‘Bluey’.

Ludo Studio may be set to pick up its third Emmy: the company’s Bluey has been nominated for an International Emmy Kids Award.

Bluey is nominated in the Kids: Preschool category, competing against Germany’s Animanimals, Chile’s Petit and SuperWings Mission Teams – Season 3, from South Korea.

The nominations for the International Emmy Kids Awards were announced by the International Academy of Television Arts & Science at MIPCOM; there are 28 nominees in seven categories spanning 15 countries: Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, Denmark, France, Germany, India, The Netherlands, Nigeria, Norway, Singapore, South Korea, Thailand and the United Kingdom

“The geographic spread and diversity of topics addressed in this year’s nominated programs attest to the vibrancy and quality of children’s television throughout the world,” said Bruce Paisner, President & CEO of the International Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.

“We congratulate the nominees for their outstanding talent and for setting the standard of excellence we expect for young viewers worldwide.”
The Queensland-based Ludo has previously won two International Emmy Awards for its shows #7DaysLater and Doodles.

Created by Joe Brumm, Bluey – a 52 x 7 series for the ABC and BBC Studios – follows the adventures of a six-year-old blue heeler pup and her family.

The first season was released on the ABC last year, and has become somewhat of a phenomenon with kids and their parents alike: it is the most watched program on ABC iview of all time, having racked up more than 90 million program plays. Earlier this year The New York Times also sent out a call to readers, asking for recommendations for “delightful children’s programming.” It reported Bluey was “by far” the most popular submission despite, at that time, only being available in Australia.

In May, the ABC ordered a second season, created and showrun by Brumm and executive produced by Ludo co-founders Charlie Aspinwall and Daley Pearson, working with producer Sam Moor and supervising director Richard Jeffery. Both series have been produced in-house at Ludo’s Brisbane studio, employing a team of around 50 animators.

Disney has the global rights to the show outside of Australia, NZ and China. It is currently screening on Disney Junior and will be on the upcoming streaming service Disney+ when it launches later this year.


The winners of the International Emmy Kids Awards will be announced in Cannes, France on March 31, 2020.
