The Academy of Television Arts & Sciences presented the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys over the weekend, handing out the trophies on Saturday and Sunday nights.
Among the highlights, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” claimed 10 trophies on Sunday, Jane Lynch was honored as Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series and Luke Kirby was named Outstanding Guest Actor in a Comedy Series, both for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”
Cherry Jones and Bradley Whitford were honored as Outstanding Guest Actress and Actor in a Drama Series, both for “The Handmaid’s Tale.”
The Hollywood Reporter notes that the winners on Saturday night included “Queer Eye,” “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” “Leaving Neverland,” “Our Planet” and “RuPaul’s Drag Race.” “Free Solo” and “Chernobyl” each claimed seven Emmys.
“Meanwhile, ‘Springsteen on Broadway’ collected a win for best directing for a variety special, but the show itself lost best variety special (pre-recorded) to ‘Carpool Karaoke: When Corden Met McCartney Live From Liverpool,’ denying Springsteen EGOT status,” THR reports. “In addition, Beyonce and her concert film ‘Homecoming’ lost in every category it was nominated for.”
