Adult Swim‘s fan-favorite show Rick and Morty now has an Emmy award under its belt. Only in its third season, the sci-fi/comedy cartoon counts multitudes of stars among its fanbase, including Kanye West and Logic. Thanks to its blend of quick wit and creative storytelling, the Emmy committee has now taken notice.

Co-creator Justin Roiland took to Twitter to showcase a cue card from the ceremony and thank another celebrity friend, The Weeknd, after the Internet-famous episode “Pickle Rick” picked up the prize for Outstanding Animated Program.
