Even Without Game of Thrones, HBO Claims 19 Creative Arts Emmys


Noah's show, The Daily Show, won a Creative Emmy Award in the Short Form Variety Series for his Youtube show Between the Scenes.

The show has received 18 Emmy nominations overall.

The Netflix series The Crown, created by playwright Peter Morgan based on his Queen Elizabeth II docu-play The Audience, won in the categories of Outstanding Period/Fantasy Costumes and Outstanding Production Design for a Narrative Period Program.

"Westworld", "Stranger Things", and "Saturday Night Live" emerged as the early leaders in this year's Emmy race after the second night of the 69th Creative Arts Emmys on Sunday. Veteran arranger-conductor Rickey Minor won his first Emmy (on his sixth nomination) for Music Direction for the ABC special Taking the Stage: African-American Music and Stories That Changed America. He took home the same award last year, so maybe we are seeing him become the Julia Louis-Dreyfuss of this category for future years to come.

After years of predictable wins and categories filled with the usual suspects, this year there's some serious competition in the drama categories *cue drumroll*.

Comm beat out Chance The Rapper, who was nominated for "Saturday Night Live" from the film, Last Christmas.

Melissa McCarthy won an Emmy over the weekend for her star turn as Sean Spicer on Saturday Night Live.

For "Westworld", the series' five wins included special visual effects and makeup for a single-camera series (non-prosthetic).

The first season of the Duffer Brothers' highly praised sci-fi show was awarded for its cast, picture editing, title design, sound editing and theme music.

The Creative Arts Emmys might not get the buzz and attention of the ceremony's prime-time sister, airing September 17, but an Emmy is an Emmy, right?

At that event, Bell took a bullhorn and yelled, "But the thing we have to remember is that the Bay Area does not always stand for all of us equally ..."

HBO now leads the total 2017 Emmy wins with 19, followed closely by Netflix with 16.
