The episode was nominated for a Directors Guild of America Award and won an Emmy Award for writing and an Eddie Award for editing. "Made in America" – especially its closing scene – has been the subject of much discussion, criticism, and analysis. It has, like the whole series, taken a prominent place in American popular culture.
