"I want to thank everyone at the Kings who worked really hard on this episode. And, of course, thank you to the man, the reason why we're here, thank you to Bob Miller," Kings Production Editor Phillip Radke said at the award show.

It was the first win and second nomination for the Black & White series. "The Sutter Farm" was nominated in 2017.
