Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn gets an Emmy nomination

Oustsanding Main Title Design

I don't care if you like Halo 4, or any game in the series for that matter. Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn is far and away the best example of how to adapt a videogame franchise to a live-action setting. I watched it expecting little more than an hour and a half of marketing hype, and was treated to a well produced live-action videogame adaptation instead.

The Academy of Television Art & Sciences seems to recognize this in some capacity, nominating Forward Unto Dawn for an Emmy in Outstanding Main Title Design. Cynics may point out the relatively low esteem of the category, but it's a freakin' Emmy for a one-off web series, and is going up against HBO's Newsroom, FX's American Horror Story: Asylum, Starz' Da Vinci Demons, CBS' Elementary, and History Channel's Vikings.

Congrats to the folks at Machinima and 343.
