Creative Arts Emmys Recognize 'Stranger Things,' 'Veep,' Bledel, McCarthy

RuPaul Is An Emmy Winner—Again!

RuPaul Is An Emmy Winner—Again!

On basic cable (AMC), with its third consecutive Best Drama nomination, yet thus far no Emmy wins in any category. The 2017 Creative Emmy Awards will air on FXX as a special on September 16.

Noah's show picked up the award for Outstanding Short Form Variety Series at the Creative Arts Emmy Awards, held over the weekend in Los Angeles. Lee and his team won for Outstanding Production Design for a Variety, Nonfiction, Reality or Reality-Competition Series for the February 11, 2017, episode, hosted by Alec Baldwin.

The Hollywood Reporter's awards columnist, Scott Feinberg, thinks "Big Little Lies" will most likely secure the win, although projected standings puts "Feud: Bette and Joan" and "The Night Of" as other popular choices. But McRaney also emphasised that he never chased awards stardust. Stranger Things succumbs to some of those problems, but at least its '80s pastiche has some lightness and stylish humor along with its drawn-out, occasionally plodding narrative. The Netflix sci-fi horror series, which is set to premiere its upcoming sophomore season on October 27, took home the awards for Outstanding Casting for a Drama Series, Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music and Oustanding Single-Camera Picture Editing for a Drama Series.

The nominees are AMC's "Better Caul Saul", Hulu's "The Handmaid's Tale", HBO's "Westworld", NBC's "This is Us" and three Netflix series: "The Crown", "House of Cards" and "Stranger Things".

Saturday Night Live took five trophies, including Award for Outstanding Comedy Guest Actor and Outstanding Actress awards for Dave Chappelle, as host, and Melissa McCarthy, for her guest appearances. According to Deadline, the Selma director took home the award for Outstanding Documentary or Non-Fiction Special. The show brought back the creative talents of "The Wiz Live!" director Kenny Leon (Tony victor, "A Raisin in the Sun") and script adaptor Harvey Fierstein (four-time Tony victor, "Torch Song Trilogy", "Hairspray", and "La Cage aux Folles").
