Starting Over wins Emmy for editing; MTV’s Made wins best Special Class series

Starting Over was officially cancelled last fall, but it has received one final Emmy.

The show won for “Outstanding Achievement in Single Camera Editing,” the same award it won last year, at the daytime creative arts award ceremony. That honors technical work in daytime TV.

In 2005, Starting Over was named the best “special class series,” which it was also nominated for this year, but it lost to MTV’s Made during the non-technical daytime Emmy ceremony.
