Wieden + Kennedy Wins Its Fourth Straight Emmy, This Time for P&G 'Best Job' takes prize; see all the nominees here
Wieden + Kennedy is the Bryan Cranston of ad agencies—when it comes to Emmy Awards, no one else seems to come close. The agency picked up its fourth straight Emmy at Saturday's Creative Arts Emmys, this time for Procter & Gamble's "Best Job," the tear-jerking salute to moms that you probably saw several thousand times during the Olympics. W+K previously won for Chrysler's "Born of Fire" (2011), Old Spice's "The Man Your Man Could Smell Like" (2010) and Coca-Cola's "Heist" (2009). You have to go back to 2008 to find another agency winning the prize—that was DDB Chicago for the Bud Light "Swear Jar" spot. This year, only two agencies competed for the prize. Two other W+K spots were in the running: "It's Halftime in America" for Chrysler, the Super Bowl spot starring Clint Eastwood; and Target's "Color Changes Everything," from W+K's New York office. The other two nominees were Volkswagen spots from Deutsch LA: the Super Bowl teaser "The Bark Side" and the Super Bowl commercial "The Dog Strikes Back." See those four spots after the jump.
