Apple Wins Its First Emmy Award For ‘Carpool Karaoke’

It’s the first time that the world’s most valuable company has been recognized for original programming.

Apple’sCarpool Karaoke” was named Outstanding Short Form Variety Series on Sunday, giving the tech giant its first-ever Primetime Emmy Award.

Apple purchased the series, which is based on a segment from “The Late Late Show With James Corden,” in 2016. It was the company’s second foray into original programming.

The series’ executive producer, Eric Pankowski, said that the win was “a sign of the times that TV isn’t what it used to be.”

“They let us do our show and play in this sandbox ... We are really excited to be here and do them proud,” Pankowski said, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Memorable moments from the show have included a Cyrus family reunion, packed with terrible mullet wigs, grills and, of course, a rendition of “Achy Breaky Heart”:

And who could forget when Ariana Grande and Seth MacFarlane got together for an episode to perform a duet of “Suddenly Seymour” from “Little Shop of Horrors”?:
