The Clone Wars, despite being canceled, picked up two Daytime Emmys over the weekend: Outstanding Special Class Animated Program & David Tennant (voice of Huyang) for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Program.

At the main Daytime Emmy presentation on Sunday, Carrie Fisher presented the Animated Program award to George Lucas, Dave Filoni, Cary Silver and Athena Portillo for the Animated Program win. Fisher did slip in reference to dropping acid, while George had his own slip of the tongue.

David Tennant's award was given out on Friday at the Creative Arts presentation and Dave Filoni remarked on Tennant's tenure on Doctor Who as a reason to cast him as the droid: “I absolutely loved what David Tenant was doing on Doctor Who. There was such a quizzical nature to his character, a sense of whimsy, but he could still get very powerful emotion out of the character — a lot of intensity, a lot of anger — just an incredible display of range.”

After switching to Saturday mornings for its final season, Star Wars: The Clone Wars was eligible for Daytime Emmys and earned seven nominations.
