Brandi Carlile, Joshua Bassett Win at 2023 Children’s & Family Emmys – Billboard

Written by on 17/12/2023


Brandi Carlile and Joshua Bassett were among the winners at the second annual Children’s & Family Creative Arts Emmy Awards, which were held on Saturday (Dec. 16) at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles.

Carlile won outstanding original song for a preschool program for writing “One Sacred Thing” from Jam Van. The singer-songwriter has won nine Grammys in the last five years and is nominated for two more awards at the ceremony, set for Feb. 4.

Bassett is best-known for his starring role as high school student Ricky Bowen in High School Musical: The Musical: The Series (2019–23). “Finally Free,” which he co-wrote with Tova Litvin and Doug Rockwell for that series, won outstanding original song for a children’s or young teen program.

The Children’s & Family Creative Arts Emmy Awards is different from the Daytime Emmys Creative Arts Awards, which were held at the same hotel earlier in the day.

According to the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS), children’s and family content represents the fastest-growing genre that NATAS awards, with a 23% increase in related programming the past two years. With more than 3,000 submissions, the competition is now the largest that NATAS oversees.

The Children’s & Family Creative Arts Emmy ceremony was streamed live on NATAS’ dedicated viewing platform, available on the web at watch.theemmys.tv and via The Emmys apps for iOS, tvOS, Android, FireTV, and Roku (full list at apps.theemmys.tv).
