The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences has awarded Apple with an Emmy award. Yes, an Emmy award. And surprisingly, this is not Apple’s first Emmy award. In fact, the company has multiple Emmy awards to its name.
This year, Apple has won an Emmy award for “Contextual Voice Navigation for Discovering and Interacting with TV Content.” More specifically, Apple was awarded the Emmy for Siri integration in Apple TV which allows one to bring up the personal assistant to search for their favorite TV shows, movies, and more. The same award was also given to Comcast, Universal Electronics, and Nuance Dragon TV.

YouTube also won an Emmy for its “Video Identification Technology to Protect Content Value and Copyright.”[Via TechCrunch]
