Gloomy Eyes Up For Emmy Nomination For Outstanding Original Interactive Program

-

Immersive VR story Gloomy Eyes is up for an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Original Interactive Program category.

The experience released a few months ago for PC VR and more recently for the Oculus Quest, with a story that runs for around 30 minutes, split across 3 episodes.There’s been a fair amount of buzz around Gloomy Eyes, both before and after release. It’s narrated by Colin Farrell and was featured at festivals like Sundance and South by Southwest in 2019. It even won multiple awards at the 2019 Raindance Immersive festival.

Now Gloomy Eyes is set to keep its successful run going even longer, looking to grab an Emmy nomination in the Outstanding Original Interactive Program category. Atlas V confirmed that the team is pushing for the nomination and encouraged those who are eligible to vote (members of the Television Academy) to do so before voting closes on July 13.

The category isn’t specifically exclusive to VR or AR experiences either — last year, the same award went to NASA InSight’s Mars Landing, however VR experience Traveling While Black by Felix & Paul Studios was also nominated. There are other categories that have featured VR projects in the past as well, such as the Outstanding Innovation in Interactive Media and the Outstanding Creative Achievement in Interactive Media categories.

The Emmys are set to take place this September, but we’re not sure whether these immersive and interactive media categories will be announced on the same day as the main show or at an earlier date.

Gloomy Eyes is available for Oculus Quest and PC VR now. You can read our review here.


Correction: An earlier version of this post incorrectly represented the status of a potential nomination for Gloomy Eyes. The story is now correct and we apologize for the error.
