David Tennant wins Emmy for The Clone Wars



Star Wars: The Clone Wars maybe ending, but the popular animated series is going out with a flourish!

Last night the series won two Daytime Emmys.

Dave Filoni released a statement on Facebook about the show's wins:

Everyone, as you know tonight Star Wars: The Clone Wars won an Emmy for Outstanding Special Class Animation and David Tennant won Friday for Outstanding Performer in an Animated Series for his work as Huyang.

These awards represent the hard work of everyone who has worked on The Clone Wars' 5 seasons. Whether you worked on Clone Wars in the Bay Area, Singapore, Taipei, or Tokyo we all did this together.

Star Wars fans, your support and dedication to The Clone Wars helped champion our cause year after year. This win is for you as well, thank you from everyone at Lucasfilm, now let's celebrate!!

Tennant will be reprising his role as Doctor Who, in the 50th Anniversary special, this November.

Filoni is currently working on the next Star Wars animated series, Star Wars Rebels, launching late 2014.
