Rick and Morty took home its second outstanding animated program Emmy on Saturday. The Adult Swim comedy first won the Emmy in 2018 for its third season. Its second victory came for Season 4, which was delayed, making the series ineligible last year.

Upon receiving the honor virtually from Wanda Sykes at the Creative Arts Emmys, co-creator Dan Harmon, in a pre-taped speech thanked everyone on the Rick and Morty team, from its stars to its writing and editing team. (You can watch his remarks below)

About unruly scientist grandfather Rick’s adventures with his grandson Morty, Rick and Morty, created by Harmon and Justin Roiland, bested The Simpsons, Big Mouth, Bob’s Burgers and BoJack Horseman.

Netflix’s BoJack Horseman came to a close with its sixth and final season earlier this year. Despite having received nominations for the Outstanding Animated Program category for the last two years, the Will Arnett dark comedy cwrapped its run without an Emmy win.

Rick and Morty got the Emmy for its Season 4 episode “The Vat of Acid Episode.”
