‘Octonauts’ and ‘Peter Rabbit’ Nominated for Five Emmy Awards

Silvergate Media’s preschool slate receives awards kudos.

Silvergate Media has announced that Peter Rabbit and Octonauts have been nominated for a total of five awards at this year’s Daytime Emmy awards.

Currently in its second season, Peter Rabbit, a 3D animated TV series for preschoolers, picked up nomination in three categories -- outstanding directing in a preschool animated program, outstanding sound mixing in a preschool animated program, and outstanding writing in a preschool animated program.

“We are thrilled with, and grateful for, the ongoing recognition of Peter Rabbit,” says executive producer Paula Rosenthal. “This year Peter Rabbit turns 124. It’s humbling to think the success of our show is helping to keep Beatrix Potter’s classic tale relevant to a new generation.”

Octonauts, an undersea preschool adventure now in its fourth season, was nominated for outstanding writing in a preschool animated program and outstanding special class animated program. 

Octonauts is made for anyone with a curious mind, a love of nature, and a soft spot for daredevil cats,” says Octonauts executive producer Kurt Mueller. “125 episodes in, we are beyond thrilled for the recognition the show has received.”
