Kevin Clash - Former Sesame Street Puppeteer Picks Up Three Creative Arts Emmys

Kevin Clash, the Sesame Street puppeteer who resigned amid an alleged underage sex scandal last year (12), has picked up three U.S. Daytime Entertainment Creative Arts Emmy Awards.

Clash, who voiced puppet Elmo for over 25 years, was named the Outstanding Performer in a Children's Series and shared the Outstanding Directing in a Children's Series title on Friday night (14Jun13).

He was also named among the executive co-producers of Sesame Street, which picked up honours for Outstanding Pre-School Children's Series.

The triple win is good news for Clash, who became the target of multiple lawsuits linking him to alleged sexual abuse.

It was also a big night for comedienne Ellen DeGeneres' talk show, which picked up six trophies, including Outstanding Special Class Writing, Outstanding New Approaches - Enhancement to a Daytime Program/Series and Outstanding Directing in a Talk Show/Morning Program.

Meanwhile, The Bold and the Beautiful won the battle of the daytime soaps with a handful of awards, including Outstanding Achievement in Hairstyling for a Drama Series and Outstanding Achievement in Music Direction and Composition for a Drama Series.

Former Doctor Who star David Tennant was also a winner - he was named Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program for his part in Cartoon Network series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

The Daytime Emmys will take place on Sunday (16Jun13).

Absolutely shameful,disgusting, and revolting. When did we lose all sense of decency? Public figures should be held to a higher standartd than non public figures as our youth look up to them as role models. The Emmys just converted themselves into a pedophile enabler. As the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100% and it is enablers who allow the predators to practice their depravities for years against our innocent little children. Enablers should be held just as legally accountable as the predators themselves!
