while her Mum worries that her growing rebelliousness will lead to more trouble than Hilda can handle.
Both season one and two of Hilda are now available in 130 countries on Netflix’s global platform and Silvergate has an extended special in the pipeline. There is a consumer products program in place that spans toys, games, publishing, accessories, apparel and homewares.
