Taylor Swift Wins Early Emmy Award
Taylor Swift is going to have to make some room on her trophy shelf, because she’s got a brand new kind of award coming her way.
The artist nabbed herself an Emmy this week for her AMEX Unstaged: Taylor Swift Experience, which she executive produced, in the category of Original Interactive Program. The unique program allowed fans access to a 360-degree view of the impressive set for Swift’s “Blank Space” music video, directed by Joseph Kahn and released in late 2014.
Swift was stunned and overjoyed by the announcement Sept. 10, as evidenced by her tweet:
The Creative Arts portion of the Emmys is slated for Sept. 12, while the Primetime Emmys air Sept. 20. The rest of the winners will be announced on those dates.
All Swift needs now is an Oscar and a Tony, and she’ll have earned the highest honor of a creative person in the arts — the coveted EGOT status.
Swift recently released her new music video for “Wildest Dreams" during the MTV VMAs, which features the singer-songwriter playing an old-Hollywood style brunette starlet caught up in a dramatic affair with a co-star. The artist has been on her 1989 World Tour, surprising audiences in every city with a staggering array of guest performers, including Justin Timberlake, Sam Hunt, Natalie Maines and even Friends’ Lisa Kudrow for a one-time-only performance of Phoebe Buffay's “Smelly Cat.”
