Me and My Emmy: Tim Miller
The executive producer discusses his appreciation for the animation community.
Primetime Emmy Tally: Two
How He Got the Gold: As executive producer of Love Death + Robots, which won for outstanding short form animated program in 2019 and 2021.
Now for the Noms: Miller won each time he was nominated.
Talent Pool: "Events like the Emmys are a keen reminder of how proud I feel to be a part of the industry. So many talented people. It's an honor to be invited to the party, but to win is a bit overwhelming. Especially on this show, where it's such a team effort and I feel like I'm just the dude who gets to hold the trophy on stage for a minute, trying not to get choked up."
Picture Perfect: "Our Emmys sit on a big table at Blur [Studio]. A table which just happens — coincidentally, I assure you — to be right behind my desk. It's not like I'm trying to intimidate all the people I have Zoom calls with, but if they choose to be impressed, who am I to stop them?"
Happy Surprise: "[Executive producer] David Fincher and I spent a decade having meetings in which we were told that an anthology show of adult animation would never work. That the animation community would honor us with Emmys is not something I'd have put money on, and I'm so happy to be wrong."
Boosts and Booms: "I'm drawn to stories that leave me feeling positive. Oh, and shit blowing up, I do like a bit of that."
