Creative Arts Emmy Awards: Winners Announced

The Creative Arts Emmy Awards were held tonight and there was no shortage of surprising winners. I was completely off on my predictions for the Guest acting categories. Dan Bucatinsky wasn’t even a frontrunner for me and he ended up taking home the statute. The voters must have actually watched the tapes. The same goes for Carrie Preston. She was by far the least known nominee in the lineup and she still managed to win (a well-deserved one too). The comedy side wasn’t as shocking. I knew it was going to come down to Newhart or Timberlake for the win. As much as I liked Timberlake this year, I don’t have any issues with Newhart finally winning an Emmy after so many years on television and so many Emmy nominations. Melissa Leo was an unexpected surprise too. She had a weird, crazy episode that I didn’t think Emmy voters would fully appreciate. I’m glad I was wrong.

One of the other big stories to come out of tonight was the (almost) unstoppable win streak of Behind the Candelabra. It went 8 for 9 in its win total. It only lost Cinematography to Top of the Lake. This wasn’t a complete surprise but I expected it to split some wins with American Horror Story: Asylum (which only won for its sound editing, an award that Behind the Candelabra wasn’t even nominated for). So it’s looking for good for Behind the Candelabra come the main telecast next week. It needs to win at least 2 more to break the record for the most wins for a TV Movie. And it needs 5 wins to break the record for both TV Movie and Miniseries. It should be interesting.
