Rick And Morty, Coco And Blade Runner Nominated For VR Emmys

Rick And Morty, Coco And Blade Runner Nominated For VR Emmys

A pair of projects built for Oculus VR headsets by Los Angeles-based studio Magnopus — Coco and Blade Runner 2049: Memory Lab — are nominated for an Emmy this year in the Outstanding Original Interactive Program category.

The projects are nominated alongside Google Spotlight Stories’ Back to The Moon, NASA JPL: Cassini’s Grand Finale and Spider-Man Homecoming VR Experience.

As Pixar’s first VR project, Coco VR is notable because it’s an interactive multiplayer VR experience for both Gear VR and Rift that lets you visit the world of the afterlife as depicted in the movie. The Blade Runner experience isn’t multiplayer, but it uses captured performances that do a lot to add to a sense of visiting that bleak future from the film.

Another category, Outstanding Creative Achievement In Interactive Media Within A Scripted Program, nominates Rick And Morty: Virtual Rick-ality alongside Westworld, Mr. Robot, Silicon Valley and 13 Reasons Why.

The 70th Emmy Awards will air on Monday, Sept. 17.
