The Creative Arts Emmys awards ceremony was held tonight in Los Angeles and the winners of all of the technical categories were announced. Game of Thrones was nominated for nine different Creative Arts awards and ended up taking home the gold for Best Main Title Design!
Somewhat surprisingly, they lost in a few other categories where I felt they had a good chance at winning, including Best Casting (they were beat out by Boardwalk Empire), Best Costumes (The Borgias won), Best Stunts (Southland got the statue), and Best Visual Effects (Boardwalk Empire again). They also lost in the categories of Best Hairstyling, Best Make-up (prosthetic and non-prosthetic), and Best Sound Editing.
Winter Is Coming: Too bad about all those losses. I figured at least a couple of those would be wins. We definitely got overlooked for Best Casting. Nina Gold shoulda won that one. But still, the one award they did win was well-deserved. Congrats to Angus Wall and his team!
