Night two of The Creative Arts Emmys Awards took place tonight and it was clear that Chernobyl, Game of Thrones and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel came to win, and to win big! Here’s some few takeaways of the nights biggest winners.
Game of Thrones absolutely lit its competition on fire tonight, winning a whopping 10 awards, the most for any program tonight:
- Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series
- Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Drama Series
- Outstanding Sound Mixing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour)
- Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score)
- Outstanding Main Title Design
- Outstanding Stunt Coordination For A Drama Series, Limited Series Or Movie
- Outstanding Makeup For A Single-Camera Series (Non-Prosthetic)
- Outstanding Fantasy/Sci-Fi Costumes
- Outstanding Special Visual Effects and Outstanding Sound Editing For A Comedy Or Drama Series (One Hour).
Game of Thrones is sure to break its own record of most Emmys won in a single year. The current record is 12, and Thrones is up for seven categories next weekend. The Outstanding Drama Series award looks all but certain.
Chernobyl extremely over-performed this evening taking home seven wins in the Limited Series or Movie category, compared to just one win for When They See Us. Not to worry When They See Us fans, its lone Emmy win this evening was Outstanding Casting for a Limited Series or Movie – a good sign When They See Us is still in the running for Outstanding Limited Series or Movie.
The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel looks like is solidified its bid for Outstanding Comedy Series. Even though it lost Outstanding Casting for a Comedy Series to Fleabag, Maisel still walKed away with a whopping seven awards, including Outstanding Guest Actor and Actress in a Comedy Series for Luke Kirby and Jane Lynch, respectively. Tonight, Lynch won her fifth Emmy!
The Handmaid’s Tale also had a decent run this evening. Winning three of their twelve nominations, including a Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series win for Bradley Whitford, and in a shocking turn of events, Cherry Jones prevailed over favorite Phylicia Rashad for Outstanding Guest Actress in a Comedy Series. Whitford won his third Emmy this evening, and not only does he have three Emmys for three different series (The West Wing, Transparent), he’s also the only person in Emmys history to win a Guest Actor Emmy in the drama and comedy categories. Here’s a complete list of winners from night one and two of the Creative Arts Emmy Awards.
Next week is the final telecast at the Emmys, and if tonight is any indication of what’s to come next week, look for big wins for Game of Thrones, Chernobyl and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel. The 71st Annual Primetime Emmy Awards are Sunday, September 22nd at 8pmET/5pmPT on Fox.
