SciFiWire reports Joss has won!

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog on Saturday won the Emmy Award for short-format live-action entertainment programs, a first for creator Joss Whedon, whose only previous Emmy nomination was for writing the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode “Hush,” which he didn’t win. The award was one of the Creative Arts Primetime Emmys presented in Los Angeles, which recognize technical and other achievements for the 2008-’09 season.

(…)The 43-minute musical centers on the title wannabe supervillain, played by Neil Patrick Harris, who secretly pines for Penny (Felicia Day) while scheming to vanquish the superhero Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion) and gain entry into the Evil League of Evil…

Lucky for the networks and cable channels that  Sci Fi/Fantasy shows are making it into production or they would have NOTHING to award anyone! What best real dance scene in a reality show? lol
