Taylor Swift can add Emmy winner to her list of achievements. The 25-year-old pop star is among the list of early recipients of the TV Academy's kudos, as the group announced juried award winners on Thursday morning.

Swift nabbed an Emmy for original interactive program for her AMEX Unstaged: Taylor Swift Experience. The singer starred in and has an executive producer credit on the project, which debuted with the release of her "Blank Space" music video in 2014.

Shot with a 360-degree camera, the program allowed Swift fans to explore the sets of the elaborate Joseph Kahn-directed video for the second single off of her 1989 album.

The TV Academy announced a slew of other winners in anticipation of Saturday's Creative Arts ceremony and the Sept. 20 Primetime Emmys. Jimmy Fallon, Adult Swim's Robot Chicken and Comedy Central's Drunk History and @midnight are also on the list, which can be read in full below.
