Sure, it might seem unruly now that the Emmy Awards encompass not only the regular Prime Time Emmy Awards (airing live on September 18) but also two full nights of Creative Arts Emmys (September 10 and 11). However, that just means there are more awards to go around in this age of too much television, even for weirdo, hilarious Adult Swim shows. On Sunday night, Childrens Hospital creator and star Rob Corddry accepted the award for Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series, and, along with his fellow producers, the award for Outstanding Short-Form Comedy or Drama Series. Prior to Sunday night’s wins, the surreal comedy had received Emmys in 2012 and 2013, but, as this past seventh season was the series’ final, the award seemed like the perfect “good job” sticker at the end of a shot-free, clown-filled visit to the pediatrician. “This is such a great way to go out,” Corddry said while receiving his acting award. It sure was. Now how about making some more?
